Arsenal mocked following Arsene Wenger's 'third trophy' comments
Tottenham fans, never known for missing the opportunity to mock their north London rivals Arsenal, will have enjoyed picking up on Arsene Wenger's comments about qualifying for the Champions League.
The Gunners manager said that finishing fourth in the Premier League, and therefore qualifying for Europe's elite competition, was like a trophy - one more important than the FA and League Cups.
"For me, there are five trophies: the first is to win the Premier League, the second is to win the Champions League, the third is to qualify for the Champions League, the fourth is to win the FA Cup and the fifth is to win the League Cup," he said.
Arsenal have famously gone seven years without winning any silverware - but according to Wenger's logic - they've actually picked up quite a few trophies since the FA Cup in 2005. And to prove it, a mock-up of the Arsenal trophy cabinet has been created by talkSPORT to reflect this (above).
There have also been suggestions that Arsenal will have to make alterations at the Emirates Stadium. Wrapped around the inside of the ground are references to all the trophies in Arsenal's history, including their 13 top flight titles and 10 FA Cups. They will now need to add all the second, third and fourth place finishes in the league.
