Arsenal's hopes of winning the Premier League title this season rest heavily on North London rivals Tottenham this week. Spurs take on Manchester City on Tuesday night with the opportunity to put the title in the Gunners' hands ahead of the final day of the season.

Mikel Arteta's men kept their dreams of ending their 20-year wait of becoming champions of England alive with a 1-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday. Man City continued their yearly end-of-season perfection, though, on Saturday with a 4-0 thrashing of Fulham.

Unfortunately for the Gunners, the destiny of the Premier League title is out of their hands. That can, however, change depending on the outcome of Tuesday night's clash between Spurs and City.

Should Ange Postecoglou's men win, Arsenal will go into their game with Everton with one hand on the title. A draw at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium will also benefit the Gunners but victory for Pep Guardiola's side will see them go two points clear.

City host West Ham on the final day and will hope they can control their own destiny. Many have theories that Spurs may rollover against the Citizens to stop their rivals from winning the league - something Postecoglou has played down.

Fortunately for Arsenal, Tottenham still have something to play for in their race for Champions League football. Spurs currently sit five points behind Aston Villa but with two games remaining can still finish in the top four.

Villa failed to confirm their place in the Champions League on Monday night after drawing 3-3 with Liverpool at Villa Park. They were 3-1 down but two goals by Jhon Duran meant Tottenham have to beat Man City.

Failure to beat City will end their hopes of bringing Champions League football to the club next season meaning they have more than enough reason to help their north London rivals.
