Mesut Ozil says Arsenal are happy to be above Tottenham as the Premier League race heats up.
The Gunners topped Newcastle on Monday to leap over their London rivals into third place.
Spurs currently sit third in the league, having been seen as a competitor for Liverpool and Manchester City in the title race earlier this year.
But now Arsenal are above their fierce rivals, and Ozil is more than happy to be in pole position for a Champions League spot heading into the final months of the season.
"Our aim is to get into the top four. Of course we’re happy that we’re in front of Tottenham. It’s always a big competition with them," Ozil said following Monday's win.
"If we play like today, we have a few more games in front of us and we want to win them. We want to take all the points to get into the top four at the end of the season."
