Spurs were beaten 3-1 by Sheffield United to ensure the Gunners remain above them in the Premier League table with six games to play.
But there was something else the Arsenal fans were enjoying later in the night.
The late game was at the Etihad Stadium, where Manchester City ran out 4-0 winners over newly-crowned champions Liverpool.
Kevin de Bruyne scored the opener from the penalty spot, but crucially, for Gunners fans, and for Thierry Henry the Belgian only grabbed one assist.
De Bruyne is chasing Henry’s record of 20 assists in one season, with 17 currently to his name with now six games to play. He almost got one when he laid the ball on for Raheem Sterling to score what he thought was his second of the night, but former Arsenal player Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain slid in and diverted the ball into his own net, taking the goal away from Sterling and the assist away from de Bruyne.
And that got some Arsenal fans talking on Twitter.
@AFCAMDEN on Twitter said: “Oxlade Chamberlain protecting Henry’s assist record. You love to see it.”

And he was not the only one.
@VanHelsiingh said exactly the same thing: “Oxlade Chamberlain protecting Henry’s assist record. You love to see it…”
@LacaSweat also said, with a gif of Arsene Wenger: “Wenger sold Oxlade Chamberlain to Liverpool so he could score an own goal preventing Sterling scoring from a KDB assist to ensure KDB can’t break Thierry Henry’s assist record. Arsène Wenger has done it again.”
