Tottenham not worried 'one bit' by Arsenal revival insists Scott Parker
Wednesday 14 March 2012
Scott Parker has declared faltering Tottenham are not worried "one bit" by Arsenal's recent resurgence.
The Gunners were staring at a 13-point gap to third-placed Spurs during last month's north London derby.
But they came storming back to win that game and have now taken maximum points in their last five Barclays Premier League matches.
In stark contrast, Tottenham have slumped to three successive league defeats to lead their arch-rivals by only one point.
The turnaround has sparked taunts from Arsenal's Wojciech Szczesny and Theo Walcott, but current England captain Parker said in the Daily Mirror: "I wouldn't say we're worried one bit.
"We're focused. We need to win football matches. That's it.
"We're in such a good league. Every week, you're looking. There's Arsenal, there's Chelsea. Ultimately, all we can do is keep performing and keep picking up results.
"We've got some good senior players here. William Gallas has been in this position before - he's won championships.
"We know what we need to do. We need to all pull together and see through the last remaining part of the season."
