MAURICIO POCHETTINO claims Chelsea are now Tottenham’s biggest rivals — not Arsenal.
Spurs face face unbeaten Blues tonight and Arsenal in next Sunday’s North London derby.
And boss Poch taunted the Gunners: “With rivalry you always look at teams above you.
“Chelsea, Arsenal and West Ham have been our biggest rivals.
“But that has changed because of our positions in the table.”
Spurs head into today’s Wembley clash a point behind third-placed Chelsea and three ahead of Arsenal, who go to Bournemouth tomorrow.
Pochettino added: “In the last few years Chelsea were always on the top and Arsenal, after 21 or 22 years, were below us.
“It’s a good sign because our fans want more every season.”
Meanwhile, Spurs have been joined by Arsenal in the hunt for £9million-rated left-winger Leandro Trossard.
The 23-year-old has been called into the Belgium squad after a superb start to the season for Genk.
Trossard’s 15 goals in 18 games have fired them to the top of the Pro League.
Monaco and Borussia Dortmund are also on the trail of hte former Under-21 international.
