Tottenham Hotspur had an afternoon which will be hard to forget after suffering a convincing 3-1 defeat at Arsenal.
Spurs headed into the North London derby having been on the end of respective 3-0 defeats to Crystal Palace and Chelsea in their last two Premier League outings and there were certainly no positives to take from the match at the Emirates.
Arsenal dominated proceedings and were the hungrier of the two sides and in reality, had put the result beyond Nuno Espirito Santo’s side by the half time break having raced to a three-goal lead with Spurs unable to lay a glove on the hosts.
Tottenham looked lethargic and toothless, having failed to put the Gunners under any form of threat until a rare attack in the second half saw Heung-min Son grab nothing more than a consolation.
Here is a selection of thoughts from some Spurs fans on what they saw during the club’s third successive league defeat.
Nuno tomorrow 🙏🏼🙏🏼 pic.twitter.com/NXtNmiZaLi

Does this organization care at all about its fans? Millions of us around the world invest emotion and money into supporting this club, and we’re “rewarded” like this? If @SpursOfficial don’t care, why should we?

Conte lost 3-0 here in 9/24/2016. He changed to a 3 at the back and won the league. Let’s be honest spurs fans, Nuno isn’t going to get sacked after this match. Lets see what lineup he puts out against villa. But if he doesn’t change his system, he has to go.

Being ole'd by Chelsea? Fine, whatever, they're top 2 quality. But by Arsenal? Appalling, sack him now. Unforgiveable few weeks, get rid ASAP and sort this shit out.

Bye Nuno you’re a nice guy that’s why you kept the job until now

Well, better second half…
I wanted Potter before I wanted Nuno, but he wouldn't be able to fix this.
Nuno isn't to blame, these issues are deep rooted. Lacking depth – never built with Poch.
Gil and Skipp offered fight at end.
On to Thursday, please don't lose that one.

Jose had good tactics but bad vibes, Nuno has good vibes but no tactics. We just cannot win.

Embarrassing. No plan. Get a proper attacking manager in who knows how to use the players!
