IT WOULD NOT be a true Arsenal victory parade without Jack Wilshere having a go at North London rivals Spurs.

The 23-year-old, who has come through the youth ranks at Arsenal, grabbed the microphone to address fans at the Emirates Stadium and, just like he did after last year’s victory against Hull City, started an insulting chant about Spurs.

“What do we think of Tottenham?”, Wilshere asked the crowd, who replied: “Sh*t”.

Wilshere then asked: “What do we think of sh*t?”, to which the fans yelled: “Tottenham!”

The England international then started another explicit chant about a taxi driver, at which point Arsenal Player stopped its coverage from the Emirates.

Today’s celebrations were attended by thousands of fans, including many young children. Wilshere, who came on as a substitute in the 4-0 victory over Aston Villa at Wembley, may face disciplinary action for the taunts.
