Tottenham Hotspur fans will all be Brighton supporters for the next couple of hours, as they take on Arsenal in the 16:30 kick off.

Spurs may have thrown their own game away yesterday as they lost 1-0 to Bournemouth, but they still have a chance of securing a top-four spot today.

Tottenham could have sealed their fate in the early Saturday kick-off, and had control in the match against the Cherries before Heung Min Son and Juan Foyth both picked up red cards either side of the break.

Bournemouth went on the win the game late on against a nine-man Spurs, snatching any dream of the Lilywhites cementing Champions League football for next season.

However, as Man United drew away to Huddersfield this afternoon, the Red Devils are now mathematically out of the hunt for a top-four spot.

Chelsea overtook Spurs into third with a comfortable win over Watford, leaving just Arsenal to play this weekend.

A Gunners win would take it down to the last day of the season, but if Brighton manage to celebrate their Premier League survival with a draw or win, Tottenham will be all but guaranteed a top-four spot.

An Arsenal loss would put them too far behind to beat Spurs to fourth, and a draw today would leave it mathematically possible, but they would need a huge eight goal difference swing on the final day to overtake Tottenham.

Have something to tell us about this article?
