It’s brave words indeed to suggest that Spurs will finally finish above Arsenal in the Premier League, particularly at this stage of the season.
After Tottenham inflicted a 2-1 Derby Day defeat over The Gunners, the win seems to have produced an unwanted reaction that has seen Wenger’s side climb the table and threaten the top four places once again.
After yesterday’s game however, Dutchman Rafael van der Vaart claims that Arsenal have ‘no chance’ of finishing above us.
“Can Arsenal finish above us? No. No chance,” he said. “We’re better. They’ve had some good results recently but we’ve also got six wins and one draw now. I’m not afraid of them. I think we are the better squad, we have a bigger squad. But it’s a long season.”
At this point in the campaign, it’s better to look at the teams above us than the ones below but when the season comes to an end, if Spurs have finished above their neighbours, Champions League football should be assured.
