Meanwhile, in the Premier League, a draw with Manchester United and a defeat to Southampton leaves Unai Emery’s men in fifth place and five points behind Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
It will be a huge disappointment to the players and fans of Arsenal, especially after their celebrations following their north London derby win on December 2.
Such was the joy felt, midfielder Matteo Guendouzi was filmed hanging out of a car window, while the club have since filmed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette doing commentary on the 4-2 win.
But Spurs, in victory, haven shown their class with a fairly muted response in comparison and displayed what currently makes them the biggest team in their section of the English capital.
Their superstars posted celebratory pictures on their social media accounts, but nothing out of the ordinary other than Dele Alli.
The England midfielder posted a screenshot of his taunt towards Arsenal fans who had just pelted him with a bottle, but the rest, as can been seen below, were quite muted.
It showed a touch of class and went a long way to showing which club is currently the biggest in north London.
Arsenal, as shown by Guendouzi, acted as if the victory was a moment of cup final glory instead of focusing on cementing their grip on third spot. They lost concentration.
Results since have slipped, culminating in the Carabao Cup defeat, and their tails will be firmly between their collective legs.
After beating them last night, Danny Rose told the Evening Standard about the response the Gunners had inspired: “We were fully relishing the opportunity, he said.
“Our only motivation was remembering the nonsense that Arsenal posted after the game a few weeks ago. That was our motivation. Players that have only played 10 games for Arsenal were getting ahead of themselves. We used that in a positive way. It’s karma. They fully deserve what they got.
“We had the motivation of getting to the semi-final, so we’re over the moon. But the cherry on top was silencing them after remembering how they celebrated like they had won the league. We’ve put that result right. We’ll see where they are come the end of the season and we’ll see where we are.”
Arsenal’s stars may have beaten Tottenham in the Premier League with a brilliant performance but their subsequent form proves they could learn a lot from their rivals who remain the biggest team in north London right now.
