As the Premier League season draws to a close, Arsenal find themselves in a prime position to lift the trophy with just one match remaining for them.

Currently leading the table with 86 points, the Gunners are ahead of second-placed Manchester City with one point, but with one match in hand for City.

Arsenal returned to the top of the league with a 1-0 win against Manchester United on Sunday at Old Trafford, May 12 to ensure the Premier League title race will go down to the final day.

However, Manchester City, currently a point behind Arsenal, will reclaim the top spot if they win their game in hand against Tottenham on Tuesday, May 14.

With just a few matches left in the season, every result matters, and Arsenal will be looking to secure victory in their last game to ensure they maintain their position at the top of the table.

However, they also have to rely on other teams to do them favors, particularly their North London rivals, Tottenham Hotspur.

Can Tottenham do Arsenal a favor against Manchester City?

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have a long-standing rivalry in English football.

The two clubs have faced each other numerous times in various competitions, particularly in the Premier League with Manchester City often being one of the title contenders and Tottenham challenging for a top-four finish.

The trend is repeating itself this season with Tottenham battling for a top-four spot and Manchester City fighting tooth and nail to hijack the Premier League from Arsenal for the second time.

Tottenham Hotspur, who have not had the best season by their standards, recently showed signs of improvement in their last match, winning 2-1 against Burnley.

This has given Arsenal some hope that Spurs could potentially do them a favor in the title race by defeating Manchester City in their upcoming match.

If Tottenham were to secure a victory against Manchester City, it would greatly benefit Arsenal’s title chances as it would put them in a stronger position to lift the Premier League trophy.

However, it is important to note that Tottenham may not have as much motivation to help their rivals.

Pep Guardiola’s side are currently on a 21-game unbeaten Premier League run after humiliating Fulham 4-0.

In their last 18 head-to-head matches, Manchester City have won 10, Tottenham have won 6, and they have drawn 2 matches.

Ultimately, the outcome of the match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City will be crucial in determining Arsenal’s fate in the Premier League title race.

What’s next in the EPL action?

Arsenal’s victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, May 12 was well-earned.

The Gunners will now set their sights on their final Premier League match against Everton, hoping for another win to cap off their season and leave the rest to destiny.

On the other hand, Tottenham will host Manchester City on Tuesday, May 14 at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium with kick-off set at 8:00 pm.
