Arsenal goalkeeper Petr Cech: Spurs need trophy to show progress

Tottenham’s Mousa Dembele has fully recovered from a foot injury

Cech has insisted that finishing above Tottenham this year is not their priority.

Giggs added that he believes Tottenham will finish third in the Premier League this season, behind the two Manchester clubs, meaning that Spurs will finish above their bitter rivals Arsenal for the second season running.

"I don't think there is a power shift", Cech said.

And the former Chelsea goalkeeper praised Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, saying he had been "the big factor" in their improvement.

Many onlookers believe Mauricio Pochettino's side to be superior ahead of the first derby of the season on Saturday but Cech, who will start in goal at the Emirates, believes they must add some silverware to justify their recent resurgence.

"There is always one odd year where things can change".

Dodgers, Padres to play series in Mexico
Major League Baseball continues to spread its influence internationally by adding a series in Mexico next season. The Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres will play a three-game series at Monterrey, Mexico, from May 4-6.

Despite the one injury boost of Vertonghen's returning fitness, it looks like Spurs will have to do without his defensive partner in Toby Alderweireld due to the troublesome hamstring injury he picked up in the 3-1 win victory over Real Madrid in the Champions League.

Pochettino has a group of players that are all equally proficient and experienced, so any player lost through injury or suspension is replaced with a player that has confidence and a high level of expectation. The Czech goalkeeper also said that Spurs need to win a trophy if they want to prove how far they've come under Pochettino's time as manager.

'We are not competing against Tottenham Hotspur. "Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing".

Arsenal lifted the FA Cup in May, their third time winning the prestigious trophy in four years.

"Three years ago, when we finished above them, we were disappointed because we didn't win the title".

"Last year was a odd season, we had more points but we finished outside of the top four".
