Arsene Wenger: We can not argue with the 17-point gap to Tottenham

Spurs downed Arsenal 2-0 in the north London derby on Sunday, but it was a victory stained by Chelsea's earlier win over Everton at Goodison Park.

Arsenal sit in sixth and six points below fourth-place Manchester City though have a game in hand.

Arsène Wenger admitted Arsenal can not argue with the north London power shift that will mean his team finish behind Tottenham Hotspur for the first time in 22 years, with 17 points now separating the clubs.

Manchester United scores the highest unbeaten streak in one single premier league season of the team's history: 25 games, 13 wins, 12 draws.


A quick scan of Chelsea's fixture list says everything you need to know: only a massive bottle job can cost them the title.

"It was a fantastic reaction - it's important to keep focused on our game", Pochettino told Sky Sports.

'This is a very big disappointment for us. We fully deserved the victory in the end. We are four behind with four games to play. It is four, with four to play, all is possible in football and we'll see what happens next week.

He said: "I think as well we were a bit too restricted in our game and we didn't play with enough freedom".


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".

White Hart Lane was rocking as Tottenham finally finished above Arsenal after waiting for 22 years to do so.

"Well done to them, but when you start the championship the target is not to finish above Spurs, it is to fight for the title. Today was another chance to see the team learn and improve". "What a day. A great weekend for us".

"I thought we were fantastic. I think still we are in the race".


Dele Alli's close-range finish and a Harry Kane penalty sealed the win, which could have been more emphatic had Alli and Christian Eriksen converted chances in the first half. We have to give everything in every game.
