Arsene Wenger mocks Paul Merson in press conference

Paul Merson Arsene Wenger Harry Redknapp

The practically comedic ex-England man might just have outdone himself this week, though, with an utterly bewildering comment on Arsene Wenger during an episode of A League Of Their Own.

Carragher also added that he feels that the Manchester clubs and Chelsea are the only teams that can win the League this season.

"Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with". We were 2-0 down at half-time and it could've been 10-0.

Arsenal would be Premier League champions if Arsene Wenger had the tactical nous of former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp, according to Paul Merson.

Likely augmented by their previous coming together in 2014, it's fair to say the Frenchman didn't go easy on Merson.

"Harry came in at half-time and took three men off, put three at the back, five in midfield with three rolling attackers and we won 3-2".

The comments seem even more outrageous when you consider that Redknapp has recently been sacked from his role at Birmingham, while the Arsenal boss has shown year on year that he can achieve with our underspending club year on year.

"That's when I knew he was a great manager".

Wenger and Merson's war of words stems from comments the latter made about the Gunners in 2014 when he described them as playing like an under-12 team after throwing away a three-goal lead against Anderlecht.

And Merson pointed to one particular match at Portsmouth as evidence of Redknapp's understated tactical genius.

Another wrote: "Yeah that's why Harry Redknapp is now out of a job". I managed Paul Merson.
