Jan Vertonghen available for Belgium friendly before North London Derby

Last season, Spurs finished ahead of Arsenal for the first time in 22 years as the Gunners finished 5th in the league while Spurs ended the season as runners-up.

Arsenal forward Danny Welbeck is stepping up his recovery ahead of his side's crunch clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday, the Daily Mail reports. "Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing".

Former Arsenal defender Lee Dixon insists Sanchez and Ozil would have been "shown the door" if they had played in the teams of his era, but Cech has defended his team-mates.

Arsenal are now 6th in the league and are four points behind their North London rivals who sit in third place.

"Success is ultimately winning trophies".

And Cech thinks Tottenham made huge strides when appointing the Argentine.

Cech, though is quick to identify Pochettino as the reason for Spurs breaking into the top four - and reaching the Champions League last 16.

"Last year was a odd season, we had more points but we finished outside of the top four". Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title.

"They've been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression". He was also the referee when they last beat their rivals in the Premier League, a 1-0 win at White Hart Lane in 2014. They have young, talented players - well balanced.

He added: "I still see Manchester United as the main title rivals for City this season, with Jose Mourinho's record being key, while he should have Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to come back when you really need those big-game players to make an impact".
