Tottenham 'fan' spotted wearing Arsenal shirt under Spurs kit during North London Derby

Spurs fan

During Sunday's fiery North London Derby, a Spurs supporter was caught in a bit of a kit kerfuffle, sporting an Arsenal shirt beneath their Tottenham top.

The fan, who had made the journey to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, donned a Spurs jersey with 'Son 7' emblazoned on the back. Yet, it was the peek of an 'Odegaard 8' Arsenal shirt underneath that raised eyebrows among the crowd.

This fashion faux pas set social media ablaze, with supporters expressing their shock and amusement at the dual allegiance. Piers Morgan couldn't resist chiming in with a quip: "Proof that inside every poor little Spurs fan is a Gooner desperate to get out!"

One disheartened fan lamented: "The way the Premier League has gone, unfortunately," before another chimed in, questioning the intensity of the rivalry: "And we get told this is the fiercest derby in Britain!"

Others found humour in the situation, with one fan speculating: "This is hilarious... He must be an Arsenal fan inside, but came to support his national team player." Meanwhile, another simply stated: "Sorry but turning up to the North London Derby like this is wild!"

On the field, Arsenal quickly took control with goals from Bukayo Saka and Kai Havertz, coupled with an own goal by Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg. Despite a second-half rally from Spurs, with strikes from Cristian Romero and Son Heung-min, the Gunners held firm to secure a triumphant return to the Emirates Stadium with all three points.

After the match, Mikel Arteta said: "They're going to have a real go. We have proved we can handle this stage of the season better than last year. The margins are so small. I was praying at the end. There were so many Spurs players in the box. It was a really emotional game. 100 per cent the players are going to fight until the very end."

With strong faith in his team, he added: "I've seen that the whole season. They give me the reason to believe that every single day. We are right on it. The motivation for what is ahead is beautiful. We are all expecting that they're going to have a real go."
