Arsenal fans beg Delia Smith to cook a ‘dodgy lasagne’ when Spurs play Norwich on Prem’s final day

ARSENAL fans are turning their hopes to Norwich owner Delia Smith ahead of the Canaries' clash with Tottenham on Sunday.

Spurs need only a point to finish in the top four after Arsenal missed out on the opportunity to move ahead of their rivals with defeat to Newcastle on Monday.

The Gunners must beat Everton on Sunday and hope already relegated Norwich beat Tottenham.

And considering how unlikely that outcome is, some fans have jokingly called on Delia to rustle up a lasagne for her visitors.

They are of course referencing the famous Lasagne-gate match at the end of the 2005-06 season – when all Spurs had to do was match Arsenal's result to secure Champions League football.

But instead Martin Jol's side lost 2-1 at West Ham with a depleted squad while Arsenal won at Wigan.

Ten players were unavailable at Upton Park that day with many others suffering from a stomach bug, including Robbie Keane and Michael Carrick.

Reports claimed a dodgy lasagne was the cause of the food poisoning so Arsenal fans are hoping the Italian dish can dent Spurs' hopes again – courtesy of celebrity chef Delia.

One supporter wrote on Twitter: "Our only hope is a Delia Smith dodgy lasagne."

Another added: "Delia Smith, whip up a lasagne why don’t ya."

But it seems it will take more than a dodgy lasagne to stop a rampantSpurs from securing their place in the Champions League.

Antonio Conte's side have been brilliant in the last few months, winning nine out of their last 13 Premier League games and conceding just five goals in the past seven outings.
