Manchester United’s 2-1 loss at White Hart Lane means that while Tottenham annoyingly win, the pressure on Arsenal has been eased.
- Tottenham guaranteed second
- Arsenal four points ahead of United with two matches each to play
- United loss hands Arsenal fifth
- Everton behind United by four points with one game left
Victor Wanyama and Harry Kane put Spurs 2-0 up before half-time, and while Wayne Rooney scored a consolation goal in the 71st minute, it wasn’t enough.
While no one likes to see Tottenham win apart from perhaps Tottenham fans, United’s loss means that they’re four points off Arsenal with two Premier League matches each to play. Therefore, unless the Gunners really screw things up, they’ve at least got European football in some form next season.
The Red Devils now have to travel to Southampton midweek and host Crystal Palace at the weekend.
Arsenal face relegated Sunderland on Tuesday and Everton on the final day. Both of their final games are at the Emirates.
While the Toffees are only four points behind Jose Mourinho’s team, they only have one fixture left to play. Therefore, United are guaranteed a top six finish.
