Richard Keys uses Arsenal to make a point about Tottenham's terrific progress

The television presenter has been discussing Spurs and the Gunners.

Richard Keys believes finishing above Arsenal would no longer do for Tottenham Hotspur, according to his personal blog.

Indeed, the north London side currently sit above their bitter rivals in the Premier League and are only two points off top.

And Keys wrote: "Spurs' season deserves some kind of reward as well. They've been terrific. A C Lge place and finishing above Arsenal - would that do? Of course not, they're serious contenders as well but I'd love to see Leicester win it."

Such has been Arsenal's meltdown during key moments this season, Tottenham no longer need to compare themselves to Arsene Wenger's men.

Spurs are three points clear of the Gunners and could remain ahead of them even if they pick up a couple of bad results this week.

There is no better time for Tottenham to host Arsenal, meanwhile, who have looked so fragile mentally this campaign it's a wonder they're still in the top four.

Arsenal have still managed to dig out higher finishes than Tottenham every year - even during some of their lowest situations. But this term is certainly the biggest chance of the tables turning.
