Arsenal blow as Tottenham Hotspur lose Bissouma and Richarlison ahead of Manchester City game

Premier League title race set for dramatic finale as Arsenal and Man City fight till the death

Arsenal are hoping Tottenham Hotspur can do them a favour when they take on Manchester City at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday, but Spurs manager Ange Postecoglou has bad news for the Gunners and their fans.

The former Celtic boss announced this afternoon that Brazilian winger Richarlison will miss the rest of the season with his calf injury while Mali international midfielder Yves Bissouma has also been ruled out of the remainder of the campaign with a knee problem.

Arsenal and their fans would not normally be worried about such injury news coming from their North London rivals, but it is not good news for them given the situation of things.

The Gunners need Man City to drop points against Tottenham or West Ham United on the final day if they are to win their first league title since 2004, but Pep Guardiola and his side have been handed a massive boost ahead of their trip tomorrow.

Man City are favourites against Spurs given the dissimilar forms of both clubs at the moment, and things have only gotten worse for the North Londoners without two of their best players available for selection.

Arsenal currently lead the way at the top of the Premier League table with a point ahead of Sunday, when the campaign ends.

Man City are yet to win away against Spurs in the Premier League since 2018 and have only won once at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in six attempts in all competitions.

That was the only time they managed to score against Tottenham on the road and the North Londoners will be hoping their struggles continue on Tuesday.

However, Spurs will have to stop Man City from winning without Bissouma and Richarlison, and Arsenal will be hoping that happens.

All eyes are on Tottenham as they have plenty to play for in their remaining two games, and it is safe to say a huge game is on the cards as far as the title race goes.
