A key figure from within the Premier League is set to attend Arsenal vs Everton on Sunday, rather than risk watching Manchester City lift their fourth consecutive title, in a snub to the treble holders.

The Premier League’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Richard Masters, has decided to attend Arsenal vs Everton on the final day of the season this Sunday, rather than Manchester City’s game at home to West Ham.

While the exact reason for this decision is currently unclear, fans have speculated that Masters does not want to risk the prospect of awarding the Premier League trophy to Manchester City while their 115 charges loom.

Masters has recently spoken about the charges against the Cityzens, and said: “We can’t comment on the case, the date has been set, and the case will resolve itself in the near future.”

In his absence, The Athletic have reported that the Premier League chair, Alison Brittain, will instead be present at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday, and ready to present the trophy to Pep Guardiola’s side if they clinch the title.


Ahead of the final day, Arsenal know that they must beat Everton to stand any chance of lifting the Premier League title, but will also be reliant on Manchester City dropping points at home to West Ham.

News of the Premier League CEO delivering a snub to Manchester City in favour of Arsenal has been met with mixed reactions on social media, with many fans criticising the time taken for the Cityzens’ charges to be dealt with.
