What a difference a win can make… A handful of Arsenal supporters are confident that the team can end Tottenham Hotspur’s Premier League title hopes after they sealed victory over Leicester City.
The Gunners look on course to finish below their North London rivals for the first time in 22 years as they currently reside 14 points below in sixth place.
Arsenal still have a chance of claiming a top-four spot as they sit four points adrift of Manchester City with six games left to play.
It is not the way Arsenal fans would have wanted the season to go, but they are hopeful that Spurs can taste some of their misery when the two clubs go head to head at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
It has been a difficult run for the Gunners having lost half of their las 10 league games, but they have managed to recover from a shock 3-0 defeat to Crystal Palace.
After beating Middlesbrough 2-1 and ousting Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals, Arsene Wenger’s side earned a 1-0 win over Leicester at the Emirates on Wednesday night.
They had a bit of luck as it was an own goal from Robert Huth that separated the sides, but some of the Arsenal following are feeling confident heading into the derby this weekend.
Next game.. stop Spurs for title hope! #afc

Far from convincing but delighted with the win all the same. Three consecutive wins now, nice momentum ahead of the NLD on Sunday #AFC

Wasn't the best of games but the 3 points is all that matters. Need to keep winning. Spurs need to be brought back down to earth next #AFC
