Arsenal 'keeper Szczesny mocks Spurs after City defeat

Published 3 Comments

Wojciech Sczcesny has rubbed salt in the wounds of Tottenham after Arsenal's north London rivals succumbed to a humiliating 6-0 defeat against Manchester City yesterday.

Tottenham conceded after just 15 seconds following an error from goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, and things went downhill from there as they fell to their heaviest defeat since 1996 as Manchester City ran riot.

Arsenal enjoyed a much happier weekend as they cruised to a 2-0 victory over Southampton to retain top spot in the Premier League, and Sczcesny couldn't resist the chance to kick rivals Tottenham while the were down.

"Wonderful scenes at The Etihad…" the Arsenal shotstopper posted on his official Facebook page as the game drew to a close.

So far the post has received over 15,000 likes from gleeful Arsenal fans.

Tottenham boss Andre Villas-Boas admitted after the thrashing at the Etihad Stadium that he was "ashamed" with his side's performance, and apologised to the travelling Spurs supporters.

After Jesus Navas opened the scoring, Sandro's own-goal doubled the home side's lead, before Sergio Aguero made it three before the break.

The Argentinian then doubled his tally soon after the restart, before Alvaro Negredo and Navas once more completed the rout.

"It is difficult to explain," said the Portuguese coach. "Everything went wrong for us from being one of the best defences in the country to conceding six goals, it is very hard to find an explanation.

"Our game plan and motivation was immediately affected by conceding after 14 seconds. After the first 20 minutes when we could have got back into the game, we lost control of the situation."

Spurs, who haven't scored in their last three games, are now eight points behind leaders Arsenal in 9th place.
