Graham Roberts delivers Twitter verdict as Tottenham ease past rivals Arsenal
By Will Butcher
Graham Roberts believes Tottenham “made easy work” of their victory over north London rivals Arsenal on Sunday afternoon at White Hart Lane.
Spurs secured their 23rd league win of the season by cruising past Arsene Wenger’s Gunners at White Hart Lane, thanks to goals from in-form England duo Harry Kane and Dele Alli.
Former Spurs star Roberts claimed on his personal Twitter account that Mauricio Pochettino’s side found the game easy against Arsenal, stating “what a side”.

Kane and Alli’s quickfire double in the second half saw Spurs close the gap back to four points between themselves and Premier League leaders Chelsea at the top of the table.
Chelsea had previously eased past Everton at Goodison Park by three goals to nil, stretching their lead to seven points and piling all the pressure on Spurs to keep up with them.

However, Pochettino’s side found no difficulty in getting behind the Gunners defence, as they had plenty of chances to go and score more goals in both the first half and second half.
Spurs must now concentrate on Friday night’s London derby against West Ham at the London Stadium, with three points enough to move to within one point of Chelsea.
All eyes will then switch to Stamford Bridge on May 8, as Chelsea play host to relegation threatened Middlesbrough in west London.
