Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech has said that Tottenham Hotspur must win a trophy to match Arsenal’s success, denying suggestions that there is a shift of power in north London.
For the first time, Tottenham finished ahead of Arsenal in 22 years when they claimed the second spot in the Premier League last season, while the Gunners missed out on a place in the Champions League by ending the campaign in fifth place.
- Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing. They've been there in the last few years so now I think they have to make sure they win something to show the progression. Success is ultimately winning trophies, said Cech.
However, Arsenal lifted their third FA Cup in the last four years with victory over champions Chelsea at Wembley in May, though, and ahead of this weekend's north London derby, Cech insists Spurs need to secure silverware before they can claim to have moved ahead of their rivals.
