Tottenham fans react on Twitter to finishing third in Premier League

Tottenham Hotspur’s defeat to Newcastle United means that Arsenal finish second in the Premier League table this season.

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.
