Looking at this video, it is really tough to control the laughter. Even Rob Holding was like, “C’mon Mate” but it was all good. The team had secured a crucial win. Such light-hearted moments are the need of the day when you play regular high-pressure football.
Also, this showcases a good amount of unity and bonding between the players. Joking and fooling around after a win is only possible when the players are well gelled and for that, Mikel Arteta does deserve all the praise that he can get.
Both these players will want to replicate some of the best forms in the games that follow. Each win will push them closer to a top-four finish and they will want to secure that Champions League spot. Tottenham will try their best to win their matches too and this surely will be a close fight till the end.
