This is the last occasion that Spurs played on this day.
Spurs 1 Arsenal 0
Gary Stevens scored the only goal. It was the usual bruising, hectic, mile-a-minute derby, in which Hoddle inspired Spurs.
It was during Spurs' best spell of the game that Stevens scored, after thirty four minutes. Hoddle put in a cross which Galvin turned back into the middle and the Arsenal goalkeeper, Lukic, badly mis-punched it. Stevens drove the ball home through many defenders on the line.
The away game at Highbury on New Year's Day was scoreless.
Also on this Day, 29th March, Spurs are undefeated since 1930.
