2. No one spoils a party better

Can West Ham (please) reprise their role as party poopers?

They boast quite an impressive history in that regard, as a Bobby Zamora strike saw them become the first away team to win at Emirates Stadium back in 2007 while Michail Antonio earned them the same honour at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium five years ago.

Additionally, lest we forgot how the Hammers claimed a surprise 2-0 victory versus Arsenal last December, which is part of the reason for our current helplessness.

Those victories have and will stand the test of time, yet similar immortalisation awaits if they can deny Man City an unprecedented fourth successive title- perhaps the Moyes send-off factor will give them some extra motivation.

Party-pooper antics are normally reserved for London clubs, but there is always room for an exception and West Ham owe us one after their Emirates triumph.
