Tottenham Hotspur fans have hit back at Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno for his comments about them.

Arsenal stopper Leno told the Daily Mail yesterday that his side were the real leaders in North London.

"You can't compare, of course Arsenal is a world club, THE club here in London,' he said. 

'Not Chelsea, not Tottenham - Arsenal is the club here with fans around the world.

But Tottenham supporters did not take kindly to the comments from the £19 million (BBC Sport) German stopper.

Despite Leno’s comments, Tottenham have finished ahead of Arsenal for the last three seasons now, with Mauricio Pochettino’s side the only one out of the pair competing in the Champions League.

Spurs and Arsenal look as if they could be in close competition with each other for a top four place this season though, after mixed starts to the season for them both.

 

Tottenham actually took on Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium recently, and the game finished as a 2-2 draw.

Leno didn’t cover himself in glory on that occasion, and he should have done better with the first goal which Spurs scored.

Tottenham are next in action against Crystal Palace, while Arsenal take on Watford.
