Arsene Wenger: Tottenham ahead in the table but no power shift

Sunday's clash also marks Wenger's 50th north London derby at Arsenal, but the Frenchman insisted "sentiment" would not be an issue for him.

Despite long spells of possession, Arsenal were unable to craft out many opportunities as they looked to keep up their top-four chase. "We had the most of the game".

The Gunners haven't finished below Spurs in the table under Wenger and not since 1995 have Tottenham celebrated finishing higher than their neighbours. "But we have an opportunity to be in there only if we win our games".

Arsenal have enjoyed a mini revival in the last week with victory over Manchester City taking them to the FA Cup final and a narrow win over Leicester keeping their Champions League qualification hopes alive.

With time slipping away at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, the Arsenal manager threw on Danny Welbeck and Olivier Giroud to finish with four strikers. We know what is needed from us until the end of the season so on that front it's quite easy to prepare.

But perhaps Wenger believes they'll be goal because of his own team's defensive problems.

"We looked at him", he said when asked if he was aware of Alli. Infuriated, Leicester's Austria worldwide threw the ball into Sanchez's shoulder, only for the Chilean to fall to the ground clutching his face.

"I did not see where he was hit, but I saw on the first two attempts when Fuchs tries to throw the ball in, Alexis stood next to him", Wenger told Arsenal's official website. "I accept that", he said.

"He got the yellow card because he didn't respect the rules".

'I focus on Arsenal, what will happen to Spurs it's not for me to comment on that, ' he added.

"All the others, I think people will argue with that... but that doesn't mean Tottenham are going to win easily".

"We'd like to have attacked a bit more, but to lose in the manner that we did is very, very disappointing".
