Kai Havertz: ‘I’m going to be the biggest fan of Tottenham ever’

Arsenal forward Kai Havertz has proclaimed he will be the ‘biggest fan’ of rivals Tottenham Hotspur in order for the Gunners to secure the Premier League title.

The title race will go to the final day of the season after Mikel Arteta’s side won 1-0 at Manchester United, moving a point clear of Manchester City in second.

However, City still have a game in hand to play, and that comes away at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Tuesday evening – a ground they have lost every Premier League encounter at without scoring.

Havertz, who came up with the winning assist for Leandro Trossard at Old Trafford, told Sky Sports that he will be hoping Arsenal’s north London rivals will do them a favour.

“I’m going to be the biggest fan of Tottenham ever!” he said. “Let’s hope for the best.

“We have to win every single game as City are always keeping the pressure on.

“It is so nice to be in the [title] race and every week you have to play at your best. When you do it, it feels even better. We have one game and we need the whole club behind us – anything is possible.”

Tottenham could be in need of a win against City to keep their faint hopes of Champions League qualification alive. A 2-1 win against Burnley on Saturday moved them to within four points of fourth-place Aston Villa, who host Liverpool on Monday night. If Villa lose that and Spurs then beat City, Ange Postecoglou’s side will go into the last day of the season only a point behind them.

If City draw at Tottenham, they will sit behind Arsenal on goal difference only, with the Gunners better by three in that regard. City host West Ham United on the final day, while Arsenal welcome Everton to the Emirates Stadium.
