Arsenal fans are planning a gesture towards their Tottenham rivals in the North London derby later today.

Arsenal fans are planning to clap in the 61st minute of the North London derby to commemorate the last time Tottenham Hotspur won the league title.

Tension appears to be high between fans of both clubs and according to a number of Tweets on Twitter, the red half of North London won’t hold back in poking some fun at their local rivals.

Spurs go into the game as underdogs but Mauricio Pochettino will encourage his side to play pressure free and flowing attacking football as they look to bounce back from a 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Brom.

Arsenal ended a silverware drought themselves last season by winning the FA Cup, which was their first trophy since 2005.

However, Arsene Wenger hasn’t won the Premier League at the club since the 2003/2004 season and three points in this game will help his side close the gap on Chelsea at the top of the league.

Here are a few Tweets from fans supposedly planning to clap in the 61st minute today.
