‘Deserved To Lose’ Arsenal Fans React to Tottenham Defeat On Twitter

Don’t say I didn’t warn you. In a recent article I talked about three of the most dangerous Tottenham players (see: http://wp.me/p3CM1b-2Vf) and unfortunately for Arsenal my predictions came true. Both Christian Eriksen and Jan Vertonghen were at the forefront of their game for Spurs today, but it was Harry Kane who showed us exactly how and why he’s the toast of Tottenham!

After Mesut Özil’s glorious eleventh minute goal the Gunners managed to cling onto the lead until the eleventh minute of the second half. With half time stats showing possession at 63% to the home team and three shots on target this was no mean feat. Spurs were all over the Gunners like a rash during the majority of the second half. In the 56th minute David Ospina palmed the ball out from a Tottenham corner kick and it landed at the feet of Harry Kane. The rest, as the saying goes, is history; the score: 1-1. Spurs were relentless in their attack and Arsenal did their best to fend them off. But 30 minutes after equalising the ball fell to Harry Kane and he headed it into the top corner of the net to take them ahead. Arsenal fought back but Spurs parried well. Final score 2:1.

In my opinion, the loss could’ve been worse. Yes, Ospina let in two goals but he also made a string of fine saves. Defensively Arsenal played well, considering the pressure they were put under, but were weak in their attack. Seems like I wasn’t the only one …

And on a final note, even God joined in the banter on Kane’s performance today:
