Mauricio Pochettino has dismissed Arsenal, with Tottenham aiming higher in the Premier League.

Tottenham beat Arsenal 1-0 on Saturday, moving up to fourth and opening up a seven-point gap on their bitter north London rivals.

Spurs featured high in the Winners and Losers column after Harry Kane headed the only goal at Wembley.

They have now beaten Arsenal and Manchester United and drawn with Liverpool in their last three Premier League games.

And Pochettino insists that both he and his players “don’t care” where Arsenal are in comparison to them.

“After United, Liverpool and now Arsenal, it has been one of the best periods since I’ve been at Tottenham,” said Pochettino.

“We don’t care if Arsenal are behind us – we are winning because we are building something special.

“Some performances and some results make us trust in the way we play. My idea against Juventus is to keep playing the same, to try and be a little bit braver if we can, but being clever because their level is one of the best.”
