When Tottenham lost to Bournemouth on Saturday after seeing two of their players sent off either side of the interval, it looked like Mauricio Pochettino’s men would have to endure a nervy final home game against Everton, with the Lilywhites needing to win seal a top four place.
However, both Manchester United and Arsenal were held to draws on Sunday by Huddersfield and Brighton respectively, meaning that Spurs have now secured a top four place baring a miracle on the final day of the season.
Arsenal fans who mocked Tottenham earlier in the season and suggested that the Gunners were going to finish above Spurs, were thus called out on social media by some Spurs fans.
Former Tottenham midfielder Micky Hazard joined in the action and had a laugh at the expense of DT, an Arsenal fan who is a regular part of AFTV.
Hazard, who made 102 appearances for Tottenham over two spells, reminded DT of his promise to donate £200 to charity if Spurs finished ahead of their North London neighbors.

Throughout the course of the season, Arsenal fans kept mocking Spurs and suggesting that they would overtake them, but their team has repeatedly bottled supposedly easy games in their final run in.
This is the third straight season that Spurs will finish above Arsenal, and the fact that they have managed to do it again yet again this time around despite being poor in the League in several stretches, suggests that the power shift has well and truly happened.
