Scott Parker insists Tottenham will hold their nerve and keep hold of third place.

The wobble sparked taunts from Gunners keeper Wojciech Szczesny and team-mate Theo Walcott, who said his side are coming to get their rivals from down the Seven Sisters Road.

But Spurs midfielder Parker told the Daily Mirror: "I wouldn't say we're worried one bit.

"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."
