There is only one thing better than Arsenal winning and that’s Spurs making fools of themselves once again.

Just a few weeks ago they were a massive 10 points ahead of Arsenal and we looked set for another year of humiliation in finishing below them.

But things change quickly in football and if it wasn’t for Anthony Taylor’s incompetence or Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang taking his eye off Lloris, Arsenal would now be two points ahead of Spurs in third place.

I spend a lot of time on this site and Twitter moaning about the media’s coverage of football, mostly in regards to how they suck up to Spurs while slating everybody else.

So, I was eagerly awaiting Monday morning’s papers, especially the Daily Fail and Telegraph which usually are so reliable when it comes to being absurd.

Imagine, then, my surprise, when one of them produced this hilarity:

Daily Mail, 11 March 2019

I’m not really sure you need me to add anything else to this, do you?

If you do, there are eight games remaining for both sides.

Arsenal’s remaining games:

  • Newcastle (h)
  • Everton (a)
  • Watford (a)
  • Crystal Palace (h)
  • Leicester City (a)
  • Brighton (h)
  • Burnley (a)
  • Wolves (a) (fixture date still tbc)

Spurs’ remaining games:

  • Liverpool (a)
  • Brighton (h)
  • Huddersfield (h)
  • Manchester City (a)
  • West Ham (h)
  • Bournemouth (a)
  • Everton (h)
  • Crystal Palace (h) (tbc)

As you can see from those lists, Arsenal only have three home games remaining while Spurs have five, but they also have to go to Liverpool and City.

It is, as they say, going to be tense as a pig.
