Spurs in History - 8th November
8th November, 2003
Arsenal 2 Spurs 1 (Premiership)
Very much a case of what might have been.
Spurs went into this game having lost at home to Bolton the previous week but were ahead after four minutes when Darren Anderton scored. Spurs had two opportunities to increase their lead in the first half when Helder Postiga was clean through on goal but he lost his composure and was unable to score. Postiga, restored to the team and starting only his fifth game of the season had a real chance to make a name for himself at Spurs but the opportunity was gone.
In the second half, Spurs were comfortable until Arsenal scored a debatable equaliser, looking offside, and with a deflected shot.
Spurs left Highbury deflated and frustrated at not getting anything from all their effort.
