Norwich City 2 Spurs 2 (1st Division)
At the beginning of the season Terry Venables signed Gary Lineker from Barcelona and with Gascoigne and Waddle Spurs were looking to be a very exciting team. However, Waddle was sold to Marseilles and Lineker took time to settle. He failed to score in the opening six League and Cup games of the season and results were poor.
Lineker turned the corner in this game heading Spurs second goal to earn a point at Carrow Road. He then proceeded to score a hat-trick the following week-end at home to Queens Park Rangers. He proved his worth, finishing the season as top scorer with 26 League and Cup goals, including a second hat-trick in the home game against Norwich.
