Tottenham boss Conte: Top 4 finish n England like winning a trophy

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte says a top four finish is as good as a trophy in England.

Spurs can reduce the gap to fourth-placed Arsenal to a point with a win in tomorrow's crunch north London derby, but the Gunners would seal Champions League football at the home of their rivals with a famous victory.

Conte told the London Evening Standard: "To take a place in the Champions League in England is very, very difficult and this season [Manchester] United missed qualification.

"Otherwise, in my mind, you start with the four teams at the top. At the start, the race for the Champions League seems close, four teams - City, Liverpool, United and Chelsea.

“Then during the season, someone can be in trouble and you have to be ready to stay there. It happened this season. We are trying with Arsenal to find a position in the Champions League but in England, it's like winning a title in another country. It is a big achievement."
