Why Arsenal winning the FA Cup this season would be terrible for Tottenham


Out of nowhere, both Arsenal and Tottenham are experiencing improved form.

It would have been even better for the Gunners had they not lost to Spurs in the north London derby.

A shock win over Premier League champions Liverpool, with a weakened team, has perhaps give Mikel Arteta and his men a big confidence boost ahead of their FA Cup semi-final on Saturday night.

They will battle Manchester City at Wembley – live on talkSPORT – a match they may not have relished, especially given their calamitous rain-soaked defeat in their first game after the restart.

Back then a blundering David Luiz cameo saw them fall to a 3-0 defeat but now they might just feel there is chance it could be a different story.

Their 3-4-3 formations is bearing some fruit, Southampton, Sheffield United, and Wolves have also been beaten, while they led Leicester prior to Eddie Nketiah’s red card.

Meanwhile, stars like Emiliano Martinez, Kieran Tierney, Granit Xhaka, Bukayo Saka, and Dani Ceballos are all impressing.

If they could claim the scalp of City it could also have another ramification which their supporters would love.

If Arsenal can beat City and win in the FA Cup final, where they would meet either Manchester United or Chelsea, they would secure themselves a Europa League berth.

That is great in itself and would also give them an extra £40m to boost their finances.

But it, with the Premier League as it is right now, would stop seventh place Tottenham qualifying for the same competition, meaning no Europe and impacting their ability to make transfers significantly.

If the Gunners win it, only teams in fifth and six will qualify through their league position.

A trophy, European qualification, and all at the expense of Spurs – now the hard part is doing it.
