Pochettino: Tottenham would've taken their current position at start of season

The Premier League table going in the weekend's matches The Premier League table going in the weekend's matches

Just as Tottenham have wavered - losing their last two - Arsenal have rediscovered their form, winning five of their past six league games.

The Gunners are now ranked fourth in the Premier League with 56 points, four behind Spurs who are third in the standings. Painful losses on the road against Burnley and Chelsea pretty much ended their title chase as Liverpool and Manchester City opened up an eight-point gap at the top of the standings.

Pochettino has routinely hailed the incredible effort of his squad to stay in the title race as long as they have done, particularly in finding late winners to beat Fulham, Watford and Newcastle without the injured Harry Kane.

"Now it's about being calm".

In that time Spurs have been regulars in the Champions League, are on the verge of the quarter-finals this season and have challenged for Premier League titles.

Arsenal drew 1-1 against Spurs at Wembley in the early kick-off after Aaron Ramsey and Harry Kane scored for either side.

"The most important thing for me is if the player can be OK for tomorrow and has the desire to play".

"Everyone from the beginning of the season would have signed up to be in that position before playing on Saturday", added the Argentine.

He said: "We are fine in our way, being competitive and adapting our performance". People judge us and put pressure on us if we have not won a trophy.

Not to be outdone, Arsenal's resident terrier Lucas Torreira made a decision to leave his own mark on Tottenham's Danny Rose in the dying moments of the match.

Spurs were proving to be a match for their fierce rivals at the quarter-hour mark, but Arsenal went in front shortly afterwards after Kane had squandered a shooting chance at the other end.

The 30-year-old German returned to the starting lineup to pull the strings in midfield in Wednesday's 5-1 drubbing of Bournemouth and played the full 90 minutes, helping himself to a goal and assist.

A clearance was not dealt with by Davinson Sanchez on the halfway line with Lacazette being able to play Ramsey through on goal, and the Welshman held off pressure from Victor Wanyama to round Lloris and slot home into an empty net.

But both of those wins for the Gunners have come at the Emirates with Unai Emery's side having struggled away from home.
