Another memorable win was at Highbury on New Year's Day, 1985.
Arsenal 1 Spurs 2 (1st Division)
Goals from Mark Falco and Garth Crooks gave Spurs a win which kept them challenging for the 1st Division title. It was Peter Shreeves' first season as manager but a poor series of results from mid-March through to the end of April saw Spurs lose out on the title to finish behind both Liverpool clubs. Injuries late in the season didn't help Spurs cause plus losing a number of crucial home games to their closest rivals.
Team: Clemence, Stevens, Mabbutt, Roberts, Miller, Perryman, Chiedozie, Falco, Galvin, Hoddle (Allen), Crooks.
Spurs' last game on this day was a visit to Southampton in 2003 and resulted in a one nil defeat.
Spurs' most recent wins on this day were a 1-0 victory over Blackburn Rovers at White Hart Lane in 2002. The goal was scored by Dean Richards but Blackburn got ample revenge by defeating Spurs in the final of the Worthington Cup at Cardiff at the end of February.
And in 2005 when Spurs had a comprehensive 5-2 victory over Everton. The goals were scored by Dean Marney (2), Mendes, Ziegler and Keane.
