We asked who you would pick for a combined Spurs-Arsenal XI, and it has produced an interesting but somewhat predictable result.

Harry Kane? Check. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang? Check. You also found room for Mesut Ozil and Dele Alli in midfield. Henrikh Mkhitaryan, with just two appearances since his move from Manchester United, also got the nod.

Unsurprisingly, Spurs and England striker Kane was picked by the most people – 74,858 of you – with team-mate and goalkeeper Hugo Lloris second (69,342) and Arsenal’s Ozil third (64,900).

Arsenal’s troubles in defence are a hot topic, and perhaps it is no surprise that your back four contains just one Gunner.

Hector Bellerin polled well, edging out Spurs counterpart Kieran Trippier while Danny Rose, with just 10 club appearances this season, was also included.
