For two decades, Tottenham Hotspur have had to deal with Arsenal dominating North London, but now it is they who are flying high.
Arsene Wenger has come under huge criticism in recent weeks for Arsenal’s performances, which has seen them slip further down the Premier League table.
The manner of the Gunners’ Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City raised alarm bells, and they failed to bounce back in the league meeting between the pair as they lost by the same 3-0 scoreline.
Wenger’s men had an opportunity to get back on track against Brighton at the weekend, but it was not to be as they suffered a 2-1 loss at the Amex Stadium.
As it stands, Arsenal are sixth in the top-flight table and sit a mammoth 13 points adrift of fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur, which means that they are likely to miss out on Champions League football for the second year running.
There seems to have been a power shift in North London as Spurs could finish above the Gunners in the standings for the second consecutive season following the 2016-17 campaign in which Mauricio Pochettino’s men secured second place.
It is safe to say that Tottenham fans are enjoying their rival’s demise.
MIND THE GAP !

I don’t know if I feel more joy of our 17 game unbeaten streak or Arsenal losing 5 of their last six?
