Arsenal look to have missed out in the race for top four to Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur side.
Tottenham Hotspur supporters absolutely love what Jan Vertonghen has tweeted following Arsenal’s failure to beat Brighton & Hove Albion.
Spurs’ place in the top four was effectively secured yesterday, despite their poor form of late.
Tottenham were beaten by Bournemouth on Saturday, which left their place in the top four in jeopardy.
But Arsenal’s and Manchester United’s failure to win means that Spurs now can’t be caught, unless something extraordinary happens on the final day.
Tottenham are three points clear of Arsenal, with a far superior goal difference.
And Vertonghen, who is on a £100,000-a-week contract at Tottenham (Sportac), was all too happy to rub salt into Arsenal wounds.
I’ll take that— Jan Vertonghen (@JanVertonghen) May 5, 2019
The comments have not gone down well with Arsenal fans, who have hit back at the Spurs man on Twitter.
Of course you'll take that, 4th place with no trophies again and this is why Tottenham will always be a small, no history and tinpot club.— #YaGunnersYa (@k_pryce1) May 5, 2019
finishing above Arsenal, probably the closest you'll get to a trophy playing for Spurs. Congratulations.— Liam Moss (@LiamMosss) May 5, 2019
Finishing above our worst team for nearly a quarter of a century isn’t that big of an achievement.— Sam (@SK_arsenal) May 5, 2019
