The Barclays Premier League has been as dramatic as one can remember in the recent past. From fairytale underdog stories to remarkable comebacks, the season often looked like a story scripted by the hand of the Almighty himself. And there was no reason the final day would be any different. Historically, with origins that could be traced back to 2005, St. Totteringham's Day is a day which celebrates Arsenal overtaking Tottenham Hotspur in the league table. In a season where the performance of these North London neighbors and rivals have borne much contrast, and Arsenal fans had all but given up hope of celebrating the occasion this year. But the Spurs' capacity to self-destruct finally overwhelmed them when they came out on the football pitch at St. James's Park for the final game of the season away from home against Newcastle United.

Arsenal, having started off well, collapsed completely as the season went along, producing a series of sluggish performances, and drawing criticism for their uninspired and unpredictable brand of football. In fact, the Gunners looked to be in serious trouble trying to book a spot in Europe for the next season with a top 4 finish. It looked like the North London rivals would finally have their share of sweet revenge for the last 22 years, the duration for Camisetas De Fútbol Baratas which the Spurs have never finished above the Gunners in the Premier League. But the result stunned supporters at White Hart Lane and Emirates alike as a sleeping Spurs team was blanked 5-1 by a Newcastle United side that is headed for the second tier next year after being relegated this year from the Premier League. Arsenal, on the other hand, trumped an already relegated Aston Villa side 4-0 to scramble a second-place finish after a disastrous season.

To much relief and amusement of the fans, scores took to Twitter, pointing out the inevitability of St. Totteringham's Day, which came on the final day of the Premier League this season. Arsenal, riding on the back of Oliver Giroud's hattrick, came out trumps in the home stretch, rising a point above Tottenham at 70 and finishing at 71. Georginio Wijnaldum scored a brace, with Aleksander Mitrovic, Rolando Aarons and Daryl Janmaat all finding the back of the net in their 5-1 rout of the Spurs. The consolation goal for the Tottenham came via Erik Lamela. The look of disbelief on young Tottenham forward Harry Kane's face at the end of the match probably told the complete story of the season finale of this year's Premier League. The off-season involves a lot of thinking for both Mauricio Pochettino and veteran Arsene Wenger, because oddly enough both teams are chokers at a certain level. And while Spurs have a squad brimming with youth and confidence, Wenger's Arsenal have seemed oddly misbalanced at different points in the games.
