PHOTO: Tottenham fans' 'hate Arsenal and Chelsea' goods on sale

White Hart Lane 6

Anti-Arsenal and Chelsea merchandise on sale outside Tottenham's home stadium.

Tottenham fans crave superiority over their rivals, but it has not always been easy to come by.

Spurs sit below both Chelsea and Arsenal in the Premier League, with the Blues on course to win it.

Arsenal have consistently finished above Spurs over the past two decades, while the last time Totteham outdid Chelsea, the Blues KO'd them from the Champions League spot by winning Europe's most prestigious competition, in a rule which is now defunct.

It may be little wonder then, that fans may not be shy in coming forward for particular merchandise on sale outside White Hart Lane, emblazoned with 'Hate Arsenal' and 'Hate Chelsea' slogans.

Tottenham have already had their trip to The Emirates for the year, drawing 1-1, but a fair few may have been snapped up ahead of their visit to Stamford Bridge in midweek.

Such merchandise on sale is typical outside every ground up and down the country, and shows that while glory matters - being able to boast of superiority to, or simply despising rival clubs is as big a part of the game as ever before.
