Tottenham Hotspur suffered heartache on Wednesday night when they were knocked out of the Champions League by Juventus.
For their fans, it was a disappointing evening, but for some rivals, it was rather enjoyable.
As expected, Arsenal supporters were happy to see their arch rivals fail to reach the quarter-finals, while groups of West Ham United’s following also took joy in it.
Spurs headed into the fixture in a confident mood given that they came from 2-0 down in Turin to earn a 2-2 draw in the first leg of their last-16 tie against Juventus.
The two away goals put Mauricio Pochettino’s men in a strong position heading into the second leg at Wembley.
Spurs dominated the first half and were rewarded when Son Heung-min netted in the 39th minute.
However, after the break, Juve boss Massimiliano Allegri switched the formation to 4-4-2 and inside three minutes, Gonzalo Higuain and Paulo Dybala scored to give the Italian giants a 4-3 victory.
After the final whistle, West Ham fans took to Twitter, with some choosing to mock their London rivals, while others felt that they had no right to tease given that the Hammers are streets behind.
Spurs lost to Juve in the Champions League & we can banter.
But where are we West Ham fans? A long way back is where we are! #WHUFC

I hate Spurs as much as the next person, and enjoy laughing at them, but when all is said and done we couldn’t even get into the group stages of the Europa League let alone anywhere near the Champions League #COYI #FOYS

For the first time I feel sorry for Spurs. They practically are a banter club with a trophy less present and past. Why are people praising the manager? He won them nothing. I guess this is the similarity between Tottenham and West Ham: fans falling easily for coaches with passion

That is further confirmation that Tottenham Hotspur will be winning the same amount of trophies as West Ham for yet another year.
