One team may decide the Premier League winner and its not one of the top three

Most pundits and so-called think that the Premier League title race is already over. They believe that Manchester City are two points clear of Arsenal for all practical purposes, despite Arsenal being ahead by one point. This is because Arsenal has played a game more than Man City; and most experts expect the Cityzens to win their game in hand and all their remaining games for that matter.

However, everyone is disregarding one big factor that could possibly switch the table – Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs will have a big say on where the Premier League title goes

Spurs will most likely have a significant impact on where the title goes this season. They play both City and Arsenal in the final few gameweeks; and to make it somewhat fair, both the games are at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

However, this fixture may tip the scales in the Gunner’s favour. So why would playing Tottenham serve Arsenal better than City?

Well, last season, Arsenal beat Spurs 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, proving that they can travel to their North London rivals and win. The Manchester club cannot claim that in the league.

Unlike Arsenal, City have struggled against Tottenham

Yes, City did beat Spurs in the FA Cup, but in the league, they have never even scored at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, let alone beat them.

For some reason, Spurs are City’s bogey team. They held the Citizens 3-3 at the Etihad earlier in this campaign. Season after season, they get the better of Pep Guardiola’s men. The same cannot be said for Arsenal. The Gunners do beat Tottenham in their own backyard.

Arsenal and Spurs face each other on Sunday, and if Arteta’s men do manage to win, they’ll temporarily extend their lead to four points.

Man City may also beat Tottenham later on, but if one of City and Arsenal are to slip up and possibly bottle the league, history shows it is more likely that it is City that drop points at Spurs, not Arsenal.
