Tottenham hero Micky Hazard reacts on Twitter to results, aims dig at Arsenal

Spurs blew a golden chance to finally finish above rivals Arsenal.

Tottenham Hotspur fluffed their lines against Newcastle, losing 5-1 when they needed just a draw to finish in second place.

Their loss saw them drop to third, finishing behind rivals Arsenal, having collected just two points from their final four games.

The turnaround led to celebrations at Arsenal, who beat Aston Villa 4-0, with supporters and ex-players revelling in their annual tradition of St Totteringham Day - marking the point in the season where it is impossible for Spurs to finish above them.

It had appeared the 'event' could be cancelled this year, but Arsenal supporters reacted with delight and amusement at The Emirates as the scoreline from St James Park filtered through, with Spurs fans taking plenty of flak on social media.

Former Spurs hero Micky Hazard attempted to shoot down comments from Arsenal supporters, insisting that the only club who deserved to give Tottenham stick are Premier League champions Leicester City.

Hazard's message is simple, implying that Arsenal are bottlers as well as Tottenham. 

Unlike Spurs, Arsenal came into the Premier League season as favourites, and will overall be disappointed with their season's performance - but the way the campaign ended has altered perspectives, temporarily at least.
