Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas disagrees with the view that Arsenal are in freefall.
Some have suggested that Tottenham will have no better chance of beating their arch rivals given the Gunners’ poor start to the season.
Wenger’s men conceded five against Reading in the Capital One Cup, lost to Norwich and drew against Fulham last week after missing a last minute penalty, leaving them 11 points off the top of the table.
Villas-Boas does not subscribe to the theory that Arsenal are in free fall under Wenger, however.
“Their position (in the league) is completely irrelevant,” he said.
“Last season they had a poor start and managed to clinch third spot by picking up points. You drop three points, you are condemned.
“This is the nature of the Premier League.”
