Spurs in History - 2nd February

2nd February, 1987

Spurs 5 West Ham United 0 (League Cup 5th Round Replay)

This League Cup Replay, following a 1-1 draw the previous week, saw Spurs produce a top class performance with Ossie Ardiles and Glenn Hoddle in control, producing some very attractive football.

After six minutes Ardiles found Nico Claesen who scored and from then on, Spurs dominated the game but it was not until the 71st minute that they increased their lead with a Hoddle shot from 20 yards. In the last ten minutes Clive Allen came into his own, completing a hat-trick including a penalty after a foul on his cousin, Paul Allen.

This is a game often remembered by those present and set up a two-leg semi-final clash with North London neighbours, Arsenal.
