Premier League trophy spotted at the Emirates 


The Premier League already have a trophy waiting at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday despite Manchester City’s two-point lead over Arsenal.

Pep Guardiola’s team put themselves within sight of a historic fourth successive triumph with their win at Tottenham on Tuesday, meaning they finish top of the table with a victory against West Ham.

But the Premier League have two identical trophies and one is at Arsenal’s stadium in case they upset the odds and defeat Everton while City drop points in the last West Ham match for David Moyes.

Premier League chief executive Richard Masters will be in north London while chair Alison Brittain will be in Manchester. Last year, when the title was won already by City, Masters was on hand to deliver the trophy.

There are also identical podiums and pyrotechnics at the Emirates and Etihad with the title race going to the final day for the 10th time since the start of the Premier League. The winners on the day will keep their trophy, while the other is retained by the Premier League and used through the next year.

Forty winners’ medals will be at each ground for the winners, with players featuring in five or more games getting presented with one.
