Wenger: Ending Tottenham’s title bid is no motivation

Date published: Thursday 27th April 2017 8:25

Arsene Wenger has dismissed the claim that Arsenal will look to end Tottenham’s Premier League title bid in Sunday’s north London derby.

The two bitter rivals face off at the weekend in a game which has lasting consequences in their respective seasons.

Tottenham are four points behind Chelsea in the title race with five games remaining, while Arsenal remain in the hunt for a Champions League qualification place.

Arsenal travel to White Hart Lane on Sunday 14 points behind their neighbours, having played only one game fewer.

But after the 1-0 victory over Leicester on Wednesday, Arsenal are now four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, and have Champions League football in their sights once more.

“We play for us,” said the Gunners boss. “In life you work for your own achievements, not for others.

“What is most important is that we go there, try to win the game and focus on our performance. Not to go into any speculation on that.

“Sport is great. But you are never happy when others do badly and you do badly.

“You are happy when you do well.”
