Arsenal troll Spurs on Twitter

Arsenal put on a masterclass in the final 20 minutes of their game with Sunderland to secure a comfortable 4-1 victory.

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to score two goals with his first two touches to inflict the Black Cats to the worst start of any team in Premier League history after 10 games.

Alexis Sanchez also grabbed two goals in the game which temporarily takes the Gunners to the top of the table.

Jermain Defoe had equalised from the penalty spot for the hosts but their joy only lasted six minutes before Frenchman Giroud's contribution.

As with most football teams nowadays, their official social media accounts are updating the respective feeds throughout the game and it was after the game that Arsenal's Twitter account trolled north London rivals Tottenham.

A picture emerged shortly after the game of a fan in the Sunderland end bizarrely wearing a Spurs shirt - we're unsure whether he was a genuine Spurs fan or merely a Sunderland fan who wanted to mock their opposition, but it was strange nonetheless.

And Arsenal's Twitter team picked up on it instantly with a brilliant tweet that they tagged Spurs' official account in.

The tweet read: 'We wonder if he's enjoyed his afternoon...' with a smiling sweat emoji to follow it. You can see the tweet below.

Nothing like a bit of good banter between two huge rivals. We look forward to seeing if and what Spurs reply to it.

The tweet from Arsenal has been retweeted nearly 2,000 times in less than an hour.
