2. Arsenal fan destroys Lacazette’s shirt after defeat to Tottenham
There are hundreds of reasonable reactions to watching your football team lose to their bitter rivals. Swearing loudly, locking yourself in a darkened room, going for a walk; or even just getting over it because it is only a game. But burning a shirt you bought, sounds extreme reasonable.

Lacazette has netted just nine times in 29 appearances; a new low coming against Tottenham in the north London derby on Saturday. The 26-year-old squandered a pair of relatively simple chances in the twilight moments of the match which has led to shirts being burnt.
1. Arsenal will stay in Tottenham’s shadow until Wenger is replaced
1-0 winners Tottenham have got bigger things to worry about now than finishing above Arsenal. Namely, being in top four; having this Champions League tie with Juventus on Tuesday night; and staying alive in the FA cup.
Pochettino’s statement says it all; “Arsenal are our sworn enemy and I know what the derby means but we don’t care if Arsenal are behind us.”
John Cross from the Mirror thinks; “Arsenal could buy a new centre-half and holding midfielder in the summer and yet the problem will be the same.
“Expensive January signings Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitaryan have been brought in, but if the club is really to move forward then they also have to change the manager.”
