Arsenal fans force Nuno to walk out of post-match interview
The miserable evening endured by Tottenham Hotspur manager Nuno Espirito Santo carried into his post-match media duties on Sunday.
Arsenal 3-1 Tottenham
Nuno of course guided Spurs into their latest North London Derby clash a short time ago, the first of the Portuguese’s stint in the English capital.
The Lilywhites entered proceedings nothing short of desperate for a positive result, having seen their positive opening to the campaign come crashing down in successive 3-0 defeats at the hands of Crystal Palace and Chelsea.
Upon the final whistle sounding at the Emirates, though, it proved more of the same from a stuttering Tottenham outfit.
Goals from all of Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka saw Arsenal storm into a 3-0 lead inside 35 minutes, with Heung-min Son’s fine late finish, when all was said and done, having proven little more than a consolation.

Gunners make their presence known
As outlined above, though, the woes of Spurs’ under-fire new boss, the subject of dismissal calls on the part of the club’s supporters this evening, did not end with simply the concerning result in North London.
On the back of the full-time whistle, Nuno made his way pitch-side, to conduct an interview with Sky Sports.
The home support still in attendance at the Emirates, in turn, made use of the opportunity to take aim at the Portuguese, courtesy of a torrent of chants and insults.
And Nuno, understandably in no mood for the antics of the Gunners faithful, therefore swiftly opted to walk out of the media exchange.
Sure enough Nuno has walked away from his TV interview because the Arsenal fans were giving him stick. Don’t blame him. Totally unworkable.
