Some Tottenham fans took to social media to mock their North London rivals after Arsenal’s loss to Aston Villa on Monday meant that they will finish below Spurs again this year.
The picture looked completely different a couple of weeks ago with Mikel Arteta’s side sitting above Spurs in the Premier League table ahead of the North London Derby, in which Jose Mourinho’s men ran out 2-1 winners.
With Tottenham comfortably seeing off Newcastle United and Leicester City since the derby, Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at Villa Park means that an eight-place finish is the best they can now hope for.
The result also meant that Spurs have now finished ahead of their rivals for four seasons in a row.
Arsenal made it a habit of finishing above Spurs until 2016, with Arsenal fans celebrating the event each season as the infamous ‘St Totteringham’s day’.
However, with the Lilywhites now making it a habit of finishing ahead of their rivals, some Spurs fans wondered if the holiday needed to be renamed.

It is now mathematically impossible for Arsenal to finish above Tottenham this season,
St Totteringham’s Day is officially cancelled…

The best thing about there being no St Totteringham's Day again, is you know it upsets them so much. They will be absolutely fuming. Shame. #COYS

Spurs Web Opinion
I am not sure we should get too cocky just yet since Arsenal are in the FA Cup final. They may well have the last laugh if they beat Chelsea in the final and qualify for the Europa League at our expense. Let’s hope Chelsea overturn Wolves and we beat Palace next Sunday so that we have sixth place wrapped up before the final.
