Talks of a power shift in North London finally makes some sense
If this season’s performance is measured as an indicator, the results show how far Tottenham have gone ahead of Arsenal.
The EPL today announced a series of changes to the TV and broadcasting schedules and one change reflected how Spurs have overtaken Arsenal.
Tottenham are second in the table and the only realistic challengers left to Chelsea in the title hunt. As for Arsenal, who lost 3-0 at Crystal Palace earlier in the week, they are down in sixth and facing a massive battle to end the campaign in the top four.
Spurs have overtaken their archrivals even in the entertainment brand due to their attractive brand of football and an optimistic squad filled with young blood.
Spurs, currently seven points behind, will hope to still be in a position to challenge by the time their home game against Manchester United, who are chasing an outside chance of making the top four, comes around – it has been switched to Sunday, May 14.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side then head to last term’s champions Leicester the following Thursday.
Before then, Spurs’ trip to Crystal Palace on April 26 will be screened instead of the original plan of showing Arsenal, now struggling to make the top four, at home to Leicester.
