The Gunners ‘keeper taunts the club’s rivals as the race for the top four continues.
Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny has put pressure on rivals Tottenham as the two clubs battle for Champions League qualification in the Premier League.
The Gunners 0-1 win over QPR on Saturday has seen the club take a step further towards finishing in the top four.
However, Spurs and fellow Premier League rivals Chelsea have a game in hand over Arsene Wenger’s men and face each other in that match on Wednesday.
A win for Tottenham at Stamford Bridge would see Andre Villas Boas’ team and the Blues take Champions League qualification into their own hands – as the win at Manchester United for Chelsea has made them favourites to finish in the top four.
Yet Szczesny has added fuel to the fire by goading Spurs, claiming they are not good enough to qualify for top European football.
“If we win our next two games it will be enough as either Chelsea or Spurs will drop points when they play each other,” the ‘keeper was quoted on BBC Sport.
“Tottenham do not have enough quality.”
The comments from the 23-year-old should make AVB and his side even more keen to prove their critics wrong and beat Chelsea on Wednesday.
A late strike from Gareth Bale earned Spurs all three points against Southampton at the weekend, but another win at the Bridge is required if they want to avoid having to rely on Arsenal and Chelsea dropping points.
With Manchester United having already won the title, the fight for Champions League qualification could provide the drama and excitement this season.
