West Ham defender, Vladimir Coufal, finds added motivation to thwart Manchester City's title bid on Sunday, courtesy of his local café's owner, a fervent Arsenal supporter.

The English topflight season for 2023/24 is scheduled to conclude on Sunday, May 19.

All attention will be on the title race, which will be decided after the final round of fixtures.

The race features the Gunners, determined to end their two-decade wait for the crown, against City, who aspire to claim a historic fourth consecutive title.

The Citizens will play the Hammers at the Etihad Stadium for their final match, while Mikel Arteta's side will host Everton at the Emirates Stadium, per Metro Sport.

Coufal offered coffee by Arsenal fan

Should David Moyes' side clinch at least a draw against Manchester City and Arsenal triumph over Everton, the North London-based side will win the Premier League title — and Coufal will be entitled to free coffee for life.

"I have been offered free coffee for the rest of my life!" the 31-year-old told Sky Sports.

Coufal has received a deluge of encouragement from Arsenal fans, with some even expressing hopes for him to break his goal drought for West Ham this weekend.

"I have many Arsenal fans around me," he added. "My son is playing football, so I have big Arsenal fans there.
"I received some messages from them like, 'Your first goal in the Premier League is coming!' and stuff like that. It would be really nice, but we will see."

While on paper, West Ham have no stakes in the final day of the season following their confirmed ninth-place finish on Wednesday night, the chance to play kingmaker in the race for the Premier League trophy is a unique opportunity for Coufal.

Eager to disrupt City's dominance as they aim for a historic fourth consecutive league title, the Czech Republic star is determined to make his mark.

"It would be a great story that West Ham can cancel the Manchester City hegemony, Coufal said. They can be the first team to win it four times in a row, so it would be nice to stop it."

Arsenal mocked for celebration rehearsals

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Arsenal finding themselves on the receiving end after a clip surfaced of the club rehearsing Premier League trophy presentation at the Emirates.

While they stand a chance of lifting the crown under Arteta for the first time in two decades, City have a significant edge over them in the title race.
