In a surprising turn of events, Arsenal fans will find themselves in an unfamiliar position as they rally behind bitter rivals Tottenham in their upcoming clash against title-chasing Manchester City. This midweek fixture marks the last bout of action in the Premier League for the season, and all eyes will be on North London as the outcome of this match could have significant implications for the title race.

Tottenham’s Slim Hopes for a Top-Four Finish

Before their hard-fought 2-1 victory over Burnley last weekend, many had written off Tottenham due to their dismal four-game losing streak. However, this crucial win has revived their slim hopes of securing a top-four finish. To achieve this, they not only need Aston Villa to falter in their remaining fixtures but also must secure victories in their own last two games. Their first challenge comes in the form of a formidable Manchester City side.

City’s Pursuit of an Unprecedented Fourth Successive Premier League Crown

Manchester City, currently chasing an unprecedented fourth successive Premier League crown, will be determined to claim three points against Tottenham. Despite Tottenham’s recent home dominance in league head-to-heads, with four consecutive wins without conceding, City managed to conquer the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium earlier this season with a 1-0 victory in an FA Cup tie in January. A repeat of this result would make history for City, as it would be their fourth consecutive away win without conceding, a feat they have never achieved before in the top-flight.

Pep Guardiola, City’s manager, will undoubtedly prioritize securing the three points to extend their current 21-game unbeaten streak (17 wins, 4 draws) in the league and maintain their lead over Arsenal. City has established a reputation for finishing seasons strongly, but there is one exception to that rule – they haven’t won their final away game in any of the last three seasons, with a record of one draw and two losses.

Players to Watch

Dejan Kulusevski of Tottenham has consistently performed well against City, contributing five goals (3 goals, 2 assists) in four league games. His standout performance in the reverse fixture, a thrilling 3-3 draw, saw him score a goal and provide an assist. On the other side, Phil Foden of Manchester City also made an impact in that match, finding the back of the net. Foden will arrive at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium brimming with confidence, having scored his last four goals away from home.

Tottenham’s Home Form

Tottenham’s recent home form has been impressive, with no draws in their last 22 home games across all competitions. They have recorded 15 wins and 7 losses during this period, making their home ground a fortress that City will need to breach.

As the Premier League season nears its conclusion, this clash between Tottenham and Manchester City carries immense significance for the title race. Arsenal fans, despite their rivalry with Tottenham, will be eagerly supporting their North London counterparts in the hopes of derailing City’s pursuit of a fourth successive crown. The outcome of this match will undoubtedly shape the final stages of the Premier League season and provide football fans with yet another captivating chapter in the rich history of English football.
