Former Arsenal star Mesut Ozil has made a daring pledge that has captured the attention of football fans worldwide. As Arsenal sits precariously atop the league table, Ozil has promised to refrain from taunting Tottenham Hotspur if their arch-rivals can assist them by defeating Manchester City.

The Gunners currently hold a slender one-point lead over Manchester City, albeit having played one match more than Pep Guardiola’s side. With City set to face Tottenham in a crucial fixture, Arsenal’s fate hangs in the balance. Should City stumble, Arsenal’s dream of winning their first Premier League title in two decades could become a reality.

Ozil’s unexpected declaration, made via social media, has added fuel to the already fiery rivalry between the two North London clubs. The German midfielder expressed his support for Tottenham in a tweet, stating, “First time ever tonight: COME ON YOU SPURSSS!! If Tottenham don’t lose this game I will never make fun of them again… I promise.”

However, Tottenham’s dilemma extends beyond mere rivalry, as they find themselves embroiled in the race for a top-four finish and Champions League qualification. Manager Ange Postecoglou addressed the controversy surrounding fans’ conflicting desires, condemning the notion of supporting one’s own team’s defeat.

In a passionate statement during his pre-match press conference, Postecoglou emphasized the importance of sporting integrity and the pursuit of victory. 

“Real success looks like trophies. Anything else in between, bragging rights, whatever, it is absolutely meaningless to me,” he asserted. “Real success looks like trophies. Anything else in between, bragging rights, whatever, it is absolutely meaningless to me.

“What do you think is going to happen? What do you think we are going to do as a team, or any team on this planet? Aren’t we going to just try to win? It’s a simple premise. How that makes people feel, I’m not really fussed and I don’t really care.”
