Scott Parker not worried by Arsenal

Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker has stated that his side are not worried about Arsenal cutting the gap on Tottenham to one point in the race for third.

Spurs have lost their last three league games with the Gunners winning their last three, to make it a close battle for Champions League qualification.

However, the England international feels that his side must focus on their own games and not worry about their north London rivals.

“I wouldn’t say we’re worried one bit,” he told Mirror Football.

“We’re focused. We need to win football matches. That’s it.

“We’re in such a good league. Every week you’re looking. There’s Arsenal. There’s Chelsea. Ultimately all we can do is keep performing and keep picking up results.

“We’ve got some good senior players here. William Gallas has been in this position before – he’s won championships.

“We know what we need to do. We need to all pull together and see through the last remaining part of the season.

“The second-half performance against Arsenal was nowhere near our standard. Then against United we got the performance, but we all know this is a results business.

“Hopefully we can go on a run now. We’ve got some difficult fixtures coming up,” he admitted.
