Walker insists Tottenham are not ‘worried’ about Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal have their own targets for the season, but there is also a mini battle between them on who can finish higher in the Premier League.

The Gunners have dominated that challenge over the past 22 years, with Spurs last ending a season above their North London rivals in 1995.

Mauricio Pochettino’s team came close to reaching the feat last season, but their Premier League title campaign crumbled in the closing stages and following a 5-1 loss to Newcastle United, they dropped to third and Arsenal moved up to second.

As it stands, Spurs are level on 50 points with the Gunners, but a better goal difference puts them in third, while Arsene Wenger’s men are fourth.

Neither could be separated in November’s Premier League meeting at the Emirates as they played out a 1-1 draw, but their clash at White Hart Lane could prove to be crucial on April 29.

Walker has admitted that finishing above Arsenal would be incredibly pleasing, but he is more focused on winning trophies.

The full-back told the Press Association

“To finish above Arsenal would be fantastic but we’re not worried about them. When I first signed I said I wanted to win trophies and I want to do that here before my time is up. I feel the team we have now is perfect. We’ve got the players and the manager to go and do something special.”
