London, Oct 31 (ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said if Tottenham wants to be mentioned in the same league as his club, then they will have to do a lot of hard work. ottenham head to the Emirates today looking for the first Premier League win over their bitter rivals Arsenal since 1999.
"Tottenham have had success historically - but now there is a lot of work to do. We've had 12 consecutive years in the Champions League so once they manage that they'll be similar to us. You can never say never. They have potential and got the fan base," Wenger said.
"What comes after that is the consistency of the achievement and at the moment we're in front. They were close to getting into the Champions League in 2006. Tottenham are always a threat. They're a big club and always invest big money into the team but we manage to get in front of them.
"Yet their manager Harry Redknapp has shown through his experience and intelligence that he can do it. He's done a good job as they were fighting relegation," The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying.
Wenger, who could land his 1,000th Premier League point as a manager if his team wins today, admitted: "If we don't win, I suffer. You suffer more when you think you have won a game. At West Ham the other day, I suffered. We ought to have won at Upton Park."
"Now we have to focus on this game and try to get the points. "We're in a strong position in all competitions and for us it's a good chance. Don't forget we've a game in hand on the top two in the Premier League," he added. (ANI)
