Tottenham forward Dejan Kulusevski once revealed that Arsenal was his favourite football club before joining north London rivals Tottenham. Arsenal’s hopes of clinching their first domestic title in two decades hinge on the outcome of Tottenham’s clash with Manchester City this week. 

With just a single point separating Arsenal from reigning champions Manchester City, the Gunners are poised to seize the title if City falter against Tottenham. Despite having played one game less than Arsenal, Pep Guardiola’s side could surrender the top spot with a defeat, paving the way for Arsenal to claim glory if they secure a win against Everton.

The prospect of Tottenham potentially aiding Arsenal’s title bid has ignited a debate within the Spurs’ fanbase. While some advocate for prioritising their own Champions League aspirations over thwarting Arsenal, others remain steadfast in their support for their team’s victory.

Kulusevski’s involvement in the crucial fixture against Manchester City adds a layer of intrigue, given his past admiration for Arsenal. During his loan spell at Parma, the Swedish winger openly professed his affinity for the Gunners, citing admiration for the club’s ethos, players, and style of play. Even after joining Tottenham from Juventus, Kulusevski hinted at a desire to play for a certain unnamed team, widely speculated to be Arsenal.


While on loan at Parma earlier in his career he told the Swedish Lundh podcast: “My favourite team is Arsenal because I like everything about the club, the city, the players and the way they play football.”

However, amidst the fervour of rivalry, Tottenham manager Ange Postecoglou condemned the notion of wishing for one’s own team’s defeat. Drawing from his experience in one of football’s fiercest rivalries between Celtic and Rangers, Postecoglou emphasised the essence of sportsmanship and the love for the game, dismissing any suggestion of sacrificing victory for the sake of rivalry.

“I understand rivalry. I was part of one of the biggest ones in the world in the last couple of years with Celtic and Rangers.

“But I’ve never, and will never, understand if someone wants their own team to lose. That’s not what sport is about. It’s not what I love about the game.”
