Arsenal boss Wenger targeting Champions League spot by finishing above Tottenham

Arsene Wenger has denied that Arsenal’s ambition this season is only to finish above Tottenham Hotspur, but the Gunners manager added that he wants to finish above his north London rivals to help guarantee a place in the Champions League, the Daily Mirror has reported.

The two sides meet for the first time this season on Saturday and go into the match separated by a place and a point. Tottenham, visitors to the Emirates Stadium this weekend, are seventh with 17 points while Arsenal are eighth with 16. Tottenham were defeated in their last away match, at Manchester City, while Arsenal could only draw their previous home outing, against Fulham.


Wenger however does not want to climb above Spurs for reasons of bragging rights alone. The long-serving boss acknowledged that overtaking Tottenham is important to some supporters but he emphasised that the long-term goal of the season is to finish above more teams than Tottenham alone.


He said: “Our main target is to finish at least in the top four. That's not only Tottenham but other teams who can be in front of us. To be in the top four it's important to beat Tottenham and it has well an emotional impact, but the target of the season is not to finish above Tottenham, it's to finish in the top four.
