Tottenham fans react on Twitter after Arsenal draw v Manchester City
By Dominic Toner
Arsenal recorded a draw at home to Manchester City on Sunday – and the Tottenham fans celebrated the result wildly on Twitter.
The Gunners fought back twice to earn a 2-2 draw, but that leaves them in sixth and has done nothing to enhance their top-four chances.
Meanwhile, fourth-placed Manchester City were unable to get back into the title race picture and leaves Spurs as the biggest competition to leaders Chelsea.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side saw results go their way over the weekend and that was helped by the fact they beat Burnley 2-0 at Turf Moor, with Eric Dier and Heung-Min Son on the scoresheet.
They are now seven points behind Chelsea and there is fresh belief they can beat them to the league title.

Draw is a great result for Spurs. Keeps distance between us and City, and leaves Arsenal in a nebulous spiral of misery #COYS

Spurs are growing in confidence after seeing their rivals slip up recently, but have been in good form themselves.
They have won their last five consecutive games across all competitions and are plotting a late charge towards the title.
Pochettino’s side were involved in the title picture last season alongside Leicester, but tailed off towards the back end of the season and will be looking for the complete opposite this time around.
Spurs fans are growing increasingly delighted with the struggles of rivals Arsenal who are now 11 points behind them, having played a game less.
