Tottenham Hotspur fans take aim at Arsenal with ruthless new chant
A contrasting start
North London has been more divided than ever when it comes to the Premier League table so far this campaign. Tottenham, under new manager Nuno Espirito Santo, boast a perfect record after 3 1-0 wins, including an impressive result against Champions Manchester City.
The results have seen Santo pick up the Manager of the Month award for August, and his side are currently looking to make it 4 wins from 4 as they take on Crystal Palace.

Arsenal, by contrast, sit rock bottom of the Premier League table after three defeats, failing to even score a goal, and conceding nine in the process.
Despite spending the most money of any side in Europe this summer, the Gunners have found themselves on the end of 2-0 defeats to Chelsea and Brentford, as well as suffering a 5-0 humiliation at the hands of Manchester City in their most recent fixture.
In turn, pressure on Mikel Arteta is building, and a home match against Norwich (who sit level with Arsenal on zero points but have scored a goal) this weekend has suddenly become a must-win affair.
Tottenham fans take aim at the Gunners
After all the years of “mind the gap” and St Totteringham’s day (the day when Tottenham can no longer mathematically finish above the Gunners), Spurs fans have understandably been enjoying the reversal of fortunes, and have come up with a brutal new chant to demonstrate their happiness.
Unveiled during their game against Crystal Palace, and audible on TV coverage during the opening minutes, the Tottenham fans sung:
“Arsenal get battered, everywhere they go, everywhere they go”
