Arsenal fans have taken to social media to celebrate the fact that their team has guaranteed a finish above Tottenham in the Premier League this season. This is the first time since the 2015/16 season, which was Mikel Arteta’s final campaign as a player.

The celebration comes after Arsenal drew with Southampton 3-3 on Friday night. While fans were disappointed with the result, they were happy that the point earned in that game meant finishing ahead of Tottenham.

St Totteringham’s Day is the name given to the day on which it becomes mathematically impossible for Tottenham to finish above Arsenal in the Premier League. It is a time of celebration for Arsenal fans, who find themselves in a position to gloat about the superiority of their team as officially confirmed by the composition of the league table.

Arsenal are currently in a title race as they are first on the Premier League table with 75 points after 32 games. However, they are closely followed by second-placed Manchester City, which has 70 points plus two games in hand.

Despite this, Arsenal fans are still taking time to celebrate their team’s achievement over Tottenham. Social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram have been flooded with posts from Arsenal fans celebrating St Totteringham’s Day.

Some fans have shared memes and jokes about Tottenham’s inability to finish above Arsenal, while others have shared photos and videos of themselves celebrating with friends and family.

The rivalry between Arsenal and Tottenham is one of the fiercest in English football. For many years, Tottenham had been seen as inferior to Arsenal, but in recent years, they have closed the gap between the two teams.

However, this season, Arsenal has once again asserted its dominance over Tottenham. While Arsenal fans may not be able to celebrate a title win just yet, they can still take pride in the fact that their team has finished above their bitter rivals.

In conclusion, Arsenal fans have taken to social media to celebrate St Totteringham’s Day after their team guaranteed a finish above Tottenham in the Premier League this season. While they may not have won the title just yet, Arsenal fans can still take pride in their team’s achievement over their bitter rivals.

I enjoy football so much and I am in love with Arsenal Football Club. I always watch the matches and will always give you my opinions about the game here.
