Tottenham fans react on Twitter as Chelsea overtake them in the table
By Emma Sanders
Tottenham fans reacted with disappointment on Twitter after Chelsea’s 4-0 victory against Manchester United moved them above Spurs in the Premier League table.
It was a frustrating weekend for Tottenham fans as their side threw away a great opportunity to move to the top of the league table on Saturday lunch-time.
With Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool all due to play later on in the weekend, Tottenham could have gone top if they had claimed three points against Bournemouth.
However, they were held to a frustrating goalless draw and victories from Liverpool and Chelsea meant they dropped out of the Champions League qualification spots and into fifth place.
A surprising 4-0 victory for Chelsea on Sunday afternoon rubbed further salt into the wounds as Antonio Conte’s side leap-frogged Tottenham into fourth place.

Spurs remain unbeaten in the Premier League but after picking up three consecutive draws in all competitions against West Brom, Bayer Leverkusen and Bournemouth, fans are starting to get frustrated.
They sit just one point off the top of the table, level on goal difference with Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side but they should perhaps have been higher up the league.
Tottenham fans certainly think so and following Chelsea’s victory, there was a lot of frustration on social media.
Here is a selection of the messages on Twitter:
Unbeaten in the league and not in the top 4. Tottenham Hotspur ladies and gentlemen
