Cristian Stellini answers if Arsenal will celebrate with Tottenham Hotspur after Manchester City result

Tottenham Hotspur assistant manager Cristian Stellini says Spurs aren’t concerned with what Arsenal will make of their win against Manchester City on Sunday (5 February).

Spurs did the Gunners a huge favour by beating manager Pep Guardiola’s side 1-0 in north London. Arsenal suffered a blow of their own this weekend after losing to Everton.

They squandered the chance to go eight points clear at the top of the table. They now have that opportunity once again, as the Cityzens are five points adrift of manager Mikel Arteta’s side and have played one game more.

Of course, journalists were going to bring up this point after the full-time whistle at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. It is the only minuscule downside of the result today – that we may have aided Arsenal in their hunt for a first league title since 2004.

Not our worry

But Stellini has rightly responded that Tottenham are focused on themselves. He was asked if Arsenal will celebrate with Spurs tonight, to which the Italian coach responded (h/t Football.London):

“I don’t know. I am not Arteta. I think so but we are happy. We think about our squad, we think about our result, we are happy to win this game and it is not so important.”

What has to happen in the title race will happen. We aren’t a club that risks its own progress to bring down a rival – there can hardly be anything worse than that for a football team.

We have our own ambitions and goals for the campaign. A top-four finish is a must for us and the win against Manchester City takes us within a point of the top-four spots right now.

Of course, no Spurs fan would want to see Arsenal lift the Premier League trophy but we should rather be looking to compete for the title with them, instead of only trying to affect the race from the fringes.
