By Dominic Toner
Micky Hazard believes that Arsenal’s draw against Manchester City on Sunday was a good result for Tottenham.
The Gunners drew 2-2 at home to Man City and the result inflicts pain on both sides for contrasting reason.
Arsenal remain sixth-placed in the Premier League table and are seven points adrift of the top-four spots, meaning they are now in danger of missing out on the Champions League places.
Meanwhile, Man City stay fourth and have seen any slims chances of the title drift even further.
Second-placed Spurs saw their own title aspirations boosted over the weekend after beating Burnley 2-0, while leaders Chelsea lost at home to Crystal Palace and are now just seven points clear.
