Here is a selection of the best St Totteringham’s Day jokes as Arsenal finish above Spurs yet again, leapfrogging them into 2nd on the final day.

The Gunners beat Aston Villa 4-0 to ensure a higher Premier League finish than their north London rivals, who lost 5-1 at Newcastle, for the 21st consecutive season.

St Totteringham’s Day celebrates the point whereby Spurs can no longer finish ahead of Arsenal, and this is the second time in recent memory that it’s happened in a dramatic final day twist.

In 2005-06, Tottenham spent much of the season in the top four before a dodgy lasagne laid several first-team players low for a defeat at West Ham that allowed Arsenal to pip them to Champions League qualification at the death.

With Spurs now contriving to finish third despite having come the closest to challenging Leicester for the title, there were even a few famous faces getting in on the St Totteringham’s Day jokes:

Aaaaand Spurs are back.

Think season can (genuinely) be summedup by saying that despite giving it a really good shot, we couldn't quite manage to finish below Spurs

I'm not getting Spurs fans anything for St Totteringham's Day next year. I gave them a bottle this year and they've already lost it.

We recommend all Spurs WAGs learn the Heimlich Maneuver as it is noted the players do seem to choke quite often.

11 – Number of ambulances currently at St James' Park to deal with a severe case of choking. Spurs.

"It was St Totteringham's day as Harry Kane looked out his kitchen window. He knew it. His mother knew it.
He pushed away his toast…"
