Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and former striker Lukas Podolski poked fun at Tottenham after a last-day meltdown at Newcastle United meant they once again finished below the Gunners in the Premier League.

Spurs have finished above every side in the league, apart from north London rivals Arsenal, since Arsene Wenger arrived in north London 20 years ago.

But they looked set to change that this season as they challenged Leicester City at the top of the Premier League.

However, Mauricio Pochettino’s men picked up just one point from the last 12 available to them, gifting Leicester the title and opening the door for Arsenal fans to celebrate ‘St Totteringham’s Day’ once again.

Szczesny, who has sp

Arsenal hammered relegated Aston Villa 4-0 on Sunday, while Tottenham rounded off their season in miserable fashion, going down 5-1 at Championship-bound Newcastle United.

Podolski also got in on the act, referencing the final day of the 2005-06 season, when Spurs lost on the final day to give Arsenal a top-four finish – their defeat to West Ham attributed to a food sickness bug brought on by lasagne.

“Happy St. Totteringham’s Day,” he posted on Twitter. “I’m having Lasagne for dinner.”
