How Arsenal could win the Premier League in an unprecedented scenario, even if they finish level on points with Manchester City!

Could Arsenal still snatch a record fourth title from Manchester City on the final day of the season?

Could Arsenal still snatch a record fourth title from Manchester City on the final day of the season? The answer is Yes. We explain how below.

What is the scenario?

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal could see themselves being crowned Premier League champions at the expense of City on the final day if Pep Guardiola’s team get a draw in their match against West Ham.

Arsenal will face Everton at the Emirates on the final day and will need to secure a win.

There is even a scenario where the Gunners could be crowned champions on their head-to-head record against City!

How do they know this can happen? It’s exactly how they took the First Division title from Liverpool back in 1989.

The Current Situation Explained

Currently, Arteta’s side’s goal difference is +61, three better than City’s. However, the reigninig champions have scored more goals, 91 to the Gunners’ 89.

There are several ways both sides could finish the season with the same number of points, leaving the decision to the finer details.

Guardiola’s side needs to achieve one more point to make it level and three to take a two-point lead. 

Match Previews

The Citizen’s opponents on the final day have conceded 71 goals this season, the fourth-most in the league. 

They would need to score four goals to defeat David Moyes’s side, the same number of goals they have scored in the last six of their seven games.

Arsenal welcome Everton, a team who have conceded the fourth fewest goals in the top-flight, totalling 49. 

Only the top three teams have a better defensive record than Sean Dyche’s side.
