Spurs 1 Arsenal 0 (1st Division)
Spurs had earned a point in a New Year’s Day scoreless draw at Highbury and in this frenetic, bruising return match, Spurs won thanks to a first half goal from Gary Stevens. Such was the pace of the game that only Hoddle managed to show his skill, inspiring them in a hectic ten minute spell around the goal, midway through the half, that could have brought more goals.
However, in the second half Spurs were less effective and only three outstanding saves by Ray Clemence earned his team the three points.
Despite a strong finish to the season Spurs finished tenth and manager Peter Shreeve was replaced by David Pleat.
