The bookmakers still believe Tottenham will beat us to second spot in the Premier League (via The Evening Standard), and with Mauricio Pochettino’s side currently three points ahead of us it’s easy to see why.
There’s still every chance that we could pip them at the post though, with Chelsea’s comeback against them this Monday night potentially damaging more than just their confidence heading into the last two games.
After the season we’ve had, most Arsenal fans would obviously be thrilled with third spot. Guaranteed Champions League next season and finishing ahead of Manchester City; not at all what we were hoping for at the start of the season, but not a bad result all things considered.
Beating Spurs to second and celebrating St Totteringham’s day (via The Guardian) on the last day of the season would be a huge bonus though, and would keep up our record of finishing above Tottenham every single season since Arsene Wenger took over.

A few things have to happen in order for us to get ahead of our north London rivals though, starting with us beating Manchester City. Both Southampton and Newcastle will have to do us some kind of favour over the next two games too, so it’s definitely an outside chance. If their draw with Chelsea has a real negative impact on their confidence and form though, we could still manage it.
If we do make second, it definitely won’t make our season look quite as bad as it has been. Arsene Wenger will still be under a huge amount of pressure from the fans, but as he insists he’ll be stay at least one more season (via Sky Sports) it will make his job a whole lot easier.

While we’re all disappointed in the team’s performance this season, we need to get behind the boys ahead of the new campaign. We are also likely to have some amazing odds next season to win the Premier League, simply because no one believes we can.
