Tottenham were going to live-tweet their u18’s match against Arsenal on Saturday, but didn’t bother after the Young Guns started scoring for fun.
Arsenal and Tottenham came together in a youth North London derby on Saturday morning.
The Tottenham Twitter account had promised that there would be team news and live updates of the match.
We're at London Colney this morning for our U18s' match at Arsenal. Team news, HT and FT updates to follow… #COYS

However, they chose not to fulfil that promise, likely because Arsenal’s boys thrashed Spurs’.
Arsenal were 4-0 up at half-time thanks to a brace from Bukayo Saka and goals from the returning Trae Coyle and Xavier Amaechi.
It got worse for them in the second half, as Matt Smith and Amaechi added two more to the scoreline.
Even though it was only a youth game, the Arsenal fans didn’t let an opportunity to have a pop at Tottenham go by.
When you're ready lads…

Arsenal, of course, defeated the Tottenham senior 2-0 last week to remind everyone that the red half of North London is still alive and kicking.
Talk of Spurs surpassing Arsenal is evidently premature, especially at youth level.
The u18s are now up to third in the u18 Premier League South, seven points above Spurs.
However, they are still a sizeable eight points behind league leaders Chelsea.
