Ex-Arsenal striker launches a dig at Tottenham Hotspur

For everyone connected with Arsenal, whether it be fans or former players, it was a very enjoyable weekend.

Arsene Wenger’s side headed into Saturday’s North London derby with the main focus being on Tottenham Hotspur’s rise over the years.

Some even tipped Mauricio Pochettino’s men to cause an upset at the Emirates, but the Gunners made sure that the power shift was non-existent as they claimed a 2-0 victory.

Shkodran Mustafi nabbed a first-half header to put Arsenal in front and Alexis Sanchez doubled Arsenal’s tally, which was not disrupted by Spurs.

Kevin Campbell, who came through the ranks at Arsenal before spending seven years in the senior side, was understandably delighted with the result.

Over the weekend the 47-year-old – as he so often does – interacted with fans on Twitter, and on one occasion decided to poke fun at Tottenham’s trophy history.

Spurs have finished third and second in the Premier League over the past two seasons but they have not lifted silverware since the 2007-08 season when they won the League Cup.

In the club’s history they have only secured the league title twice, while Arsenal are 13-time champions.
