But Cech insists the title - and not just leapfrogging Tottenham - is still the Gunners' target.

Arsenal lifted the FA Cup in May, their third time winning the prestigious trophy in four years.

'There was always something missing but I would say the difference was when Pochettino came, ' the 35-year-old from Czech Republic added. Their last UEFA Champions League campaign prior to this season was very uninspiring and disappointing, but they've made some major noise this year. Two years ago when we finished above them we were disappointed because we didn't win the title.

The Gunners' form has been patchy, especially away from home, and it's hard not to draw some parallels between that and the fact their two star players, Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, have yet to make the kind of contribution you'd expect from players of that talent.
