Four weeks ago, everything seemed so promising for Spurs.

They had just filleted Stoke 4-0, their young stars Dele Alli and Harry Kane each grabbing a brace to reduce Leicester's lead at the top to just five. Mauricio Pochettino's men looked prime to overtake the Foxes after that win but amazingly, they have taken just two points from their final four games to tumble down to third.

Not only did Spurs miss out on Premier League glory, but their 5-1 hammering at the hands of Newcastle today coupled with Arsenal's 4-0 win over Aston Villa meant that Arsene Wenger's side finished ahead of their North London rivals once again, something that seemed unthinkable a few weeks ago.

You now have to go all the way back to 1994/95 to find the last time that Spurs managed to do better than Arsenal in a Premier League season.

Given the rivalry between the two clubs, it is no surprise that a few Gunners took to Twitter to express their delight at how the last day played out.
