Tottenham star makes fun of Arsenal after Brighton draw (SEE DETAILS)

Tottenham defender Jan Vertonghen poked fun at Arsenal after a 1-1 draw with Brighton and Hove Albion handed Spurs a massive advantage in the race for a top-four Premier League finish. Spurs lost 1-0 at Bournemouth on Saturday, with Son Heung-min and Juan Foyth sent off, and their defeat had boosted Arsenal’s hopes of claiming the final Champions League qualification place.

Spurs, who host Everton on the final day of the season, have a three-point cushion from their north London rivals, as well as an eight-goal advantage on goal difference.

Arsenal’s slip was also good news for Chelsea, who beat Watford earlier in the day, with the Blues’ return to the Champions League confirmed thanks to a little help from Brighton.
