Tottenham caretaker boss Mason not obsessing about Arsenal

Tottenham caretaker boss Ryan Mason insists they're not worried about Arsenal catching them.

Mason insists Spurs are looking up instead of over their shoulders at Arsenal.

Tottenham's interim boss was responding to Mikel Arteta's revelation earlier this week that finishing below their north London rivals for a fifth season in a row remains a huge incentive for the Gunners.

“I'm sure it is for them," said Mason whose men host Wolves on Sunday.

“I know the importance when you represent this football club of finishing above them," he added. “Of course I'm a Tottenham man. I know that.

“We can't think about that. We have to think about winning our games and the priority for us is this weekend. Of course I know what it means to the fans to finish above them."
