By Harry Sykes
Tottenham fans reacted with delight on Twitter after Sunday’s results ended with their side just one point behind Arsenal in the Premier League table.
Spurs began the week seven points behind their bitter rivals in the league but have closed the gap by six points following a turnaround in fortunes.
Arsenal followed up their 2-1 defeat at Everton on Tuesday by losing to the same score in Sunday’s clash at Manchester City.
By contrast, Tottenham beat bottom-of-the-table duo Hull and Burnley by scores of 3-1 and 2-1 respectively to secure six points in four days.
Arsenal are fourth in the table with a haul of 34 points from 17 matches, while Spurs have taken 33 points from their 17 games to cement their place in fifth.
