Tottenham have been handed a major boost in their push to finish in fourth place in the Premier League table – as Arsenal lost 2-0 to Newcastle United. Henry Winter reported what the Toon fans sang to Arsenal, during the loss.
Arsenal needed to win to leapfrog Tottenham into fourth place, with Spurs beating Burnley on Sunday – and facing Norwich this weekend. But a Ben White own goal and a Bruno Guimaraes finish sees Spurs sit two ahead.
A huge result in the race for the top four, that means Tottenham are now pretty-much nailed on to get fourth – with Spurs taking on Norwich this weekend. The Toon crowd were in full voice on Monday night, party mode.
Indeed, Spurs need only a point to qualify for the Champions League – due to their massively superior goal difference. Times journalist Henry Winter reported what Newcastle fans sang to the Arsenal players, during the loss.
What Newcastle fans sang to Arsenal will delight Tottenham
It is an incredible achievement to be in this position for a Tottenham side that looked dead and buried towards the end of Nuno Espirito Santo’s tenure. Even at times, Spurs looked inconsistent under Conte.
But now, they need a point against rock-bottom Norwich to ensure they finish fourth. It gives them a huge advantage in the summer window, and also sees them avoid the dreaded Thursday-Sunday combination.
A huge night for both clubs, but at completely ends of the spectrum.
