BRIGHTON’S social media admin couldn’t help but poke fun at the expense of Arsenal and Spurs, after beating both in a week.
Last weekend, the Seagulls dented the Gunners’ hopes of a top four finish by winning 2-1 at the Emirates – ending a run of seven games without a win.
Then, today they returned to North London to face off against an in-form Tottenham side, vying for a Champions League place with rivals Arsenal.
Graham Potter’s side beat Spurs 1-0 thanks to a 90th minute Leandro Trossard winner in the lunchtime kick off.
And Brighton’s Twitter account was certainly full of glee about their last seven days.
They wrote, “North London is ours” followed by a winking emoji to celebrate their monumental week.
Amusingly, Potter saw the funny side of Brighton putting a spanner in the works for both team’s Champions League aspirations.
He joked with Sky Sports: “It was only fair that if we beat Arsenal, we have to go to Spurs and beat them.”
Tottenham’s defeat left the door open for Arsenal to draw level on points with Antonio Conte’s side, as they faced off against Southampton later in the day.
However, Mikel Arteta’s team fell to defeat for a third successive time 1-0 at the St Mary’s Stadium.
The defeat leaves Tottenham in fourth, three points above Arsenal with a game in hand.
While Manchester United also got themselves back into contention – defeating Norwich 3-2 at Old Trafford, and moving into fifth on goal difference level on points with the Gunners.
