Arsenal fans took great delight on Twitter as Tottenham crashed out of the Champions League on Tuesday evening at the group stage.
Mauricio Pochettino watched his side fall to a a 2-1 defeat in Monaco with goals from Djibril Sidibe and Thomas Lemar cancelling out a Harry Kane penalty.
The defeat left the north London side placed in third and three points behind Bayer Leverkusen in second, who earned a 1-1 draw in Russia against CSKA Moscow.
Despite the three point gap, Spurs are now out due to the head-to-head ruling, as they suffered a 1-0 defeat and a 0-0 draw during their two clashes against the German outfit.
Now Arsenal fans have been keen to express their joy on social media, with many seeing it as akin to a victory for their own side.
Here are a selection of their messages on Twitter:
