The Premier League season resumed on Wednesday as Aston Villa hosted Sheffield United and Tottenham’s North London rivals, Arsenal, travelled to the Etihad Stadium to take on Manchester City.
Both games were important for Tottenham’s hopes of securing Champions League qualification, with Sheffield United and Arsenal both still in with a chance of a top-four finish.
It ended up being a good day for the Lilywhites when both the Gunners as well as the Blades failed to pick up victories in what were their games in hand.
While Chris Wilder side were held to a 0-0 draw at Villa Park, Arsenal were brushed aside 3-0 by Pep Guardiola’s men when two mistakes from David Luiz either side of half time gave the home side an unassailable lead before Phil Foden put the icing on the cake late on.
Former Spurs midfielder Micky Hazard could not resist taking a dig at the old enemy after they were outclassed by City on Wednesday evening.
Have to say this is the loudest I’ve heard the gooner fans 😂😂😂

We certainly have our work cut out if we are going to make up the seven points deficit we have with Chelsea. We barely have any margin for error in the final nine games of the season if we want to secure a top-four finish.
However, looking at how bad the Gooners defended on Wednesday, it does seem like we are guaranteed to finish about Arsenal for the fourth season in a row.
