.@Arsenal finish 2nd (above Spurs) in the Premier League! Not a bad way to end the season, is it?— Lauren Etame Mayer (@Lauren12arsenal) 15 May 2016
Tottenham were in the running for the Premier League title just a few weeks ago, and their fans will be disappointed with the team’s recent results.
Arsenal’s season has not been great, but the fact that they have ended up above Spurs in the league table is yet another indicator that there is a gap between the two North London clubs.
