Arsenal made a sly dig at their arch rivals Tottenham Hotspur on their official website by mocking the lack of trophies Tottenham have won.

The message has since been deleted, with the Gunners claiming it was an individual error however fans noticed it as they entered the online club shop.

Supporters spotted that if nothing had been added to the online basket on the store, a message would come up which would read: “Your basket is as empty as Tottenham’s trophy cabinet.”

The Gunners have since confirmed that the message was written by an employee without any sufficient checks and that they hadn’t been hacked.

A statement read: “This was posted to the site in error without appropriate checks and approvals and is being removed as quickly as possible.”

Arsenal fans found the funny side of it however, with one supporter tweeting: “Whoever put in on there , give him a statue at the Emirates.”

Another supporter said: “I’d just leave it there tbh, not like it’s talking rubbish, it’s the truth.”

Meanwhile one other fan tweeted: “Someone has been pissing about on their last day.”

Last year, paint company Dulux, who were sponsors of Spurs, also took a dig at Tottenham by posting a tweet mocking the club’s ’empty trophy cabinet’  before quickly deleting their post.
