Tottenham Hotspur prospect mocks rivals Arsenal on Twitter

Tottenham Hotspur prospect Kazaiah Sterling took a dig at rivals Arsenal on Twitter.

Tottenham Hotspur striking prospect Kazaiah Sterling has endeared himself to supporters by making a dig at rivals Arsenal.

Sterling is an England youth international and was part of the side's FA Youth Cup run to the semi-finals, and took to Twitter while watching the highlights of Arsenal's 4-1 win over West Brom on Match of the Day.

The youngster felt the manner of the win was a futile effort, with the club's title challenge wilting last month when they failed to win at home to would-be champions Chelsea.

Arsenal have often been criticised for trying to score goals in a too-intricate manner, and had not netted for three consecutive games in the lead up to the win over West Brom.

Their win included superb strikes from Theo Walcott and Jack Wilshere, who lashed unstoppable efforts into the net amid their desire to impress manager Arsene Wenger and earn a place in the club's FA Cup Final starting line-up next week.

  MatchTotal Scoring Attempts
Arsenal Arsenal vs Burnley 32
Arsenal Arsenal vs Sunderland 28
Arsenal Arsenal vs Hull City 25
Arsenal Leicester vs Arsenal 24
Arsenal Arsenal vs West Brom 24

The game featured in Arsenal's top five this season in number of attempts on goal in a single match in the Premier League.

They are having no problem in creating chances at present, with their midweek match against Sunderland also listed, but they had less luck on that occasion, held to a 0-0 draw.

If Aston Villa allow them 24 shots on goal next week, there is a strong chance the Gunners will be celebrating winning the FA Cup, as they aim to succeed at Wembley where rivals Tottenham failed earlier this season in the Capital One Cup Final.
