The best Tweets from Tottenham 2 – Arsenal 1

It was a keenly contested north London derby and Tottenham came out with the bragging rights on Sunday thanks to two quick-fire goals against Arsenal at the end of the first half from Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon.

Spurs fans could be forgiven for thinking it was de ja vu when Arsenal pulled a goal back through Per Mertesacker at the start of the second half, with two heavy Emirates defeats fresh in the memory after picking up early leads.

As a result, Spurs go seven points clear of their great north London rivals, into third but have to negotiate a tricky trip to Liverpool in a week’s time.

Arsenal meanwhile will concentrate on the second leg at Bayern Munich in the Champions League and face up to the now very real prospect of a first season without Champions League football under Arsene Wenger.

Here are the best Tweets from an engaging north London derby.
