The bragging rights tend to fall in to Arsenal’s hands more often than not in their North London rivalry with Tottenham. And their latest stunt awards them the last laugh yet again.
The Gunners’ and England forward Theo Walcott’s “2-0” gesture to the Spurs fans, as he was being stretchered from the field, has become somewhat of a cult. So much so that the official Arsenal merchandise stores are selling it as a t-shirt.

Spurs fans – in typical North London derby fashion – subjected the winger to a torrent of abuse when the side’s met in the Premier League last month. But one thing that could certainly shut them up Walcott’s scoreboard reminder as he held up two fingers and a fist to the away crowd. Much to the annoyance of those travelling supporters.
The score remains, Walcott 2 Spurs 0.
