Arsenal have finished second in the Premier League table this season, while Tottenham have ended up third.
Tottenham were expected to finish second, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side suffered an embarrassing 5-1 defeat to relegated Newcastle on Sunday.
Arsenal hammered Aston Villa, who have also been relegated, 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium to edge ahead of their bitter North London rivals.
Ferdinand has made an interesting observation about the two club’s season on Twitter.
Spurs had a great season by their standards, improvements all round. Arsenal have been their normal self & fans disgruntled but above spurs!— Rio Ferdinand (@rioferdy5) May 15, 2016
It is normal for Arenal to finish in the top four of the Premier League, while for Tottenham this has been a truly superb campaign.
Yet, the fact that the Gunners finished above Spurs suggests that there is still a considerable gap between the two teams.
What if Arsenal had a really great season instead of a ‘normal’ campaign? How far behind would Tottenham be?
