Arsenal are seen REHEARSING their Premier League trophy presentation… in the eventuality that Arsenal snatch the title from Man City. WATCH

VIA DAILY MAIL:

Arsenal‘s club staff were seen rehearsing their Premier League trophy presentation should the eventuality arise that the north London outfit win their first league since 2004 on Sunday afternoon. 

The Gunners sit two points behind Manchester City, second in the standings and take on Everton at the Emirates Stadium tomorrow afternoon. 

Pep Guardiola‘s side, meanwhile, are on the cusp of claiming their fourth consecutive league title and will be crowned champions should they claim victory tomorrow against West Ham

Yet, should City drop points at the Etihad Stadium tomorrow and Arsenal claim victory, their superior goal difference would mean that Mikel Arteta‘s side will clinch their first Premier League title since 2004. And it seems every eventuality is being catered for at the Emirates ahead of what is could be a thrilling final day. 

A video has now emerged online showing Arsenal’s staff practicising the trophy presentation. 

The club had laid banners reading ‘Premier League champions’ all over the pitch, while a stage emblazoned with the Premier League logo, had been erected in the centre circle. 

The Premier League trophy can also be seen stood on a plinth on the stage. An identical trophy will in Manchester this weekend in the event that City go on to win the league instead. 

Staff can be seen queueing and walking on to the stage, just as the players would do to collect their medals. 

Members of the club shook hands with each other, with one person appearing to present those walking on to the stage with pretend medals.

An expert engraver will be on hand at each stadium to etch the required team’s name onto the trophy, while a set of 40 medals will be ready to be presented at each ground.  

Should Arsenal go on to win the league, an open-top bus parade will take place through the streets of Islington on Monday, May 20.  

Ahead of the final day of the season, Arteta had pleaded with David Moyes to help his Arsenal side clinch their first league title in 20 years.
