Spurs Fans React To Happy Day After Derby Victory


On Saturday afternoon the race for the top four really hotted up… But in North London, bragging rights were also up for grabs as Spurs met Arsenal.

The two sides drew 1-1 in the corresponding fixture back in September, and following booking their Wembley place, Tottenham fans had eyes for a Champions League place too. However although that would the unthinkable for Arsenal supporters, unlike the fans of EastEnders as they watch the script of ‘Who killed Lucy’ unfold, the story that developed for them at White Hart Lane was far more predictable.

Following a bright start, and Ozil giving the Gunners a first half advantage, Arsenal reprized their familiar character in the final 15 minutes – ‘Prior to their Etihad exploits’.
Bedlam as per usual in the Arsenal penalty area from a Spurs set piece and former Millwall loanee Harry Kane was left unmarked at the back post – where he simply couldn’t miss.
But if the first goal was gift-wrapped, the second was handmade by Kane himself. From a Bentaleb cross the tall front man leapt above two Arsenal defenders and guided a header into the far corner, causing Ospina to stand hapless, and pundits and supporters to quickly call comparisons to a former great – Teddy Sheringham. Upon leaving the pitch, their inform striker glared down a TV lens knowingly that surely now everyone in the country could see him.
But if there is a question as to whether Real Madrid fans saw Kane deliver two knockout blows, Arsenal fans did, and for the first time in a while Spurs supporters had an opportunity to dance in their neighbours misery courtesy of their latest hero.
So after a derby weekend to remember, usually mundane Monday’s for Spurs fans, were actually all white today…
