Spurs Players Celebrate Arsenal's Loss With A Game Of Fortnite

Antoine Griezmann celebrated his goal against Arsenal last week with a dance from Fortnite and only a week later and the Spurs players were happily enjoying a game when Arsenal's loss in the Europa League was happening.

When Manchester United lost to West Brom a few weeks ago to hand their rivals Manchester City the title Pep Guardiola wasn't glued to the television waiting for his rivals demise, instead he was on the golf course enjoying himself.

So on Thursday night as Arsenal were being knocked out of the Europa League, denying Arsene Wenger his fairytale ending after 22 years at the club, Spurs players wouldn't have been expected to be tuning in.

Instead Kieran Trippier, Dele Alli and Harry Kane were sat on their computers enjoying Fortnite and holding their tongues about saying anything as they were warned they were being streamed:

It seems the players expected right back Trippier to be the one to slip up and say something a bit naughty but I can't be the only one who thinks that Dele Alli would be more likely to say something 'incriminating.'

Of course Arsenal's downfall against Atlei was kicked off with a bit of Fortnite. Laurent Koscielny kicked the ball in his own face giving Antoine Griezmann the chance to score and level the game in London at 1-1, despite the away side playing with 10 men for around 80 minutes.

The draw gave Arsenal a really difficult task in the away leg, needing to score and hoping that Diego Simeone's side wouldn't. Instead it was Atleti was grabbed the goal with the Gunners' usual menace Diego Costa bagging on the stroke of half time.

It was Arsene Wenger's last chance at success in his final season as Arsenal manager and it means that whoever takes over will not be playing in the Champions League next season.

There was bad news for Laurent Koscielny last night as the French defender was stretchered off in the first half with an achilles injury and he will now miss the World Cup this summer.

He will at least have the chance to right this season's wrongs next year. For Wenger it's the end of the line and his last three games as Arsenal manager will have a limp feel to them.

Au revoir and goodbye.
