Many Arsenal fans have slammed comments made by Tottenham Hotspur man Dele Alli after he told Copa90 (via Daily Mirror) that he thinks the rivalry his club has with Chelsea is bigger than with the Gunners.
The 24-year old thinks that if you ask the supporters they will give you a different answer, but as players, the way things have been going with the league and the games, he believes that the rivalry with the Blues is bigger because of what they have done to the Lilywhites in recent years. He did add that the North London derby is massive, but iterated that the rivalry with Chelsea is greater for players.
Indeed, Frank Lampard’s side have done the double over Spurs in the Premier League, winning 2-1 at Stamford Bridge and beat them 2-0 away. However, THFC managed to earn a 2-2 draw at the Emirates with the reverse fixture yet to be played.
Nevertheless, these Gooners slammed the English international’s comments on Twitter:
Stop this video and plz change the title . No one cares what Alli says

Dele Alli needs to stay in his lane.
Chelsea hate Tottenham more than any club but even they acknowledge the vast majority of Tottenham fans will always hate Arsenal more.

We won PL 13 time and they twice . We won it twice in white hart lane more then his team.
I don’t think there should be Rivalry with a small team like his own…..

He only says that because he hasn’t beaten us in the league in ages 😂
