    Arsenal fans hailed "Agent Unai Emery" after he "schooled" Tottenham boss Antonio Conte in a 2-0 win for Aston Villa.

    Spurs got their 2023 off to the worst possible start on home turf as visitors Villa returned to the Midlands with all three Premier League points thanks to second-half goals from Emi Buendia and Douglas Luiz.

    And their north London rivals were loving that it was former Gunners boss Emery who put a dent in their hopes of a top four finish, which could be crucial to getting Conte to sign a new contract with his current deal expiring in the summer.

    One Arsenal supporter tweeted: "Agent Emery working his magic." A second echoed: "Unai Emery has never lost to Spurs in the Premier League. Happy New Year and Good Ebening to everyone. Agent Unai delivers."

    "Once a gooner… Shoutout to Unai Emery putting Conte in his place," commented a third, while a fourth wrote: "Unai Emery giving Conte some schooling."

    Who do you think will finish in the top four? Let us know in the comments section.

    A fifth posted: "This Unai Emery masterclass, completely outdone Conte at his own ground." And a sixth said: "Emery dunking on Conte and Ten Hag. That’s my ex-manager!"

    Tottenham are now two points adrift of fourth-placed Manchester United, who have played one game less than them. It's a stark contrast to Arsenal, who went seven points clear at the top of the table with their 4-2 win at Brighton yesterday (December 31).

    Competition is stiff for the top four spots, with the Gunners and Manchester City almost certain to occupy two of them. Newcastle sit third currently, but face the league leaders on Tuesday (January 3).

    Aside from Spurs, Liverpool and Chelsea are also looking to push on and secure Champions League football for next season.
