Arsenal fans react on Twitter to Tottenham’s 6-0 defeat

Tottenham's biggest rivals have taken to the social networking site to give their thoughts on this afternoon's result against Manchester City.

Twitter is a way for people to connect, to befriend (at least in a virtual sense) people they would otherwise never come into contact with, and to share their feelings in a sound-bite world.

Oh, and it is also to poke fun at your rivals, which is exactly what Arsenal supporters did following Tottenham Hotspur’s 6-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City earlier today.

Tottenham went into the match with an outstanding defensive record, but ended it with their heads in their hands and their title hopes if not in tatters then certainly in need of significant repairs.

Goals from Jesus Navas in the first and last minutes were the bookends for additional strikes from Sergio Aguero (who bagged a brace) and Alvaro Negredo, along with an own-goal from Spurs midfielder Sandro.

Tottenham’s 13 shots at goal were just two efforts less than City managed in the 90 minutes. And yet the difference was in the detail, with Manuel Pellegrini’s men hitting the target twice as many times as Spurs.

Spurs also had 6% more possession over the course of the match, but that counted for nothing in the grand scheme of things.

We took to Twitter to see what Arsenal fans made of their fierce rivals' Sunday afternoon humbling, and we have included a selection below:
