Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is not concerned with the North London power battle with Arsenal, and is only looking up on the table.

Spurs head to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday seven points ahead of their rivals and a win would go a long way to ensuring they finish above them in the league for a fifth successive year.

Mourinho is focused only on ensuring his side remains in the battle for the top four and not where the Gunners are on the table.

“I look up, I don’t look down,” he said.

“If Arsenal was seven points ahead of us, I would look to them.


“But because we have seven points more than them, I don’t look down.

“But at the same time, we look always to the next match. And if instead of Arsenal it was Villa or Newcastle, the next matches we’re going to play, exactly the same feeling.

“We feel we’re better than the position we have in the table and we want to improve our position so we need points for that.

“It doesn’t matter the opponent, doesn’t matter if it is a London derby – in fact, it’s the fourth in a row in the Premier League.

“It’s a Premier League match, three points are there to fight for and that’s what we’re going to try to do.”

Mourinho has a long history with Arsenal, having had a long rivalry with their former boss Arsene Wenger, while a new chapter has emerged since his arrival at Spurs in 2019.

He has won both of his north London derbies as Tottenham boss so far, both at home, but he insists he respects the Gunners and what they are trying to achieve.
