Arsenal attacker Theo Walcott has issued a brutal put-down of Tottenham on Twitter after their North London derby defeat on Saturday.

Spurs fell to a 2-0 defeat courtesy of first-half goals from Shkodran Mustafi and Alexis Sanchez, and that prompted Walcott, 28, to recall his previous taunts of Tottenham when beating them 2-0 in the past.

The England international said on his personal Twitter account: “Who would of thought.”

However it will be the choice of emojis that would have really got Spurs fans fuming as he replicated the same hand gestures he made to the Tottenham supporters back in 2014.

Walcott was not in the squad to play against Mauricio Pochettino’s side on Saturday, but reveled in the victory as much as his team-mates who were in Arsene Wenger’s side.

The ex-Southampton star has only made 10 appearances across all competitions for the Gunners this term with the bulk of them coming in the Europa League.

In those games he has been able to score three goals and supply two assists.

Saturday’s win for Arsenal saw them move within a point of Tottenham in the Premier League table, who look to have had their hopes of a league title well and truly killed off as Manchester City beat Leicester to move further ahead of the chasing pack.

In other Tottenham news, Gary Lineker has claimed what was “alarming” about the loss to Arsenal.
