Van Der Vaart – Arsenal ended our title hopes, but I’m sure we will still finish third

The Tottenham star Rafael Van Der Vaart saw his team destroyed by Arsenal on Sunday and has admitted that the Gunners have all but finished any remaining hope that Spurs could have overtaken Manchester City in the title race.

But he thinks that their seven point cushion will be more than enough to stop any of the chasing pack, including Arsenal, from overtaking them in the race for third.

Van Der Vaart said after the 5-2 defeat: “Of course you always have hope that we can win the title but Man City are winning their games so easily and, especially now that we’ve lost, maybe the title is over,”
