Tottenham Hotspur opened their £1billion new stadium yesterday with a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace, moving back to third position in the Premier League table and keeping their top-four hopes alive as a result.
Spurs’ north London neighbours and bitter rivals Arsenal, who have a game in hand will return to third place with a win at Everton on Sunday, and the race to finish in top-four and above the other between them promises to be fierce.
While Tottenham fans and the club are delighted to have finally moved to a new ground after a long delay, Arsenal chief photographer Stuart MacFarlane isn’t particularly impressed, and he was quick to remind them of a particular “mistake” in one of the commemorative spots of the old White Hart Lane pitch.

The Gunners won their last Premier League title at White Hart Lane following a 2-2 draw in the North London derby, and that marked the second time they had been crowned league champions at their rivals’ ground: the first time had been in 1971.
MacFarlane wasn’t going to allow an opportunity to have a dig at Tottenham pass, and he quickly brought out a historic picture from his archive to taunt them.
Arsenal fans will surely love the reaction of the legendary photographer, and they just can’t wait to celebrate a likely St Totteringham’s Day again
