Football fans are a funny breed, with logic and sense never really a thought process close to the surface. Despite the fact Tottenham Hotspur will finish above Arsenal, have the PFA Young Player of the Season, the Premier League’s top scorer and aren’t a fanbase full of infighting, it didn’t stop Gooners taking the chance to mock the Lilywhites for all but conceding the title to Leicester City.
Once the sour taste left by the West Brom draw subsides, Spurs will reflect on a very successful season, with lots of positives for the future. Whilst Arsenal will rue missed opportunities and, yet again, be questioning the direction the club is going.
Is the power-shift in north London a permanent one, though?

Tottenham are relentless, energetic and powerful across their whole starting XI, all traits that you’d relate to Arsene Wenger’s pre-2005 Arsenal sides. Whereas now, the Gunners are a side that lacks leaders, lacks drive and lacks that fearlessness that is required to be successful; they’ve stagnated.
Spurs are set for the next step up the footballing ladder when they move into their new stadium, and if they can manage the next few years as well as Wenger managed Arsenal’s move to the Emirates Stadium, then they will certainly be a force to be reckoned with.
Le Professeur will probably step aside after the final year of his contract, so another season like this no doubt awaits the Arsenal faithful. Whether the power-shift is a long-term one, though, all depends on who the Gunners bring in and whether the Lilywhites can keep hold of Mauricio Pochettino.
