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

'People say Redknapp's a wheeler-dealer and it's so disrespectful,' Merson said on Sky's A League Of Their Own.

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

'If Arsene Wenger had Harry Redknapp's tactical nous, Arsenal would win the league.' 

Redknapp was sacked as Birmingham manager after only 13 games in September.

Arsenal are fifth in the Premier League with 13 points from seven matches. They last won the Premier League under Wenger in 2004.
