Tottenham faithful call for Nuno’s head on back of Arsenal defeat

 

Tottenham Hotspur’s supporters have flooded to social media on Sunday, to call for the dismissal of Nuno Espirito Santo, just months into his stint with the club.

Nuno and co. of course returned to action a short time ago.

After seeing their positive opening to the campaign fall flat owing to a pair of successive 3-0 defeats at the hands of Crystal Palace and Chelsea, Spurs made the trip to the Emirates, for the latest edition of the North London Derby.

To say that when the 90 minutes were said and done that the woes of the visitors only deepened, though, would be something of an understatement.

An explosive first-half display on the part of Arsenal saw Mikel Arteta’s men race out to a 3-0 advantage inside 35 minutes, a haul which ultimately proved decisive.

Emile Smith Rowe was first on target, before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled the Gunners’ advantage in rounding out a stunning team move shortly before the half-hour mark:

Then, just when it appeared as though things couldn’t get any worse for Tottenham, the ever-lively Bukayo Saka made it three a short time later, to send the home support in attendance at the Emirates into delirium.

The visitors, to their credit, did manage to pull one back through Heung-min Son ten minutes from time, but, in the end, the South Korean’s strike proved little more than a consolation.

Arsenal, in turn, have remarkably climbed to within five points of the Premier League’s summit.

Nuno out?

At Spurs, on the other hand, the inquest will now get underway.

A whole host of the Lilywhites’ stars simply failed to step up to the occasion this evening, with the likes of Harry Kane and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg struggling to make any sort of telling impact on proceedings.

In turn, it should come as little surprise to hear that the club’s fanbase have since flooded to Twitter, to make their frustrations known.

It is not the players on display for the capital outfit on Sunday, however, who have come in for the brunt of the criticism.

Instead, the Spurs faithful have opted to direct their ire at boss Nuno Espritio Santo, with many having gone as far as to call for the Portuguese, appointed less than three months ago, to be replaced:
