Arsenal not competing with Tottenham: Cech

Mousa Dembele says he is ready to start the game against Arsenal at the weekend Mousa Dembele says he is ready to start the game against Arsenal at the weekend

Daniel Levy remains an extremely divisive character at Tottenham Hotspur.

That said, Cech perhaps does have a point that Spurs do need to convert their remarkable rise into winning honours. But look at this season so far, they are doing great, things are looking very promising for the future. We were under pressure the last couple of years, people talking about winning trophies, obviously we are disappointed not to have won the title but we won FA Cups.

With a steady improvement in their Premier League placings in recent years, Spurs have now established themselves as one of the strongest English clubs, placing third in 2016 and second in 2017, and are on course to challenge for the title this time around. Their last UEFA Champions League campaign prior to this season was very uninspiring and disappointing, but they've made some major noise this year. Success is ultimately winning trophies.

The focus will be squarely on Tottenham this weekend, however Arsenal's ambitions aren't only to finish ahead of Spurs.

One of those roles was for a secret project, which ended up being the 1989 Batman film starring Michael Keaton . But Kimmel didn't seem to be offended, praising the clip as " the best present [he's] ever gotten ".

The Gunners go into the north London derby four points and three places off their rivals and have not defeated Spurs in a Premier League game since March 2014.

Tottenham remain one of the most praised teams in the country for their style and approach to young players, but Cech has pointed out that they have won nothing yet.

They will move to the new stadium next year and I think the way they have managed the club, you can hear from anyone out there that this should be taken as an example.

He told Sky Sports: "The north London derby always tends to be an entertaining affair, with a lot of goals and a lot of talented players, and I think it has been more interesting over recent years with the teams being evenly matched. Although the season was not always what we wanted, we always had a trophy at the end of it".
