Dejan Kulusevski makes Arsenal fan eat dirt after Gooner starts ‘What do we think of Tottenham’ chant

Dejan Kulusevski makes Arsenal fan eat dirt after Gooner starts ‘What do we think of Tottenham’ chant

The Premier League’s North London rivalry between Arsenal and Tottenham has brought many memorable moments for football fans over the last few decades.

During the early 2000s, the Gunners clearly had the upper hand over the neighbours thanks to their domestic successes under Arsene Wenger.

The side managed to win multiple Premier Leagues and FA Cup titles and even reached the UCL final in 2006. Tottenham on the other hand have only a League Cup triumph from 2008 to showcase during this same period as their neighbours.

With Arsenal dominating the local rivalry, it was natural that the players and supporters made a point to emphasize the gulf in class between the two teams.

In perhaps the most iconic moment, Jack Wilshere led Gunners fans in an anti-Spurs chant during their FA Cup title celebrations in 2015 when he screamed, “What do you think of Tottenham? Sh*t. What do you think of sh*t? Tottenham!”

But the scenery has changed quite a bit since 2015 with Spurs growing in stature under Mauricio Pochettino and even reaching the UCL finals themselves in 2018 before Arsenal have since 2006. Both Arsenal and Spurs also seem to be fighting for the same goals for the past few seasons (UCL football) and this season, Spurs leapt over the Gunners to grab a top-4 spot.

Perhaps in a true reflection of the current state of the north London rivalry at the moment, an Arsenal supporter was heard shouting the x-rated chant towards Dejan Kulusevski when the Spurs forward was on the ball during Sweden’s game against Slovenia on Thursday.

However, unlike in 2015, the chant backfired completely as Kulusevski went to find the back of the net in stellar fashion after taking out two defenders and shooting from a tight angle and silencing the Arsenal supporter pitchside at the Stožice Stadium.

To add insult to injury, the Swedish international also celebrated by knee-sliding in front of the same stand.

Kulusevski has been a revelation for Spurs since arriving mid-season in January. His five goals and eight assists in just 14 appearances were vital for Antonio Conte’s men to secure Champions League football next season.

While the Swede had already gained the favour of Spurs fans through his productivity on the pitch, this unexpected putdown of a Gooner is bound to be a massive hit too.
