Mauricio Pochettino says Tottenham are heaping pressure on Chelsea after Arsenal win

Frederick Owens | 15 May, 2017, 03:02

Arsenal were beaten 2-0 by bitter local rivals Tottenham Hotspur last weekend to leave their hopes of finishing in the top four in serious doubt.

Spurs, clearly the better side, missed two excellent chances in the first forty-five minutes although Arsenal came into the game in the last 15 minutes as Aaron Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez exerted their influence. "When you start the championship, the target is not to finish above Spurs, it's to win the championship", he told Sky Sports. At half-time I felt we were in the game and in the second half we wanted to improve, we wanted to play to win the game.

"Let's fight until the end and not make conclusions to just compare to Spurs today". Well done to them. "First of all because I think the players gave their best, they were fantastic, and then for our fans". It was their ninth successive league win and the margin would have been greater but for some fine saves by Petr Cech. "Not with enough conviction and not with enough determination". I have to watch it. We needed to win to keep our Champions League. It was soft defending.

It means the hard reality is that Arsenal are 17 points behind Spurs.

Bank of England keeps rates at record low as economy slows
The pound also fell 0.7 percent to 84.87 pence per euro after the single currency saw broad buying following some weak USA data. There's also the matter of Brexit, which hasn't derailed the economy but is darkening the outlook for trade and employment.


"Look, the points are the points", he said.

Vertonghen, who led the defense superbly alongside compatriot Toby Alderweireld, said Spurs had been hungrier for victory, which also ensured they will finish above Arsenal for the first time in 22 years. "Here in England it is different with the fans wanting to watch the teams live. But I know it's an interesting subject for the media".

"We did lose the game in a very quick space of time, and after that it took us time to recover".

Asked about the significance of winning the final clash with the Gunners before White Hart Lane is dismantled and replaced by a new venue on the same site, he replied: "We weren't really focusing on that". If they win their final four games to finish with 89 points, that would be a total not bettered by anyone in the top flight since Manchester United won the League with 90 in 2008-09.
