The final time Tottenham finished above Arsenal was in 1995, when they came seventh and a Gunners were 12th.

BBC Sport’s arch football author Phil McNulty

St Totteringham’s Day is a hideous day of jubilee used by Arsenal fans to inflict annual wretchedness on north London rivals Spurs.

It is a day in a calendar when Spurs can no longer finish above Arsenal in a Premier League, and has been a flourishing tradition given Arsenal final finished a deteriorate subsequent their neighbours from White Hart Lane in 1994-95.

Spurs ensured this year’s St Totteringham’s Day was cancelled with a convincing win that means they can't be overtaken by a Gunners – though does it meant a change of energy in north London has now comprehensively shifted?

Trailing 17 points behind Spurs, a justification to advise so is compelling, though Wenger can offer dual convincing counter-arguments, notwithstanding saying his group captivated and outplayed.

Despite their form in new years, Tottenham’s final prize was a 2008 League Cup

Wenger righteously points out it will take some-more than one deteriorate each 22 years to symbol a permanent shift, while Arsenal are a usually group in north London with a picturesque possibility of winning a prize this deteriorate as they ready for an FA Cup final opposite Chelsea during Wembley on 27 May.

Arsenal kick Manchester City 2-1 after additional time in their semi-final, a day after Spurs mislaid 4-2 in theirs.

And, even in what have been regarded as Wenger’s idle years, Arsenal still claimed a FA Cup in 2014 and 2015, while Spurs’ final prize was a League Cup in 2008.

So it depends on context – and maybe that group we foster – when determining either there has been a change in power.

In discernible terms, it is still probable for Arsenal to have a some-more successful deteriorate – this stately Spurs side have nonetheless to spin stately guarantee into silverware – though remove a FA Cup final and finish outward a tip 4 with no Champions League football subsequent season, and there is usually one leader in this internal rivalry.

In a brief and prolonged term, however, this Spurs group demeanour a many improved tender than Arsenal for success.

Pochettino, during 45, is regarded as one of a game’s superb immature managers, good capable in a complicated methods, put into use by a maturing, powerful, physical, enterprising side.

Wenger, 67, is still surrounded by a doubt over his destiny and if he stays during Arsenal – a many expected outcome – faces a critical reconstruct of a group that looks flimsy, not mentally clever adequate and too mostly let down by a supposed chosen players such as Mesut Ozil, who did a disintegrating act during White Hart Lane. All those flaws were unprotected by Spurs.

Spurs contingency build on a undoubted leverage of their group subsequent deteriorate to emphasize their prevalence – though for now they demeanour a group gentle with themselves while Arsenal and Wenger demeanour lost.

St Totteringham’s Day has been cancelled this year. If a same happens in 12 months’ time afterwards maybe that energy change in north London will be genuine and long-lasting.
