After Arsenal announced their line-up for their 6pm kick-off for the Europa League on Thursday night, Tottnaham fans took to Twitter to laugh at the Gunners.
Spurs are playing in the Champions League this season, and without any doubt, they’ve been impressive so far in the competition, drawing 1-1 at Santiago Bernabeu with Real Madrid while later thrashing the Los Blancos 3-1 at the Wembley.
Spurs latest victory was against Serie A champions Juventus on Tuesday evening in the Champions League which made the headlines as they came back from 2-0 down to secure a 2-2 draw at Turin.
And after years of having put up with Arsenal jibes, it now appears Tottenham are favourites ahead of the Gunners and fans couldn’t resist causing some mischief on Twitter.
One American fan crowed the North London rival that “Arsenal have been dropped by Fox Sports 1 for Truck Racing” while another said their strong starting XI against their Europa rival reeked of desperation.
However, this could be the Gunners’ best shot of making the Champions League next season. The club are currently off the pace in the Premier League again, and will struggle to make the top four.
They sit in sixth place, eight points behind Chelsea in fourth and seven points behind Tottenham in fifth.
Football Hitz‘ have highlighted the best reactions from amused Tottenham fans ahead of the 6pm kick-off:
