Tottenham’s North London Derby post on social media backfires as Arsenal troll

With footballing action suspended across Europe, social media handles from various clubs have been tweeting mostly about iconic goals, players, and matches from the past.

This weekend was supposed to be the date on which the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium would host its first North London Derby against Arsenal.

Tottenham’s official Twitter account took the opportunity to post iconic derby moments from the recent past, including Harry Kane’s wondergoal in 2017 in what was the final derby game at White Hart Lane.

However, little did the Spurs admin realise that it is also 16 years to the day that the Gunners won the league at White Hart Lane.

So, needless to say, Arsenal fans jumped on the Tottenham post and inundated it with pictures of their title win.

Meanwhile, Arsenal’s official account also got involved with a funny gif of Thierry Henry smirking – one that has done the rounds in the past.

The Tottenham social media admin dropped the ball here and must be a little more careful in future to avoid mockery.
