Merson: If Wenger was Redknapp, Arsenal would win the league

Harry Redknapp and Arsene Wenger both have managed Paul Merson

We were 2-0 down at half-time and it could've been 10-0.

"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".

Initially he made a good start to life at the Emirates Stadium, playing 23 times in his first Premier League campaign at the club - one more appearance than he managed at Southampton the previous year.

Reports suggest 49-year-old Merson could make a return to football with Welsh fourth-tier team Caerau but Wenger had no time for questions about lower league football when he was previewing his side's trip to Watford on Saturday (5.30pm).

Fair enough. Redknapp has been a successful manager with an FA Cup win with Portsmouth and a Premier League Manager of the Year Award with Tottenham.

Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes Harry Redknapp is tactically superior to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

He thinks Arsenal would have won more trophies under Wenger if he was as astute as Redknapp is.

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.

He left Highbury for Middlesbrough in 1997 and also had spells with Aston Villa, Portsmouth and Walsall, going on to manage the Saddlers between 2004 and 2006 before taking up a role as a media pundit for Sky Sports.

Carragher told The Telegraph's Total Football Podcast as reported by The Express, "We've always criticised Arsene Wenger for saying top four was an achievement".
