Bookies predict no St Totteringham’s Day after Arsenal lose and Spurs win

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris puts his arm round Arsenal's Laurent Koscielny after the Premier League match at the Emirates Stadium, London.

Arsenal supporters won’t be celebrating St Totteringham’s Day according to bet365

It’s been a long time since Tottenham finished above Arsenal in the Premier League table. To be precise, the 1994/5 season saw Spurs achieve this although the 2016/17 campaign is shaping up very nicely for the white half of north London.

Despite the injury to Harry Kane, Tottenham were able to beat Southampton 2-1 on Sunday and they are now nine points clear of the Gunners having played an extra game.

Bet365 go 1/8 about Spurs finishing in the top four this season and it appears as though they will definitely be playing Champions League football next term, while Arsenal only have an outside chance of doing this.

Bet365 now offer 3/1 about Arsenal claiming a top four berth, with Arsene Wenger’s side losing 3-1 at West Brom on Saturday which has intensified speculation regarding the future of their manager.

Arsenal supporters have long been celebrating St Totteringham’s Day which is the day that Spurs can no longer finish above the Gunners in that particular season.

It usually occurs some time in March or April, although it appears as though Tottenham will create a day of their own to celebrate the moment when Arsenal can’t get near them in the table.

The bookies also expect Manchester City and Liverpool to qualify for the Champions League next season. City are 1/7 to finish in the top four and Liverpool are a 4/9 chance following a 1-1 draw at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester United are a 13/8 poke to land a top four spot following their 3-1 victory over Middlesbrough.
