Arsene Wenger insists he is not paying attention to Tottenham’s fortunes and has backed his Arsenal side to secure a top-four finish this season.

The Gunners head into Saturday’s clash against Reading four points behind their fourth-placed local rivals, having played a game less than Spurs.

And Wenger, whose side have never failed to finish in the top four under the Frenchman, is confident of pipping Spurs to Champions League qualification this season.

“We know that if we are consistent, we will do it,” said Wenger. “We do not focus on Tottenham at all.

“We focus on the way we want to play and on our results. If we are consistent in the last nine games, we will do it.

“We just want to continue our form. Bayern and Swansea is a good inspiration to continue our run-in. There are nine games to go. We play five at home and four away.

“With the form we have shown, at Bayern and at Swansea, I think we have a very good chance to finish in the top four.”
