Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has claimed he is not obsessed with finishing ahead of Tottenham in the league table, according to goal.
The Gunners who have just one win in their last five games have dropped places from first to third and with Tottenham sitting ahead of the Gunners, the French man has said he doesn’t care about his North London rivals position despite stats showing that the Gunners have never finished behind Spurs since moving to England.
“If Tottenham are in the race for the title, then so are we.”
“I am not obsessed by finishing ahead of Tottenham. Are they a bigger danger now than ever before? Spurs are always a threat.
“But we are not thinking about Tottenham. We just want to do well and are focused on our own performances. We have to believe in what we are doing.
“We have to look at the facts. We have not won for four games and we really have to start winning again. But we are not looking at other teams. We usually finish strong in the second half of the season, but we have gone through a rough patch. But we have to deal with that in order to win the title.
“We would like the title race to be less interesting, but there are five or six teams in it. Manchester United are still in it and West Ham mathematically as well…”
Wenger also moved to calm fears of the Gunner’s faithful who have endured a difficult last four games prior thier win against Bournemouth last weekend; having seen their team yet to claim all three points in any of those games prior to last weekend.
“There is no reason to panic,” he added. “We have not been scoring goals, but our performances have been all right.
“We played at Stoke, who are quite strong at home. And we played with 10 men versus Chelsea, which is very difficult against a strong team. We created plenty of chances versus Southampton. We are not panicking.”
