Sherwood questions significance of London derbies

Tottenham Hotspur manager Tim Sherwood has questioned whether London derbies are as significant anymore as a result of the influx of foreign players into the Premier League.

Sherwood was speaking ahead of his side's Premier League game against strugglers Fulham on Saturday.

Asked whether London derbies were as significant anymore, Sherwood replied: "Probably not because there are not so many guys from the area and not a lot from England but it's still a game and it's a game in the Premier League and one they should be up for.

"But does it mean anymore? Probably not but it is certainly important to me and the next four games are crucial," Sherwood added.
