Arsenal star has aimed a swipe at Tottenham and Chelsea.

Updated: Sep 13, 2019

German shotstopper says Arsenal are the club in London - 'not Chelsea, not Tottenham'.

Bernd Leno insists that the only club to play for in London is Arsenal.

Despite Chelsea and Tottenham finishing above the Gunners and securing a Champions League spot last season, the German said his side are still the 'world club' to play for in London.

Unai Emery's side have had a better start to the new season - compared to Spurs and the Blues - and are currently fifth in the Premier League after the first four games.

When asked to compare Arsenal with his previous club Bayer Leverkusen, who he left in a £19m deal last summer, Leno told SportBild: "You can’t compare that, of course Arsenal is a world club, the club here in London.

"Not Chelsea, not Tottenham – Arsenal is the club here with fans around the world. ‘No matter where we are, also in the USA or in Asia, there are many fans of Arsenal everywhere."
