Tottenham Hotspur managed to close the gap on Chelsea to 4 points (well, at least temporarily) in what is growing into an absolutely thrilling English Premier League title race. Spurs are well within their powers to catch up on Chelsea and that could begin from Sunday if the Blues lose to Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United. The Lilywhites managed to do their job of keeping the pressure up on Chelsea by thrashing Bournemouth by a 4-0 margin.
Mousa Dembele, Son Heung-min, Harry Kane, and Vincent Janssen were all on target as Spurs eased their way past the Cherries. It was rather encouraging to see both Kane and Janssen score, as Harry just returned from his injury against Watford. Janssen has been struggling all season but somehow managed to get himself a morale boosting goal, as Spurs continue to impress everyone with their performances week in week out.
With the focus of Tottenham completely being on Chelsea, the fans shifted their focus during the game, to a hopeless on-loan Arsenal midfielder. Bournemouth’s Jack Wilshere is quite a famous personality in London and is well known for his so-called ‘Arsenal DNA’ (whatever that means). The midfielder has never shied away from taking a dig at Tottenham and it looked like it backfired on him today.
The Englishman was taken off in the 56th minute due to an injury and Tottenham fans laid into him. They mocked at him during the game, and a lot of fans took Twitter to express their thoughts on Wilshere and we managed to gather a few interesting tweets.

Spurs fans are barbaric, singing at poor Jack Wilshere after his injury. The poor little mite never did anything to provoke anyone. pic.twitter.com/UjJLEUisnQ

Wilshere feigning injury to get substituted at 3-0 down, he’s not fit to lace the boots of Gazza, Dele or anyone else who puts on our shirt.

While it is certain that a player like Jack Wilshere, who has always talked a lot about Tottenham in the past, doesn’t deserve good treatment from the Spurs fans, it isn’t probably a right thing to mock at a player when he goes off injured. It is always sad when a player gets injured as he has to go through a lot of mental struggle to overcome it. Football is football at the end of the day and respect is the ultimate beauty of this game.
It would be better if the fans turn the heat on him at the end of the season when Tottenham finish above Arsenal.
