Like most of us, Aaron Ramsey isn’t having a great time watching how well Spurs are playing this season and is still optimistic of finishing above them.

There’s only one match left of this travesty of a season. Arsenal sit in third, two points behind Spurs in second. Our north London rivals play away to the newly relegated Newcastle, while we play at home to the slightly-less-newly relegated Aston Villa. If the Magpies fail to win… well absolutely nothing will change for them because they’ve already been demoted to the Championship. But it would do us a favour.

It’s not looking good, is it?

Speaking ahead of our match against bottom of the table Villa, Rambo admitted that he has to give Spurs credit, as awful as it is.

“Obviously it’s not nice seeing them above us but I have to say they’ve done well this season as well,” the Welshman said.

“But it’s not over yet, we have one game left and hopefully Newcastle can do us a favour there and we finish the job off at home.

“It’s in their hands but hopefully we’ll have a bit of luck.”

Spurs came dangerously close to winning the title this season and, with Leicester securing it when the Lilywhites drew away to Chelsea, the next best accomplishment will be finishing above us for the first time since Arsene Wenger has been in charge. Of course they’re going to celebrate it like it’s winning a trophy, why would they not?
