A number of Tottenham Hotspur fans have roundly mocked West Ham United on Twitter after Robert Snodgrass said the Hammers' victory over Spurs was the highlight of his campaign.

Manuel Pellegrini's charges beat Tottenham 1-0 on 27 April, inflicting the first defeat on the Lilywhites at their new stadium thanks to Michail Antonio's 67th-minute winner.

Though it proved a deflating defeat for the Spurs contingent and threatened to derail their top-four hopes, they held firm to finish fourth in the table ahead of bitter rivals Arsenal.

 

Tottenham have played West Ham three times this season, twice in the league and also in the last 16 of the EFL Cup, with Mauricio Pochettino's side winning two of those.

On top of that, Spurs will be contesting the Champions League final and have qualified for next season's competition, while the Hammers have finished 10th in the standings.

Needless to say, Snodgrass telling the West Ham site that "I would say the game where we beat Spurs is my favourite memory of the campaign" has led to derision from quite a few fans of the North London club.

Here is just some of the Twitter reaction following the Hammers man's comments:
