Ex-Spurs man Ruddock claims he’ll believe to ‘leave London’ if Arsenal win the title

The ex-defender, 54, joked that he would believe to leave London altogether if the Gunners swooped to their first Premier League title in almost two decades.

Mikel Arteta’s side believe built up a five-point lead over City in a fine rush to the crown, with 12 games to recede including a trip to the Etihad Stadium.

“Pep [Guardiola], [Kevin] De Bruyne, please procure yourselves together, speak to each other,” he told talkSPORT. “Talk, don’t hold it all in, speak to each other, Pep – I need you – I need Man City. I’ve never needed Man City in my life, but I need them now.

“Don’t let Arsenal win the championship. Don’t let them win the Premier League, please! I’ll believe to recede!

“Listen Pep, you’re not only letting Man City down, you’re not only letting Man City’s fans down, you are letting every team in London down except Arsenal!

“Arsenal fans contemplate they invented football, no they didn’t! Pep, De Bruyne, please talk.”
