As a former Tottenham and Arsenal player, David Bentley knows a thing or two about the North London derby.

But this season's is even more exciting with both clubs going head to head in an exciting title race.

Ex-England international Bentley was in Dublin today as part of Setanta Sports' coverage of the Tottenham v Arsenal game this Saturday and spoke to Team 33's Raf Diallo about that Spurs Christmas party trip to Coppers in 2009, what Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp are as managers, as well as his brief spell in Russia.

That chat will be broadcast next Tuesday on Newstalk and as a podcast. 

But the 31-year-old, who took football fans by surprise by retiring two years ago, also gave his take on what Arsene Wenger's future could hold if Spurs and Leicester finish above them, and if he feels Tottenham can make the big step of beating Arsenal this Saturday.
