Piers Morgan has given Tottenham Hotspur some words of encouragement ahead of their clash against Manchester City. Ange Postecoglou and Pep Guardiola will lock horns in north London on Tuesday evening as both sides look to climb the Premier League table.

Arsenal leapfrogged the reigning champions at the weekend with 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 prove pivotal in the title race.

Even if Spurs only manage to hold the treble winners to a draw, Mikel Arteta's side will be given a huge boost to their chances of winning the English top flight for the first time in 20 years. However, while the Lilywhites could essentially serve Arsenal the title on a silver platter, the race for the top four is far from over.

Tottenham must defeat Manchester City to keep their faltering hopes of Champions League qualification alive. Postecoglou's side trail Aston Villa in fourth by five points with two games to spare.

Nevertheless, ahead of Tuesday night's clash, Morgan has taken to X, formerly known as Twitter, to wish his rivals good luck. He wrote: "So, with that Villa draw, Spurs MUST beat City tomorrow night or they won’t have any chance of qualifying for the Champions League. Perfect scenario for Arsenal to win the League. Come on @SpursOfficial - you can do this, you useless wastrels."

Controversially, Kai Havertz has already taken a similar stance, revealing that he'll be the 'biggest' Tottenham fan on Tuesday evening. Speaking to reporters following Arsenal's win over Manchester United, the former Chelsea ace said: "I'm going to be the biggest fan of Tottenham ever on Tuesday. We all are going to be! So let's hope for the best."

Arteta remained coy, however, and insisted that the Gunners still have work to do on the final day of the season regardless of the Spurs result. The Spaniard said: "My experience in this league in the last 20 years is that any team can beat any team.

"And I lived it in various scenarios on the last day when a lot of teams had necessities, although not much, and the honesty and respect that everybody puts in the games is phenomenal. We know we need a result.

"We need to do our own thing still in the last game but today we want to really knock that door and open that box of dreams to leave the last and the final day of the season in front of our people with the opportunity to win the Premier League.

"And that's something that we're going to do together. And I'm so pleased that we're going to be with these players and staff."
