Spurs won this replay at the Lane with two stunning goals, taking them past Leeds United and into the quarter finals of the FA Cup.

The first half saw both sides create opportunities, with Harry Kewell shooting wide when Leeds broke away, then Chris Armstrong put a header from a David Ginola cross wide when well placed.

Nine minutes into the second half, Ginola's trademark dribble, coming in off the right wing saw him smash a left foot shot that crashed against the post, rolled along the line and bounced out, with George Graham celebrating, as he thought the ball had gone in.

With 58 minutes on the clock, a quickly taken free-kick by Ginola lead to the opening goal. His short touch to Darren Anderton caught Leeds napping and the winger's 30 yard pile-driver left Nigel Martyn grasping at thin air as it fizzed past him into the net.

Eight minutes after that, the England winger forced Martyn to touch another shot onto the post, but Ginola brought the house down with a goal that summed up his style. After Iversen hassled Gunnar Halle and the ball ran to Tim Sherwood, whose cross was cleared up into the air by Woodgate, but it was straight into the French maestro's run. Without breaking stride, he volleyed a shot from 25 yards out that bounced before Martyn and picked up pace off the pitch to rocket past the keeper to make it 2-0.

01.11.1997 This Premiership defeat by Leeds proved to be Gerry Francis' last home match in charge of the team.

Early pressure by the visitors paid off with efforts by Hopkin and Rod Wallace going close, before David Robertson played in Wallace to hit a 19th minute goal that decided this game.  Walker was also called upon to save from Bruno Ribeiro, Kewell and Wallace once again.

Spurs forced Nigel Martyn into action with attempts from Fox and Dominguez, with a fine 32nd minute drive tipped over from Sinton, while Wallace went close again two minutes later.  Into the second half, Ginola with a number of shots, a Campbell header and sub. Iversen all went close, but Tottenham could not break through the visitors' defence and Ribeiro went close to adding to their lead with Walker having to make a good stop to prevent it being 2-0.

15.03.1997 Darren Anderton's 25th minute goal settled this Premier League game at White Hart Lane.  

Iversen drew a stunning reflex save from Martyn within 30 seconds of the start, then Halle cleared a Sheringham effort off the line, while Iversen put a header just wide of the goal.  When John Scales sent in a deep cross, Sheringham headed back into Anderton's path to strike the ball past Martyn in the Leeds goal.  The rest of the game saw Tottenham create a string of chances, but Leeds held out to keep the score at 1-0.

14.12.1996 Spurs were the better of the two sides in this Premier League clash and hit the woodwork twice through a 38th minute Fox header and another header by Howells from a 54th minute corner hit the bar.  Nigel Martyn was busy keeping out efforts from Sheringham and Nielsen, with Walker doing well to deal with on-target efforts from Rod Wallace and Gary Kelly.  Near the end of the game, Fox was brought down by Leeds debutant Gunnar Halle in what looked to be a blatant penalty, but no spot-kick was awarded by the ref.

15.10.1995 Leeds United had to come from behind to gain a Premier League point against Spurs at Elland Road.

Teddy Sheringham was set up by Ilie Dumitrescu, who took the ball on the rebound from John Lukic when he saved the Romanian's initial shot and his fellow forward slotted the ball into the net in the 27th minute.

Spurs man of the match Ian Walker prevented Leeds pulling level with fine stops from Brian Deane on two occasions and a header from Gary Speed, but Deane was the one who managed to beat the Spurs keeper with 62 minutes gone with a low shot into the bottom corner of the net.

20.11.1993 A 1-1 draw was a fair result in this close fought game at White Hart Lane.

Brian Deane's close range header put Leeds ahead in the 52nd minute, following a Rod Wallace cross that pin-balled around the penalty area and the ball twice hit the woodwork before being netted.   Spurs lost Barmby with an ankle injury but the side pressed forward, causing Leeds some anxious moments with Edinburgh and Samways going close.  The equaliser finally came with ten minutes left as Darren Anderton's low free-kick beat Mark Beeney at the near post.

Spurs looked the likelier to win the game and Beeney did well to hold on to Samways fierce strike in the 86th minute.

20.02.1993 Tenth placed Spurs eased to a big win over 14th placed Leeds United at White Hart Lane in the Premier League.

Eight minutes in and Teddy Sheringham had given Spurs the lead, heading in Darren Anderton's right wing cross at the far post, with the striker grabbing his second goal with 37 minutes of the match gone.  It was another header, but this time from the edge of the box, looped over John Lukic after a Neil Ruddock ball played from inside the Tottenham half.

Spurs started the second half in the same vein and three minutes had elapsed before Neil Ruddock powered home a third Tottenham goal, rising highest to head home Anderton's free-kick from the right, leaving Sheringham to wrap up the Spurs goals and his hat-trick with a penalty in the 67th minute, awarded when Barmby's run into the left side of the penalty area was halted by a David Rocastle foul.

25.08.1992 Eric Cantona hit the Premier League's first hat-trick as Leeds romped home against a Spurs side who succumbed far too easily.

Erik Thorstvedt's difficulty with the new back-pass rule saw him get tackled by Rod Wallace, who netted the opener after 20 minutes.  Seven minutes later Cantona volleyed home a clearing header from Edinburgh and on 31 minutes, he was left alone to plant a header past Erik's dive.

It took only a couple of minutes after the break to wrap up his triple and then later on set up Lee Chapman for the fifth goal to complete Tottenham's humiliation.

23.01.1982 Spurs made hard work of seeing off a determined Leeds side, but won out with a second half goal from Garth Crooks.

Ray Clemence kept Frank Gray's 41st minute free kick out with a good save, while Hoddle made openings for Crooks, Galvin, Falco and Villa, but they were all spurned and it was only when Micky Hazard was introduced as a second half substitute that Spurs perked up.  The Geordie midfielder took a ball from Villa and crossed from the left to the head of Tony Galvin, who set it up for Crooks to swivel and hit a left foot shot past Leeds keeper Lukic, despite him getting a touch on it.

07.02.1981 A 1-1 draw with Leeds ended a Tottenham five match winning run, despite Spurs keeping John Lukic busy in the visiting goal.  Hoddle hit a fine free-kick and Archibald almost got on the end of strike partner Garth Crooks' cross, but he did make contact on the half hour, when his shot flew past Lukic.  Both Hoddle and Lacy went close to extending the lead before the break.

A McAllister header and a Perryman shot kept the pressure on Leeds, but when they broke shortly after the break, Carl Harris's free-kick unexpectedly brought Leeds level.  With the visitors looking for a winner, they pushed forward, but both Spurs strikers hit efforts high to leave Tottenham settling for the single point.

19.02.1977 Struggling Spurs lost out to an average Leeds side to keep them one place off the bottom of the First Division.

Leeds took the lead through Joe Jordan before youngster Gerry Armstrong pulled Tottenham level.  Keith Burkinshaw had taken the step of leaving Peter Taylor out of the side in a gamble to improve results, but when Allan Clarke scored the winner from the penalty spot, it left Spurs without anything to take back to London other than a good performance by Armstrong.

10.04.1976 Spurs were denied a sixth successive League win by a Leeds United side who held them to a 0-0 draw at White Hart Lane.

Goalkeeper David Harvey was the main obstacle in the way, making a number of stops to deny Tottenham.  Towards the end of the match, a short free-kick set up Keith Osgood for a shot at goal, but the ball fizzed just wide of the target at the Paxton Road end.

01.09.1973 A Leeds United side, in an all yellow strip, took Tottenham apart in a 3-0 win that was breath-taking at times. 

Alan Gilzean had passed a late fitness test and Mike Dillon continued to deputise for the injured Mike England, while Leeds had Bremner fit after sustaining a gashed shin, while Paul Reaney (ankle) and Allan Clarke (knee) were also declared fit to start.

In just the fourth minute, Billy Bremner, on the edge of the six yard box, headed Leeds ahead from a Lorimer free-kick with neither Ray Evans nor Martin Peters picking up the Leeds midfielder at the near post.  Ten minutes later the same combination doubled the lead with Bremner's curled shot going in off the post.  Allan Clarke got the third in the 28th minute, finishing at the far post, after Bremner and Lorimer had created a ball in that Mick Jones missed, but his strike partner didn't.  It was the a result that propelled Leeds on to the League title that season. 

The closest Spurs came to a goal was when Paul Reaney cleared Mike Dillon's header off the line just after Leeds had opened the scoring and the same happened just before half-time.  Dillon crossed for Gilzean to head at goal from close range, but his glancing effort went wide, then Ralph Coates forced Harvey to a save with a shot in the second half and the Leeds keeper produced a good diving effort to stop Peters' downward header.

18.03.1972 Leeds put Tottenham under heavy pressure in the early stages of the FA Cup Sixth Round tie at Elland Road, with the Spurs goal being peppered by shots, but they were not all on target and the team lead a charmed life.

Spurs worked their way back into the game and a move that flowed through Martin Peters, John Pratt and Ray Evans ended with a cross for Martin Chivers, whose downward header was saved by Gary Sprake. Then a few minutes before half time, John Pratt curled in a ball that confused the Leeds defence and despite Norman Hunter's desperate attempts to clear the ball, it entered the net to give Spurs the lead.

However, the lead did not survive until the break, with Leeds equalising three minutes after the Spurs goal, with Allan Clarke netting.

Soon after the break, a header by Jack Charlton put Leeds into the lead and they held on to it until the end, nearly extending it on a number of occasions, with Pat Jennings performing very well to keep the home side out.

25.08.1971 Due to crowd trouble by Leeds United fans the previous season, they were forced to play this First Division match with Spurs at Boothferry Park - the home of Hull City FC - as the FA closed their ground to home matches and the teams played out a 1-1  draw.

09.01.1971 A Martin Chivers double gave Spurs both points at Elland Road in this First Division match.

Spurs had a first minute injury to Jimmy Neighbour who sprained his ankle and this hampered their play, but Chivers' first goal came early in the match as he ran through the centre of the Leeds defence and hit a shot low at Gary Sprake's feet, beating him low down from the left of the box.  Leeds pulled level 15 minutes later, with Alan Clarke sticking away the opportunity.

Both Gilzean and Chivers worked hard to defend from the front and kept the Leeds defence on their toes, thus Sprake was called upon to perform heroics to keep out efforts from Gilzean and Peters before he was beaten again by Chivers for the winner.

20.08.1966 Mike England's debut was marked by a famous tussle between Dave Mackay and Billy Bremner that saw ref Norman Burtenshaw have to remove the Spurs midfielder's grasp on Bremner's shirt.

The match itself saw a 13th minute goal for Johnny Giles, with a shot off the left hand post at the Paxton Road end set up by Bobby Collins, give Leeds the ideal start to their season.  However, Tottenham equalised when Mullery hit home Gilzean's cross from the edge of the box.  Gilly headed home very early in the second half to give Spurs the lead, which was added to by Greaves, who beat three players, streaking away down the middle, to finish well to round off the scoring at 3-1.

27.02.1965 A goal-less draw at White Hart Lane between Spurs and Leeds United did little to whet the appetite of the fans who saw it, but both sides had their chances.

Jimmy Greaves hit the post with a header and Eddie Clayton's low shot was saved by Gary Sprake, while Greaves lobbed a good chance over the bar with the goal gaping.  United's chances went unconverted and the sides had to settle for a point each, with Spurs reduced to ten men when Frank Saul had to leave the game with an injury.

28.12.1959 Two days after the Elland Road meeting, it was Leeds who were the away winners, taking the points at the Lane with a 4-1 victory.

United had taken the lead through George Meek, but before half-time, Dave Mackay equalised.

An error from Maurice Norman, who mis-kicked and let John McCole through to restore Leeds' lead shocked Spurs fans and to make matters worse, Bobby Cameron glanced home a third goal for the visitors. Spurs could have got back in the game, but Cliff Jones missed a penalty by hitting the post and that was punished by McCole, who netted his second and Leeds' fourth to take two points for the team that was to be relegated at the end of the season.

25.08.1956 An opening home fixture against Leeds, in front of a 51,000 crowd, saw Spurs triumph 5-1 in this First Division match.

An early goal put Tottenham ahead courtesy of Johnny Brooks, but the lead was wiped out by a Leeds' equaliser that came from a shot by Keith Ripley that deflected past Ditchburn off centre-half Harry Clarke that made it 1-1.  In a see-saw first half, Spurs went ahead again with George Robb heading in and another header this time by Bobby Smith made it 3-1 at the break.

Terry Medwin's shot made it 4-1 and then Danny Blanchflower secured the points with a fifth Tottenham goal.

13.01.1954 Prior to this FA Cup Third Round replay, there was a tremendous downpour about half an hour before kick off.  This left ground staff worked tirelessly with brooms to clear the water from the pitch that resembled a lake. Rain had flooded the pitch for this Wednesday afternoon match, with the water being swept off the pitch, forcing fans back to drier parts of the terraces. Ronnie Burgess said it was the worst pitch he had ever played on, as there was little grass on show, just mud.

The game was little more than a matter of dodging the puddles and trying to free the ball from them, but the rain eased off after half-time and Spurs won courtesy of a 37th minute Les Bennett goal, hitting a low cross shot from Len Duquemin's pass that saw the ball get stuck in the mud on the edge of the penalty area.

At half-time both teams changed their kit  as it was soaked through and muddy, but Leeds came close to taking the tie to a second replay, when John Charles netted, only for it to be ruled out for offside

Spurs - Duquemin, Bennett,
