If you haven’t already, it’s probably time to accept that Spurs are going to finish above Arsenal this season, which means no St Totteringham’s Day for the first time under Arsene Wenger.
- Arsenal are yet to play Spurs at White Hart Lane this season
- Spurs are 14 points ahead of Arsenal
- Arsenal are in 6th place in the table, Spurs are 2nd
All Spurs need to secure second place in the Premier League is to win four out of their seven remaining matches. 12 points.
Arsenal, however, would have to win every single one of their remaining matches to finish above Spurs. And that’s only if our north London rivals drop points.
Although they won’t beat Chelsea to the title, Spurs haven’t finished above Arsenal since the 1994/95 season when they ended up in seventh and the Gunners finished in 12th. That’s almost 22 years ago.
Of course, there’s a small chance of a slip up. Last season, for example, they only needed to draw against the newly relegated Newcastle to finish second but they even managed to mess that up.
However, as much as I hate to say it, it’s not looking like that’ll happen this season.
