Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson believes Harry Redknapp is tactically superior to Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
Merson played under Wenger at Arsenal and was also under Redknapp's guidance at Portsmouth in 2002-03.
He thinks Arsenal would have won more trophies under Wenger if he was as astute as Redknapp is.
