Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has added fuel to the fiery rivalry between North London clubs by suggesting that a Tottenham victory over Manchester City on Tuesday would epitomise the essence of all things “Spursy” and potentially tilt the Premier League title race in Arsenal’s favour.

With Arsenal perched just a point ahead of Manchester City after completing 37 of their 38 fixtures, the fate of the title now hinges on City’s remaining two matches, commencing with their crucial showdown at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Despite Tottenham’s aspirations for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification still flickering after rivals Aston Villa’s failure to secure points against Liverpool, Arsenal fans are relishing the possibility of Tottenham inadvertently aiding their title aspirations. The term “Spursy” has long been a facetious jab utilised by Arsenal supporters to describe any misfortune befalling their rivals.

Speaking to Premier League Productions, Wright, a former league winner with Arsenal in 1998, expressed his anticipation at the potential narrative twist, emphasising the irony of Tottenham potentially benefiting Arsenal while falling short of their own objectives.

Wright stated, “It would be the Spursiest, the most unbelievably Spursy thing for them to beat Man City by accident… It would be the greatest outcome for me (for Spurs to win and miss out on the Champions League).”

He further dissected Tottenham’s season, acknowledging their resilience amidst adversity, but highlighting the tantalising prospect of them aiding Arsenal’s cause despite their own ambitions.

However, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou rebuffed the notion of fans rooting for their own team’s failure, dismissing such sentiments as contrary to the spirit of sport. Postecoglou emphasised his commitment to bringing success to the club and reiterated that the primary goal for Tottenham should be achieving victory and securing trophies, rather than indulging in schadenfreude.
