Mikel Arteta: Too 'early to label' Tottenham title contenders

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta admits Tottenham are doing things the 'right way' this season but believes it is too early to call them title contenders. 

Tottenham are currently on top of the table with 21 points after 10 games and will be hosting Arsenal in a Premier League clash on Sunday. The Gunners are 14th on the log, eight points behind 

Mikel Arteta believes Tottenham are doing things the "right way" this season but insists it is too early to tell whether they are title contenders or not. A loss for the Gunners in the north London derby will see them fall 14 points behind London rivals.

"I think it's very early in the season to see who is title contenders or not. But what you can say is what I said before is that they (Spurs) are in the position they are because they are doing things the right way," said Arteta ahead of the tie. 

"What we have to look at is where we will be after 38 games in the league. Now what is going to happen after Sunday, we want to be close and finish three points closer to them."

Arteta's men have struggled in front of the goal netting only 10 goals in the Premier League, only the current bottom three have fared worse.
