Last season, Spurs finished ahead of Arsenal for the first time in 22 years as the Gunners finished 5th in the league while Spurs ended the season as runners-up.

'Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing'.

"Spurs are the better team right now but to really have the upper hand they have to do it consistently over the new few years, although with the talented young squad they have I don't see why that won't be the case".

Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is stepping up his recovery ahead of his side's crunch clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, the Daily Mail reports.

Arsenal trail Pochettino's side by four points going into Saturday's north London derby, though the Czech global insists that The Gunners focus remains exclusively on adding more silverware.

"There is always one odd year where things can change".


Cech, though is quick to identify Pochettino as the reason for Spurs breaking into the top four - and reaching the Champions League last 16.

Despite talk about the continuous failings of Wenger and Arsenal, the Gooners have still won the FA Cup 3 out of the past 4 years.

"The big factor was the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino", Cech told Sky Sports. Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title.

Cech said: "As a team we feel that - although there is a lot of speculation, their contracts are different to everyone else's - you can see they are committed". "There was always something missing but I would say the difference was when Pochettino came".

The Gunners' form has been patchy, especially away from home, and it's hard not to draw some parallels between that and the fact their two star players, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, have yet to make the kind of contribution you'd expect from players of that talent.
