Spurs finished ahead of Arsenal in the Premier League for the first time during Arsene Wenger's tenure last season and could open up a seven-point gap over the Gunners with victory at the Emirates Stadium this weekend. Success is ultimately winning trophies.
Arsenal have been handed a major boost ahead of their clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday (18 November) with Danny Welbeck expected to be available after returning to full training during the worldwide break.
While Spurs have already booked a ticket for the round of 16 of the Champions League, Arsenal are sitting out European football's elite competition for the first time under Wenger and are already 12 points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City.
Parlour is a big fan of how they do things too, having previously praised Harry Kane, he is also a fan of Tottenham's style of play and ability to beat a high calibre of teams.
Arsene Wenger drops hint over his next job after Arsenal
Could you see him wearing the blue coat one day? "I am 35 years in this job [as a football manager]". I don't know [if] as a director, as a manager - as long as possible as a manager.
Spurs finished above Arsenal last season and while Giggs sees Pochettino as possessing the best squad at the moment, he still believes that they have some way to go before coming the true dominant force in North London. "Our target is to win the title and be successful during the season, not necessarily looking at what Tottenham are doing".
The first North London derby of the season kicks off on Saturday when Spurs travel to the Emirates in the first Premier League game after the worldwide break ends.
With their contracts running out in 2018 it has been suggested that Arsenal should allow both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to leave for the good of the team.
"With the quality of Alexis and Mesut you are always happy to have players like this in the team", he added.
