Jamie Carragher offers advice to Tottenham over Arsenal rivalry

Jamie Carragher tells Tottenham Hotspur to forget about rivalry with Arsenal

Jamie Carragher says Tottenham Hotspur need to forget about finishing ahead of Arsenal and focus on winning silverware.

The Lilywhites were left with a sour taste in their mouth after Sunday’s 5-1 defeat by Newcastle United on the final day of the Premier League season.

Tottenham’s embarrassing defeat meant that Arsenal hoisted themselves above their fierce north London rivals and into second place in the table.

The Gunners have now finished above Tottenham in the last 21 Premier League season despite what many consider to be a poor campaign for Arsenal.

However, former Liverpool centre-half Carragher had some words of advice for Mauricio Pochettino’s players ahead of the 2016/17 Premier League season.

“Forget this Arsenal thing. It is about winning titles and trophies. Of course they want to finish above Arsenal,” Carragher told Sky Sports.

Tottenham failed to win any of their last four Premier League games in an otherwise positive season for the north London side.
