O’Hara jokes about cunning plan to deny Arsenal a first Premier League title

    Jamie O’Hara jokingly said that Tottenham should play Ryan Mason against Manchester City to stop Arsenal winning the title.

    Arsenal face Manchester United on Sunday night and should they win, they will go top and could be crowned champions a week later.

    Tuesday sees Spurs host City, who are currently first but just two points separate them and the Gunners with two left to play.

    Victory for the north London side would keep Pep Guardiola’s men second on the final day of the season, with the title out their hands.

    It would therefore spell the chance for Arsenal to go all the way and lift the coveted trophy, with some help from their bitter rivals.

    But former Spurs man O’Hara doesn’t want to see that happen, even if it boosts their hopes of a top four finish, and came up an idea on how to possibly help City win on Tuesday.

    “I’d play Ryan Mason in midfield,” he jokingly said on the GameDay Phone-In amid the thought of Spurs helping Arsenal to win the Premier League.

    Mason currently works as an assistant to Ange Postecoglou having retired from playing in 2018 due to a head injury.

    He is therefore ineligible to play but another Spurs fan had a different idea, with O’Hara himself coming into his thinking.

    Daz, a Tottenham fan, called into the show and humorously suggested: “I would actually have Jamie play for that game because I want the worst team to go out so we get absolutely slapped!

    “I do not want us to win, every player that’s above the age of 70 I would go and put in that side.”

    He added: “We’ll go out and beat them, I know it will happen because we’re that kind of team, but I don’t want it to happen, I want us to lose.”

    O’Hara further explained his reasoning on why Spurs winning and potentially getting Champions League football may not the best outcome.

    “I don’t know if this team is ready to be in the Champions League. I think he [Postecoglou] needs more next season, I think he still needs to build.

    “We’re still giving away goals, set-pieces are no good, I still think he needs another season. Get Champions League? Great, but we’re not going to win it are we?

    “We’re not going to win it, we’re going to be out but with the Europa League, we’ve got a chance.”
