Arsenal told the 'stumbling block' that can still cost Manchester City Premier League title

Phil Foden looks on

There may be hope in the Premier League title race for Arsenal yet says a nervous Shay Given, despite Manchester City's comfortable victory at Fulham.

Pep Guardiola's men travelled down to the capital for a Saturday lunchtime kickabout with Marco Silva's Fulham - one from which they came away 4-0 winners. After a month of back-and-forth it finally brought City level on matches played with the Gunners, though not with the result Mikel Arteta and Co. had hoped for.

City moved up to first with the win, two points ahead of Arsenal. They also managed to shave a goal difference between the two rivals from six to just two.

The Gunners have a chance to respond in their penultimate match of the season at Old Trafford, but then Guardiola's men have their official game in hand on Tuesday evening against Tottenham - all building up to a potential final-day decider for the Premier League trophy's destination.

Arsenal could win both of their remaining games but it would not mean anything if City do the same. The latter have come out on top in this scenario many a time, but there are evidently still nerves for those linked to the club.

"They had three cup finals before today, now after today it is two cup finals of course," said former Etihad Stadium shot-stopper Given told Premier League Productions. "Tottenham, for me, is still a big stumbling block.

"I know they've lost the last four but it is still a big question mark because City haven't got a great record at Tottenham. I know [they won there in the FA Cup this season] but it was one goal, it was a [Guglielmo] Vicario mistake and it wasn't convincing.

"It wasn't the Man City we know and for some reason in some games, in some stadiums, you always struggle there for some reason. That stadium is the White Hart Lane, or whatever it is called now."

The interesting facet of Given's point is if Spurs were to take points on Tuesday, it would be to the benefit of their great rivals.
