Arsenal fans set off FIREWORKS outside Man City’s team hotel the night before their crucial clash with Tottenham – but Pep Guardiola’s men weren’t even there!


Arsenal fans set off fireworks outside Manchester City’s team hotel at 2am on Tuesday ahead of City’s trip to Tottenham.

The plan had only one major flaw – City were not there.

Pep Guardiola’s side face Tottenham tonight and if they win they will move ahead of Arsenal going into the final day of the season.

Ultras members of the Ashburton Army group lit up the night sky with their pyrotechnics in a bid to shut City down.

But the Treble winners don’t stay overnight before Premier League away games and were still in Manchester, meaning their plan backfired.

The team is staying at Delta Hotels Waltham Abbey in Essex, which is often used by traveling clubs.

And Arsenal ultras, donning ‘Ashburton Army’ hoodies and hoodies, were filmed setting off the fireworks at 2am on Tuesday.

It was an extremely dramatic performance, with explosions going off on the street and on the grass in front of the hotel.

This means there would have to be extremely loud fireworks to bother City as the team was still at the other end of the country.

The only people who won’t be in top form today as a result of the night’s events are the other guests who were in the hotel, who were woken up by a fire alarm about 45 minutes later.

“Ashburton Army setting off fireworks in a hotel where City players were staying is absolutely disgraceful. He was supposed to sneak in, take over the kitchen and serve them some dodgy lasagna. A missed opportunity, we have to do better,» said one, referring to the «lasagne-gate» defeat by West Ham that cost Spurs a Champions League place in 2006.

The Gunners are desperate for Spurs to get a result tonight.

They are one point ahead of City and also have a bigger goal difference, but have played a game more.

Their final game of the season is at home to Everton on Sunday, while City take on West Ham at the Etihad Stadium.

By then, City could be two points clear if they beat Tottenham tonight.

Setting off fireworks to disrupt teams is not unprecedented.
