Tottenham midfielder Victor Wanyama has eyes on bigger prizes after Arsenal North London Derby win

James Benge

Victor Wanyama believes Tottenham have “bigger things” on their radar than overcoming London rivals Arsenal as they eye a grandstand finish to their season.

Spurs assured themselves of a first league finish above Arsenal since 1995 on Sunday as they ran out 2-0 winners over Arsene Wenger’s side in the final North London Derby at White Hart Lane.

Wanyama dominated midfield as Tottenham utterly outclassed their local rivals but, with Chelsea only four points off with as many games remaining, the 25-year-old says that outdoing Arsenal should not be the limit of Spurs’ ambitions.

“I think it is good but there are bigger things to look at,” he told Sky Sports. “That is just us getting better and having a better season than last.

“Hopefully, we will be finishing strong and achieving a nice thing as well.”

Tottenham are the league’s form team and a run of nine straight wins has seen them emerge as the only viable contender to leaders Chelsea for the Premier League title.

However with four games to go Antonio Conte’s Blues remain strong favourites, not least because their run-in is significantly more favourable than Spurs’.

Mauricio Pochettino’s men go to West Ham on Friday and still have to host Manchester United in White Hart Lane’s final game, whilst Chelsea play only one team in the top half.

Wanyama admitted that Tottenham’s task would not be an easy one in the final weeks of the season.“They [Chelsea] are where they are and we are trying to give them pressure.

“You never know.

“We hope to continue the winning streak and see what happens.

“All the games remaining are very tough. West Ham are a good side so it will be a big task but hopefully we can work as we have been and get the maximum points.”
