As anticipation mounts for the clash between Ange Postecoglou's Arsenal and Pep Guardiola's City, the outcome of the match is poised to influence the title race heading into the final stretch of the campaign.

However, the ill-conceived decision to target City's hotel with fireworks backfired dramatically.

Amidst the rivalry between Arsenal and City, there was an unexpected show of solidarity from the Gunners' camp towards their North London rivals, Tottenham. 

Despite the historical animosity between the two clubs, Arsenal players and fans alike expressed their support for Tottenham ahead of their clash with City, recognizing the significance of the match in determining the title race.

In a rare display of unity, Arsenal midfielder Kai Havertz voiced his allegiance to Tottenham, stating, "I am going to be the biggest fan of Tottenham ever, we are all going to be. So let's hope for the best."

The sentiment was echoed by the Gunners' fanbase, although tempered with realism regarding Tottenham's chances. Former Arsenal midfielder Paul Merson even went as far as to pledge a tattoo of the Spurs emblem if they were to secure a positive result against City. 

"If Villa got beat tomorrow [Monday] by two or three, all of a sudden that goal difference changes a bit," he told Sky Sports. "If they go and get beat by one or two at Palace…

If they lost their next two games by two clear goals, I am not talking about the extraordinary here, that's four goals, then all of a sudden Tottenham...if they get a draw against City I am having a tattoo, and then they go and put six past Sheffield United.

"It all goes down to Tuesday, I am starting to want Arsenal not to win it now. It would be the little cockerel on the ball, but I will have it. I will have it."
