Scott Parker insists Tottenham are not worried 'one bit' by the recent Premier League resurgence of north London rivals Arsenal.

The Gunners are now only one point behind Spurs in the table, having made up six points on Harry Redknapp's side in little over two weeks.

As Arsenal have strung together an impressive run of form, Spurs have endured the opposite; falling to three consecutive defeats for the first time under the stewardship of Redknapp.

The Spurs boss had outlined finishing above Arsenal as his priority this season but, while this looked likely a few weeks ago, the latter have the momentum with ten games remaining.

Parker, though, believes in the strengths of the players and White Hart Lane, and expects experienced pros like William Gallas to see the club through to a third-placed finish.

"I wouldn't say we're worried one bit," Parker told the Daily Mirror.

"We're focused. We need to win football matches. That's it.

"We're in such a good league. Every week you're looking. There's Arsenal. There's Chelsea. Ultimately all we can do is keep performing and keep picking up results.

"We've got some good senior players here. William Gallas has been in this position before - he's won championships.

"We know what we need to do. We need to all pull together and see through the last remaining part of the season."

Parker's focus, however, will be on the FA Cup this weekend as Spurs face Owen Coyle's Bolton for a place in the last four of the competition.
