Arsenal u18 defender Harry Clarke posted a cheeky tweet mocking Tottenham Hotspur after his side came back from 2-0 down to defeat their North London rivals in injury time.

In a must-win game against their North London rivals, Arsenal found themselves 2-0 down with just five minutes to go. Two goals in three minutes brought the contest back to life before Ben Cottrell scored in injury time to complete the comeback, sending the Gunners four points clear at the top of the u18 Premier League table.

Arsenal fans started joking about how “Spursy” it all was, and a popular clip of Giorgio Chiellini talking about “the history of Tottenham” resurfaced. However, u18 defender Harry Clarke summed it up best in just a few characters:

Bottlejobs indeed. In five minutes, Tottenham went from having the league fully under their control, with a two-point lead over Arsenal and a game in hand, to having a four-point deficit and nothing to do but hope the Gunners drop points in their final two games.

Clarke deserves to have a bit of fun at Spurs’ expense too. He was moved from defensive midfield to centre-back in February after an injury to Bayli Spencer-Adams, and he’s helped the team to six wins in his six starts since then. Now he just needs to help Arsenal get a couple more, then the play-off final awaits!
