Could this have prompted Theo? A picture no Arsenal fan will want to see

Tottenham fans draped the club shirt over one of the Arsenal statues outside the stadium.

There seemed to be plenty of competitiveness between Arsenal and Tottenham during yesterday's FA Cup match.

The "Walcott gestures scoreline" news is taking much of the headline space, and there were other moments when fans and players tried to rile up their local rivals.

One of the cheekiest actions saw Tottenham fans drape last season's home shirt over the statue of Arsenal legend Thierry Henry. It's a sight few Gunners fans would be happy seeing so those of you of a nervous disposition look away now.

Whether these incidents are harmless banter or carry the possibility to incite the opposition is perhaps a question for another day.

But it doesn't half keep the fixture interesting.
