Tottenham went toe to toe with Juventus in the last 16 of the Champions League but ultimately were beaten, losing the tie 4-3 on aggregate.
The performance of Mauricio Pochettino’s side has drawn widespread plaudits but Arsenal fans, unsurprisingly, are having none of it.

After years of eliminations at the last 16 stage of the Champions League, Arsenal fans seem to be enjoying not being the North London side knocked out in the first knockout round this time around – even though that’s only because they’re not in the competition.
As Spurs recovered from the three-minute double-whammy from Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala that won the game for Juve, Arsenal fans were online basking in the moment. We’ve taken a look at the best of the reaction…
