Arsenal fan's tweet three years ago mocking Spurs for 'playing a team called Qarabag' comes back to haunt themDecember 13, 2018
Unai Emery's side host their Azerbaijani opponents at the Emirates in a meaningless Europa League clash.
The Gunners have already booked their spot in the knockout stages of the European competition.
Spurs, meanwhile, miraculously secured a 1-1 away draw at Barcelona to reach the knockout stages of the Champions League.
And a tweet sent out three years ago by an Arsenal fan has resurfaced to provide some humour between the two London clubs.
A Twitter user called "The Arsenal" posted back on September 17, 2015: "Whenever you feeling down, just remember Spurs are playing a team called Qarabag tonight."
They followed this with an emoji of a smiley face crying tears of laughter.
The poster paid credit, albeit probably through gritted teeth, to "the Spurs fan who gave me stick for this tweet".
Since it was first highlighted back in August, a steady flow of football fans, many revelling in the glory as Spurs fans, have commented on the post.
"This aged well", "ouch" and "right back at you" were just some of the witty replies.
