Tottenham succumbed to a humiliating 5-1 defeat at the hands of Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon which allowed rivals Arsenal to overtake them and secure a second place finish in the Premier League. 

Spurs finished the campaign in third and would have been left feeling sorry for themselves following the full-time whistle at St James' Park. 

It was certainly a day to forget for Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino, who described the game as his 'worst day as a manager'.

The Tottenham boss stated, as per the BBC: "I think today we showed that this wasn't a team that had played well through the whole season.

"I think this was my worst day as a manager in England or Spain."

Following the game, then, fans of rival clubs - most notably Arsenal supporters - trolled the White Hart Lane outfit in style. Unfortunately for Spurs, fans had another reason to troll them on social media. 

Indeed, in the aftermath of shipping five goals to already relegated Newcastle United, a tweet from Spurs before the clash once again came to prominence. Why? Well, Spurs tweeted a video of goalkeeper Hugo Lloris making a save, claiming that nothing was getting past him in the warm-up. Oh. 

Here's the tweet 


Let's be honest, Spurs were never going to get away with this one and fans on social media once again exploited them. 

Here are the best tweets:

Arsenal victory 

It was certainly a pleasing day for Arsenal supporters, who have now watched their side finish above Tottenham for the past 21 consecutive campaigns.

The Gunners cruised to a 4-0 victory over already relegated Aston Villa. Frenchman Olivier Giroud hogged the headlines as he struck a fine hat-trick in front of the Emirates faithful. 

Following the game, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insisted that it's not his side's main aim to finish above Spurs, but he was satisfied that his team managed to secure a second place in the division. 

Wenger stated, as per the BBC: "We don't start the season and think we want to finish above Tottenham but today we played with the only target we had. Today the aim before the game was to finish second.

"We achieved it. For a while our supporters were not going home very happy and today at least they had some satisfaction."

St Totteringham's Day certainly arrived late, but it was a significant occasion for Arsenal fans nonetheless.
