Arsenal’s hopes of finishing in the top four suffered another blow as they were beaten 2-0 by Tottenham Hotspur in the final ever north London derby at White Hart Lane on Sunday.
After seeing Everton lose against Chelsea and Manchester United and Manchester City drawing against relegation strugglers Swansea City and Middlesbrough respectively, the Gunners knew they had an opportunity to close the gap on the top four and boost their chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
However, second half goals from Dele Alli and Harry Kane instead saw Arsene Wenger’s men suffer their ninth Premier League defeat of the campaign and they are now six points behind fourth-placed City with five fixtures remaining, while they are guaranteed to finish behind their arch-rivals for the first time since 1995.
Arsenal supporters were quick to have their say on the result via social media, and they didn’t hold back in their description of the performance.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
