Spurs mocked by rival fans for what they did after win against Burnley

‘I can’t believe it’

Spurs fans have been mocked by rival supporters for holding a lap of honour after their win against Burnley on Saturday.

Usually at the end of each season it’s customary for clubs to do a lap of appreciation on their final home game of the season to show their thanks to the supporters who have backed them.

Ange Postecoglou’s side still have one more home game to play against Manchester City, which if they win, could put north London rivals Arsenal in pole position to win the Premier League.

They also need to win to keep their slim hopes of qualifying for the top four alive, although that could be over before they’ve kicked a ball if Aston Villa beat Liverpool.

With a job still to do, Arsenal fans are raging that Spurs decided to do their lap of appreciation against Burnley.

One fan wrote on X: “Don’t you have Manchester City at home on Tuesday? What are you doing? Keep this lap of honour for Tuesday when you beat City.

“This the worst football team have seen. You have Manchester City on Tuesday and you are saying farewell,” commented another.

“Nah this is next level hatred for Arsenal. Spurs have another home game on Tuesday but have decided to do their end of season lap of honour today,” said a third.

Another added: “Spurs have given up already. They know they‚Äôre getting battered by city.

“I can’t believe it!”

Tottenham come from behind to relegate Clarets

Tottenham had to come from behind to secure the win as Burnley took the lead through Jacob Bruun Larsen in the 25th minute, only for Pedro Porro to equalise seven minutes later.

Micky van de Ven spared the hosts’ blushes with eight minutes to go and grabbed the winner which keeps Spurs in the hunt for the top four and confirmed Burnley’s immediate relegation back to the Championship.
