Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said he is unconcerned over the form of local rivals Tottenham.


The Gunners boss was asked what he thought about Arsenal’s derby opponents being so successful and claimed he did not care.


The Emirates Stadium side are currently nine points behind Spurs in the Barclays Premier League table but Wenger is only thinking about his own side’s performances.


“I don't look at Tottenham frankly,” he told reports at a press conference before their next league fixture.


“We look at the potential we have and then think that we gave absolutely everything to fulfil it. The attitude is right and I am confident that we can do that.


“Tottenham are a good side, they make points, but there is a long way to go.


“At the moment it still looks very open and there is no one who dominates this championship. Let's wait to see what happens at the end of the season.


“No matter who wins the league, whether it is us or somebody else, we will respect it and congratulate them. At the moment what is important for us is to come back and fight.


“We will fight with Man United, Man City, Chelsea, Liverpool, Newcastle - all these teams to go as far as we can.”


Wenger will be hoping his words bare true when he takes his side to the Liberty Stadium and a showdown with newly promoted Swansea City.
