Spurs in History - 13th May

13th May, 1967

Spurs 2 Sheffield United 0 (1st Division)

A successful end to a season as Spurs, undefeated from mid-January, climbed to third place in the League and were looking forward to a Cup Final appearance against Chelsea in a week’s time.

With a full strength team playing, the goals to ensure Spurs 24th win of the season were scored by Jimmy Greaves and Frank Saul.

Spurs had won nine of their previous ten games, the only blemish on that record was a scoreless draw at Liverpool. Having lost on Boxing Day, the team suffered only one defeat in twenty League games and were unbeaten in eight Cup games. They won 13 of the League games and drew six.
