Spurs 4 Leeds United 0 Premiership
This was to be Terry Venables last season in charge of Spurs. He was putting together a promising team of experienced and younger players which was playing exciting, entertaining football as they won six consecutive League and Cup games. Teddy Sheringham who had been signed at the beginning of the season sfrom Nottingham Forest scored in the 9th minute and added his second before half-time. Neil Ruddock then added a third and Sheringham completed his first hat-trick for the Club with a penalty to give Spurs their best League win of the season, revenge for a five goal defeat at Elland Road in August.
Team work and the enthusiasm and skill of Nicky Barmby and Darren Anderton clearly demonstrated the entertaining style that had the fans believing that the good times were about to return to White Hart Lane.
