Tottenham Hotspur fans have reacted to a statistic that places their total points tally for the decade above that of Arsenal.
A Fox Sports graphic shows that Spurs took 703 points across the last 10 years.
[@FoxSports] | Arsenal for 3,648 days accumulated more points than Tottenham Hotspur during this decade in the Premier League.

Arsenal were, reportedly, ahead of their north London rivals for 3,648 accumulated days, but their defeat to Chelsea at the weekend means they have taken 702 points.
Both are significantly ahead of seventh-placed Everton, with 567 points, while Liverpool were in fourth with 710. Manchester City lead the pack with 818 points; Manchester United are second with 747, while Chelsea, in third, took 740.
And fans have relished the fact that they have the bragging rights over their north London rivals.

It’s an extremely important stat.
It shows that the consistency was there but real ambition fell short.

Ultimately, this doesn’t really matter.
Money talks: How much did Levy pay for each of these Spurs stars?
Spurs have made immense strides on the pitch and are perhaps now a significantly better team than Arsenal.
They have finished above the Gunners in each of the last three seasons.
But the trophies for Arsenal, which Spurs fans are unlikely to want to admit, are where it really matters.
Since 2010, Spurs haven’t won a thing. Arsenal have won three FA Cups.
That, unfortunately, is the real quiz.
Meanwhile, Spurs fans have reacted to a major update on Christian Eriksen.
