Australian Ange Postecoglou and his Tottenham team face Manchester City on Wednesday morning (5am AEST) in a massive clash that could have huge implications on the Premier League title race.

Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are one point above City at the top of the table, but Pep Guardiola’s team crucially have a game in hand.

Arsenal, on 86 points, host Everton in their final match of the season on Sunday while City play West Ham at home.

It means if City win their final two games, they will secure an unprecedented fourth consecutive English top-flight title.

That also means should Tottenham win, it would hand their bitter north London rivals Arsenal a huge boost in their bid to win a first title in two decades.

But Tottenham are still in with a – very slim – chance of finishing in the top four and qualifying for Champions League football next season.

‘Absolutely meaningless’: Ange’s stunning take-down over PL claim he’ll ‘never understand’

Even if Spurs spring a huge surprise against City, they must still hope that fourth-placed Aston Villa fail to beat Crystal Palace on the final day.

If Villa lose that match, and Tottenham beat both City and Sheffield United, then Spurs will finish one point ahead and seal fourth place.

If Villa draw with Palace, then Spurs must win their final two games by a combined margin of NINE goals – not impossible, but certainly unlikely.

Ange Postecoglou has made it clear that he is fully focused on victory – and won’t be doing City any favours in an attempt to stop Arsenal’s title dream.

“Real success looks like trophies. Anything else in between, bragging rights, whatever, it is absolutely meaningless to me … we’ve got a game tomorrow we want to win,” he said in a passionate exchange with a journalist.

“If you go by social media there’s probably 99 per cent of Spurs supporters who don’t (want to win against City), if that’s your world but please don’t tell me that’s your world … we’ll need to have a counselling session if that’s your world,” he said.

“I understand rivalry — I was part of one of the biggest ones in the last couple of years in the world with Celtic and Rangers but I will never understand if somebody wants their own team to lose. That’s not what sport’s about.”
