|1965||Ally Dick, Spurs' youngest League debutant and winger 1981-1986, born.|
|1973||Having trailed from the first leg, Spurs had to get the upper hand over Liverpool to go through to the UEFA Cup final. Spurs went ahead after half-time with a trademark Martin Peters header, but then Steve Heighway scored for Liverpool, meaning Spurs needed two more to progress. While Peters did score another, the woodwork denied Tottenham a third and it was Liverpool with their away goal who went on to the final.|
|1976||Gilberto da Silva Melo, defender 2008-2009, born.|
|1984||Having lost the away leg, but scored an away goal, a single Micky Hazard strike from a free kick gave Tottenham the passage through to the Final of the UEFA Cup for the third time. In the celebrations, one of Hazard's contact lenses fell out and he had to leave the field to replace it !! Apart from a shot which Parks fumbled upwards onto the bar before gratefully grabbing inches in front of the goal-line, Spurs managed to cope with all that Hajduk Split threw at them.|
|1987||Glenn Hoddle runs from the halfway line, bamboozling two defenders on the edge of the centre circle and shimmying past Peter Hucker in goal without touching the ball to score an outstanding farewell Tottenham goal to the White Hart Lane crowd in his penultimate home game before leaving for Monaco.|
scores his only goal for Spurs on his debut in midfield.
This match marked the last home game for the mercurial Paul Gascoigne and ace goalscorer Gary Lineker and the fact was marked by presenting them with small replicas of the FA Cup to thank them for their part in achieving the win in that competition in 1991.

|2009||Darren Bent scores his 50th career Premier League goal.|
