Points do not come from heaven: Arsene Wenger

An injury-ravaged United team will be looking to leapfrog Manchester City and climb up to fourth place while the best Arsenal can do is come within two points of Jose Mourinho's men.

A 2-0 victory in the final north London derby at White Hart Lane in the Premier League on Sunday ensured Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs will finish above their arch-rivals Arsenal for the first time in 22 years.

Arsene Wenger said Arsenal have higher ambitions than to compare themselves to Spurs following defeat in the North London derby.

A quick scan of Chelsea's fixture list says everything you need to know: only a massive bottle job can cost them the title. "One loss (for them) and a win for us and the gap will just be a point", Vertonghen told Sky Sports.

"So the biggest disappointment for us is not to be in the fight, at this period of the season, for the championship". We fully deserved the victory in the end. "We couldn't afford to lose the game today we didn't score today, we didn't score at Palace or West Brom, we have to play more and create more than we did today".

It also meant they closed the gap on league leaders Chelsea to four points, with just four games remaining.

Ehlinger revealed that the department's funds were also stretched as it had to screen travelers and pregnant women for Zika virus. The measles virus commonly travels through the air where it can live for up to two hours, making it more contagious than the flu.

But with Manchester United visiting the Emirates next Sunday there is still an outside chance. Chelsea had beaten Tottenham in the FA Cup semi-final last Saturday and then Southampton in the league on Tuesday.

The match at White Hart Lane was the last derby between the two teams, as Tottenham move to Wembley next season. To win away against Everton is not easy and it was a great result but we have to continue in this way - go step by step.

"The players were really focused on the game and I think they didn't realise what happened at Everton".

"We were fantastic from the back all the way forward. He's not good enough for Arsenal, allegedly - meanwhile he dominates our midfield every time we play against him". At half-time I felt we were in the game and in the second half we wanted to improve, we wanted to play to win the game.

"We've already got seven points more than we finished with a year ago, and there's still four games to go".
