Tottenham fans are mercilessly mocking Liverpool, after their side finished above the Merseysiders for the eighth time in nine seasons.
Tottenham looked to have ruined their chances of a third place finish on Sunday when they fell behind to Leicester, but “destiny still arrives” as some of their fans are saying.
Liverpool won 4-0 against Brighton, meaning Spurs had to win to ensure a third place finish, and they did just that thanks to Harry Kane’s superb cultured finish to win the game 5-4.
Liverpool of course have a Champions League final to look forward to, and their European efforts have certainly hampered their Premier League form, but nonetheless Spurs fans are having the last laugh.
The two clubs have formed somewhat of a new rivalry over the incidents at Anfield earlier this year, when Harry Kane had two attempts from the penalty spot to help the visitors to a 2-2 draw.
Liverpool finished above Tottenham in 2013/14 when they fell short to Manchester City in the title race, but excluding that season the Reds have not topped Spurs since the 2008/09 season.
Liverpool fans enjoyed Mohamed Salah grabbing the golden boot over Kane, but Tottenham fans are certainly enjoying themselves too, and some of the best Twitter reactions can be found below…
Some of you may be expecting this but here we go. Not pre-prepared, at all.
3-1 down after half time, but we win 5-4.

In 2007-2008, Liverpool finished 4th, Tottenham finished 11th.
In the next decade, Liverpool finished below Tottenham 8 times and won the exact same amount of trophies. Yet we're the bottlers lol

If Spurs win today, they’ll finish above Liverpool for the 4th season in a row & the 8th time in 9 years. Won’t get mentioned in the media though..
