Spurs 5 Southampton 1
Following the previous weekend’s victory at Anfield Spurs had gone out of the UEFA Cup despite a scoreless draw against Real Madrid in Spain but they returned to winning ways at White Hart Lane with a convincing victory over Southampton. The goals came from Ossie Ardiles, Mark Falco, Glenn Hoddle, Garth Crooks and Garry Brooke.

At this point of the season, Spurs looked set for a challenge for the League title but their home form deserted them and of the next six home League games they won only one, losing the others.
They eventually finished third on 77 points, thirteen points behind Champions, Everton, and missing second place to Liverpool on goal difference. Throughout the season they lost 11 League games, seven of them at home while the four away defeats were during September and October.
