Arsenal‘s club staff were seen rehearsing their Premier League trophy presentation, should the eventuality arise that they win the league on Sunday afternoon. 

The Gunners sit two points behind Manchester City in second place 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 set to be a thrilling final day. 

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

The clip shows that 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 be seen stood on a plinth on the stage, with an identical trophy making it’s way to Manchester, in the event that City do win the league. 

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

Members of the club can be seen shaking hands with one person on the stage, before another person can be seen presenting the players with a pretend medal. 

Around them, other members of the logistics team and camera operators stand watching on assessing the situaiton. 

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

The Spanish football manager played under the Scot during his time at Everton and was hopeful West Ham can take points away from City on Sunday. 

‘He [Moyes] has been instrumental in my career,’ Arteta said. 

‘Not just as a footballer, but as a person as well. If he could help us to fulfil our dream and my personal dream to win the Premier League, that will be unbelievable and he’ll always be in my memory, that’s for sure.’  

The Gunners will rue dropping points to Aston Villa during their 2-0 defeat on April 14, that seemingly saw them slip behind City in the title race. 

Arteta had previously stated that he hoped David Moyes' side could 'help the Gunners achieve their dream'

Yet, Arteta still has faith that his side can win the title heading into the final weekend. 

‘I do believe,’ the 42-year-old told BBC Sport earlier this week. 

‘We wanted to be in this position. We have earned the right to live a beautiful day in front of our people on Sunday with the hope and big opportunity that we can lift the trophy at the end of the match.

‘We have the possibility to live a beautiful day on Sunday where the dream is still alive and it’s still possible. It’s football; we have to live the moment.’
