KSI has promised to never sing one of the most famous chants in English football ever again if Manchester City drop points to Tottenham Hotspur. Ange Postecoglou will lock horns with Pep Guardiola in north London on Tuesday night as the Premier League title race nears its conclusion.

Arsenal leapfrogged the reigning champions to claim first place on Sunday afternoon, enjoying a 1-0 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford. While the Gunners have established a one point lead at the top of the table, Manchester City have a game in hand – which will be played against Spurs.

If the Lilywhites manage to win – or even draw – then Mikel Arteta's side will be given a major boost to their title chances going into the final weekend of the campaign. Despite the domino effects that may follow a victory for Tottenham, they have their own motive to defeat the treble winners.

Spurs trail Aston Villa in fourth by just four points with two games to spare. While Champions League qualification may be in their sights, KSI has pleaded with his rivals to help Arsenal win the Premier League.

Following the Gunners' win over the Red Devils at the weekend, the social media sensation made a promise. Taking to X, formerly known as Twitter, KSI tweeted: "I can’t believe I have to put my trust in Tottenham to try AT THE VERY LEAST, get a draw against Man City. Tottenham please, do us a solid on Tuesday and I promise I won’t do the “what do we think of Tottenham?” chant ever again."

Then, a few minutes later, the 30-year-old formalised his offer. Captioning a video of himself previously singing the X-rated chant, KSI wrote: "If Tottenham win or even draw against Man City next week, I promise to never do this chant ever again."

When Arsenal surrendered first place to Manchester City in the title race last season, KSI revealed that Erling Haaland rubbed salt into his wounds. Following the Gunners' defeat to Brighton in May 2023, the YouTuber told the MMA Hour: "It's so funny, man, literally today, Haaland messaged me and he just sent me a gif."

KSI added: "Well, I'm KSI, man. But yeah, I sent him a video, I'm not gonna say what the video was, but it's very funny now how well he's doing and how well Man City are doing. It's very funny and I'm very angry."
