Tottenham Hotspur’s chances of winning the Premier League title all but ended on Friday night as they suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of rivals West Ham United at the London Stadium, much to the delight of Arsenal fans.
Spurs knew that they could increase the pressure on leaders Chelsea by picking up all three points against the Irons, which would have closed the gap between the two to just one point.
However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men were far from their best despite beating the Gunners 2-0 in the final ever north London derby at White Hart Lane last weekend, and Manuel Lanzini’s second half goal proved to be the difference between the two teams.
Arsenal supporters were quick to have their say on the defeat via social media, and they didn’t hold back in goading their arch-rivals who look set to go another year without winning their first Premier League trophy.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
