It might still be mathematically possible for Arsenal to achieve our annual feat of finishing the season as the top placed Premier League club from north London, but Tottenham have certainly made it a lot less likely and they could pretty much complete the job of cancelling our St. Totteringham Day’s celebration today.
The spuds are at home to Watford in today’s early kick off and with the Hornets team ravaged by injury problems to 12 players as well as struggling for form, Mauricio Pochettino’s team are huge favourites to take all three points. That would put our north London rivals on 68 points with Arsenal back on 54.
Even with our two games in hand that would be a mountain too high for us to climb as even taking maximum points from the final nine games would leave the Gunners needing Spurs to drop eight from their final seven games.
Arsenal could really do with a favour from Watford and if they can get something from the game we could see another collapse from the spuds like at the end of last season. There is still another north London derby to consider as well so for now St. Totteringham’s Day is still a possibility. Will that still be true tomorrow?
