Spurs were 2-0 up at Stamford Bridge but conceded twice in the second half, leaving their title dream in tatters.
It goes without saying that Arsenal supporters have been revelling in their rivals’ misery over the past few days - and one member of the Gunners’ faithful couldn’t resist trolling Jan Vertonghen after spotting him in the street this week. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

The Arsenal fan asks the Belgian defender for a selfie before saying: “Tottenham winning the league, yeah? You’re having a laugh!”
Vertonghen, who didn’t look particularly enthused by the selfie proposition in the first place, quickly realised he was being trolled and simply carried on looking at his phone.

Fair play to the 29-year-old, who could have been forgiven for reacting but kept his cool.
The Arsenal fan, meanwhile, looked pretty pleased with himself and chanted to camera: “Red Army! Red Army!”
Arsenal are still behind Spurs in the table...
The supporter appeared to temporarily forget that Spurs are still above his team in the Premier League table.
Arsenal currently sit three points behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side with two matches of the season remaining.
Pochettino determined to finish second
Speaking after Monday night’s draw in west London, Pochettino was quoted by the Guardian as saying: “It was a derby, we were fighting to win the title and Chelsea were fighting to try and win. We were all involved. When you play for the title and play a big team like Chelsea, they want to win. It was normal emotion, fighting on the pitch is not a good example, for both teams.
“In football we want to win and sometimes situations like tonight happen. I think there is nothing to say, nothing to blame, how they [Chelsea] take the game shows big respect for us. That makes us feel proud.
“Our players are disappointed and sad, we need to feel that for the future. We are the youngest squad in the Premier League and to be in this position is fantastic. Now we need to focus to keep our place and finish second.”
