Tottenham Hotspur fans have taken to social networking site Twitter to give their reaction to missing out on the second spot in the Premier League table this season.
Spurs suffered a 5-1 defeat to already relegated Newcastle United away from home at St. James’ Park on Sunday afternoon to finish behind bitter North London rivals Arsenal.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side headed into the match needing just a draw to finish second in the standings.
It was supposed to be quite comfortable for Spurs, but the Magpies turned on the style and gave a marvellous performance, especially in the second half.
Newcastle finished the game with 10 men due to the sending-off of striker Aleksandar Mitrovic, but Rafael Benitez’s side still won the encounter 5-1.
Meanwhile, at the Emirates Stadium, hosts Arsenal got the better of already relegated Aston Villa 4-0, thanks to a hat-trick from France international striker Olivier Giroud.
Tottenham fans have taken to Twitter to give their reaction to their side’s stunning collapse against Newcastle and on losing out on the second spot.

The lack of a second centre forward has really come back to haunt us in the end #THFC— Brian Kenny (@THFC29) May 15, 2016
Arsenal fans celebrating finishing second like they've won the league.. How the mighty have fallen!! COYS!!— Nick Eldridge (@NicEldridge87) May 15, 2016
Being second for the most of 2016 and then a 0-4 win at Stoke marked the end of our campaign. WHOLE MONTH without a win. Disappointed #COYS— Deni (@denidelev) May 15, 2016
Disappointed to blow second after a great season, that's the normal Spurs.— George Herbert (@georgeherby) May 15, 2016
Champions league football though, onwards and upwards #COYS
Absolutely awful. Third is amazing, but throwing away second by losing 4-1 to a relegated side is not good enough. #coys— mostbutnotall (@mostbutnotall) May 15, 2016
