Jamie Carragher says Arsene Wenger was right about the top four

Paul Merson Arsene Wenger Harry Redknapp

Merson, who spent 12 years at Arsenal but lasted less than a season after Wenger took charge of the club, made the comments on panel show A League of Their Own, claiming that the Gunners would win the league if Wenger had the same tactical nous as former Tottenham Hotspur boss Redknapp.

'Tactically, he's one of the best I've worked with.

Merson played under Wenger at Arsenal and was also under Redknapp's guidance at Portsmouth in 2002-03.

And despite huge criticism of Wenger over the last to seasons, he signed a new two-year deal approved by Ivan Gazidis and the club's owners.

The Sky Sports pundit played under Redknapp during a stint in the Championship with Portsmouth, during which the duo secured promotion to the Premier League after beating the odds to finish top of the table.

Ok, so Harry Redknapp is criminally underrated as a manger but it's hard to see the freshly sacked Birmingham City coach being the one thing missing from Arsenal's title ambitions.

"We [Portsmouth] were 33/1 rank outsiders to win the league that year", Merson told host James Corden.

"We won our first game at home and I thought we'd be alright and then went to Crystal Palace".

Social media was quick to respond with laughter and bemusement at Merson's comparison of three-time Premier League and seven-time FA Cup victor Wenger with Harry Redknapp. We were 2-0 down at half-time and it could've been 10-0. I thought "what have I done coming here - this is going to be embarrassing".

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