Arsenal legends Ian Wright and Thierry Henry are holding out hope for a dramatic final day twist in the Premier League title race, but they both acknowledge Manchester City's strong position at the summit.

As the season reaches its climax, Pep Guardiola's team could secure their fourth consecutive title with a victory over West Ham. However, should City falter, Arsenal, who face Everton at the Emirates Stadium, could capitalise.

Wright, speaking on his podcast, Wrighty's House, expressed his longing for a City stumble: "There is a scenario where something like that could happen (City drop points). I'm trying to find a way to hang on to the hope!" he said.

"I'm so proud of this Arsenal team and I'm delighted they've taken it to the final day, these players deserve to have a slim, slim chance of something happening and that's what they've got. You never know and this is what is so great about football. I keep thinking of different scenarios where we might be able to be champions but it's hard to see past this light blue machine."

Wright and Henry, both Arsenal legends, are on tenterhooks about the Premier League title race. While Wright is keeping his fingers crossed, Henry, speaking to the BBC, shared his unease about Manchester City's track record in clinching titles:

"It's in their hands and I know how I would have been. I had that like, (growls). It's them, I've seen them doing it so many times to the (Sergio) Aguero moment, to the Tottenham game the other day to whatever.

"I've seen them not collapsing so it bothers me to think that they will. But the fan on the other side, the fan on the other side is like, 'Hey listen, you never know what can happen'.

"When the ref's going to blow the whistle, I hope that's not going to bring me back to reality because reality right now unfortunately for anyone else, is that only the City fans be cocky. Only the City fans can be talking."

"When you know you can't back it up, don't give that look. I give that look if I can back it up. We win? Oh. If we win and we have the trophy, oh don't come and interview me, I'm going to talk, I'm going to speak a lot but City is a special team. I just hope that they're not going to win."
