Ray Parlour: Spurs are a better team than Arsenal

14 November 2017

Spurs finished above Arsenal last season and while Giggs sees Pochettino as possessing the best squad at the moment, he still believes that they have some way to go before coming the true dominant force in North London.

The official showed a Premier League-high five red cards last season, and has sent two players off in his previous six North London derbies.

He was also the referee when they last beat their rivals in the Premier League, a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane in 2014.

There have been some mitigating circumstances, with the Chilean arriving back late from worldwide duty during the summer, and the German hampered by injury, but here we are heading for mid-November and between them they have just two goals and four assists.

"Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing".

And Cech thinks Tottenham made huge strides when appointing the Argentine. Success is ultimately winning trophies.

Dembele has endured a frustrating season so far as a niggling foot injury has restricted him to making just three starts for Tottenham in all competitions this campaign.

In this game we conceded a penalty that was not a penalty and an offside goal that was an offside goal. "I think they are a good side but they are not an unstoppable side".

Arsene Wenger's position as manager of Arsenal has come under scrutiny over the last year, with his decision to sign a two-year extension at the club in the summer met by disapproval from many Gunners supporters.

"The Champions League has been going great for them too with great results against Dortmund and Real Madrid".

"The big factor was the appointment of Mauricio Pochettino", Cech told Sky Sports. Of course, I want to be playing for the team and adding my value but right now I am very optimistic and feel good.

With their contracts running out in 2018 it has been suggested that Arsenal should allow both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to leave for the good of the team.

"They are an important part of the team", he added.

"They train well and we hope their form will help us reach the target".
