Arsenal have started potential plans to have a Premier League title parade in case they win the title next week.

The Gunners are currently involved in a three-way battle for the title with Manchester City and Liverpool (mathematically). They remain the second-favourites to win the title.

Mikel Arteta's side are currently one point ahead of Manchester City, but the defending champions have played a game less. The North London club will be hoping for Pep Guardiola's side to slip up in one of their games to hand them an opportunity to win their first title since 2004.

Arsenal and Manchester City's remaining fixtures

Football London reports that the title parade has been slated for May 20, a day after the final day of the Premier League season. Arsenal will host Everton at the Emirates Stadium on the final day as Manchester City play West Ham.

Before that, Arsenal travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United, while Manchester City will be in West London to play Fulham before going north to Tottenham in midweek to play their game in hand.

Why Arsenal have planned for parade before winning title

In the title parade plans, the open-air bus will start at 5pm at Emirates Stadium before snaking its way around the city and returning to the stadium at 7 pm.

The plans have been put in motion early, as permits for road closures and other requirements take time before approval.

Why Arteta could miss Everton games

Sports Brief has also reported about why Arteta could miss Arsenal's game vs Everton in the final day of the Premier League Season.

Arteta has been the greatest casualty of the new rules to crack on manager dissent, with the former Manchester City assistant boss walking on eggshells.

He is currently one booking away from a suspension, and should he get it away to Old Trafford this weekend, he will miss the crucial clash against Everton on May 19.
