08.11.1997 Spurs put in a fine performance in this Premier League match, but somehow lost 0-4.  

In a first half that Tottenham dominated, Ginola, Scales and Iversen all had good opportunities, but two quick goals after the break turned the game in Liverpool's favour.  Walker did well to stop Jamie Redknapp's effort, but it fell to Steve McManaman hit the loose ball home in the 48th minute.  A goal was curled in from the edge of the area by Oyvind Leonhardsen after Walker had stopped Robbie Fowler's shot, then goals from Redknapp on 65 minutes and Owen, played in by Ince in the 85th rounded off the scoring for the home side.

03.05.1997

Tottenham's early lead was not enough to keep Liverpool from taking the points in this Premier League game at Anfield.

Campbell's cross was headed in by Darren Anderton to put Tottenham ahead in the sixth minute and Ramon Vega could have added to the lead, but was just wide.  However, Stan Collymore equalised in the fifteenth minute and later a powerful drive from Patrik Berger won the match for the home team.  Espen Baardsen had replaced Ian Walker at the break to make his debut and made some very good saves from Collymore, McManaman and Redknapp, while Howells diving header went close and other opportunities were created for Vega, Fox and Campbell.

02.12.1996 Spurs made a bright start and had openings with Chris Armstrong, Teddy Sheringham and Stephen Carr all having good chances and Sol Campbell had a goal disallowed.  

The match turned when Michael Thomas hit the opening goal right on half-time.  The game was put beyond Spurs just after the break, when Steve McManaman hit a speculative low drive that Walker appeared to have covered, until it hit a divot in the Park Lane penalty area and flew over the diving keeper to give Liverpool the lead in the 48th minute.  McManaman threatened later in the game, when he hit the woodwork, but there was no further scoring.

18.12.1993

A game that swung back and forth ended up all square after six goals.

A minute's silence was held before the game for the recent deaths of legendary skipper Danny Blanchflower and Len Julians, who was the Football in the Community officer at Spurs. 

Once the football got underway, it was a pulsating game.  Tottenham took the lead in the 37th minute thanks to Vinny Samways' low finish, but three minutes after the break Robbie Fowler levelled the score and three minutes after that Jamie Redknapp gave the Reds the advantage.  It was soon 1-3 as Fowler converted a spot-kick for his second of the match in the 55th minute, but another penalty, this time for Spurs, saw Micky Hazard peg the visitors back to 2-3 with just 21 minutes remaining.   Darren Caskey was on target in the 77th minute of the match to tie it up at 3-3 and the points were shared.

08.05.1993 An inexperienced Spurs side crashed 2-6 at Anfield to a free-flowing Liverpool team.

The first came just after 21 minutes, when Ian Rush shot home from inside the box, which was followed by John Barnes heading in a right wing cross in the 44th minute.  A minute after the restart Teddy Sheringham scored from a Ruddock free-kick, but Stuart Nethercott scored an own goal three minutes after the break, when he deflected a Steve Harkness shot following a left wing corner.  Steve Sedgley got a goal back to make it 3-2, receiving a pass from Darren Anderton, the Spurs midfielder went past Mark Wright before putting a low shot into the net with 77 minutes on the clock.

After that it was all Liverpool as they went on to rack up a 6-2 score-line with a Mark Walters penalty in the 82nd minute, Ian rush grabbing a second on 85 minutes and Barnes' second wrapping it up with two minutes left.

31.10.1992 Spurs hosted the Bootleg Beatles as pre-match entertainment to welcome Liverpool to White Hart Lane, before serving up a 2-0 home win over the Merseysiders.  

Spurs were awarded a free-kick in the centre circle, which was played into the Liverpool penalty area, but it was headed clear.  The ball went out to the 25 yard position where Nayim lashed a looping right foot volley over the keeper to hand Tottenham the lead.  Tottenham got a second goal when a Nayim corner was flicked on at the near post to Neil Ruddock, who headed the ball in, even though it had been slightly behind him.

22.03.1987 Chris Waddle scored for Spurs in a rainy White Hart Lane to give Tottenham victory in this televised First Division game.  His early shot skidded off the turf to beat Grobbelaar in the Reds goal.

Tottenham's cup runs had left them well behind the Reds in terms of position and points, but they had five games in hand, but having already won at Anfield earlier in the season, the team produced a fine solid defensive performance to hold the league leaders at bay and narrow the gap between the two sides.

16.03.1985 It had been 73 years since Tottenham had last won at Anfield, but Garth Crooks' 70th minute shot won a memorable game for Spurs.

Spurs started confidently, having lost only once in 15 games, despite coming into the game off the back of a 1-2 home defeat by Manchester United.  With nothing much happening in the first 20 minutes of the game, Ray Clemence was called upon to tip over a shot in the first half and then saved as Phil Neal broke into the Spurs box in the second.

The Lilywhites had to wait until the 71st minute for the winning goal.  Mark Falco blocked a clearance and as the Liverpool players were shouting for handball, Micky Hazard fired in a shot that Bruce Grobbelaar could only parry, leaving Crooks the chance to nip in to knock it home.

Liverpool pressed to get back into the game, but the resolute defence kept the rampant Reds out and the long unwanted record was at last broken.

31.10.1984 Having won the trophy for three years on the trot, Spurs ended Liverpool's dominance in the League Cup with this third round win and ended their unbeaten run of 25 matches.

An early goal after six minute saw Tottenham win through to the Fourth round, with Clive Allen's close range finish coming after Grobbelaar could not hold a shot from the left wing by Tony Galvin.

10.03.1984 Gary Stevens hit a second minute goal with a hooked shot from Glenn Hoddle's pass to put Tottenham ahead at Anfield, but two goals in a minute from Kenny Dalglish and Ronnie Whelan put the home side ahead just before the break.  A second half goal from Sammy Lee sealed the win for the Reds.

30.04.1983 Two Steve Archibald goals gave Spurs a Division One win over Liverpool at White Hart Lane, but the Merseysiders still won the League title thanks to results elsewhere.

A dull first half saw Alan Brazil twist past Phil Thompson to hit a low shot at Bruce Grobbelaar after setting Steve Archibald up for a shot that flew just over into the Park Lane end.

A quickly taken free-kick four minutes after the interval almost went wrong.  Alan Brazil tapped the ball to Steve Perryman, but it was a bit short.  Perryman's tackle took the ball wide to Glenn Hoddle on the right wing and he crossed for an unmarked Archibald to head home from five yards out.

Three minutes later, the Scot was on the score-sheet again when a throw-in deep in the Spurs half found Gary Mabbutt getting to the ball first as Mark Lawrenson hesitated.  The pass was nudged through on the halfway line for Archibald to run through and slot past Bruce Grobbelaar from the edge of the area to make it 2-0.

Hoddle was pulling the strings in midfield, leaving Liverpool chasing shadows and created opportunities for Mabbutt and O'Reilly to go close, while Rush produced the only effort that made Ray Clemence make a save.

15.05.1982 Although Liverpool clinched the First Division title with a win in this match, it will long be remembered for Glenn Hoddle's outstanding goal.

With 26 minutes on the clock, Hoddle ran onto a bouncing ball near the halfway line and ripped a shot from 35 yards into the top of the net past a grasping Bruce Grobelaar.

Ray Clemence's return to Anfield saw him receive a rapturous welcome from the Kop, but they saw him concede three second half goals to Lawrenson, Dalglish and Whelan to secure a 3-1 win.

03.05.1982 Bad weather in the winter stopped Spurs hosting a Division One match with Liverpool until the start of May.

Within eight minutes, Tottenham were ahead when Steve Perryman struck a rising shot from the edge of the penalty area that beat Bruce Grobbelaar.  A mistake by Alan Hansen, whose header only found Mark Falco, lead to the second goal in the 43rd minute.  Falco crossed for Steve Archibald to side-foot home to make it 2-0 at the break.

A foul on Kenny Dalglish by Graham Roberts led to a free-kick which the Scot took himself and it ripped past Aleksic in the Tottenham goal to reduce the deficit.  It was 2-2 halfway through the second half when Dalglish lifted the ball over the Spurs keeper to earn the visitors a point.

13.03.1982 Spurs had looked to have this League Cup Final sewn up until a late goal by Ronnie Whelan three minutes before the final whistle took the game into extra time.

Steve Perryman broke up a Liverpool move and fed Glenn Hoddle, whose pass split the defence for Steve Archibald to slip the ball past Grobbelaar to give Tottenham a 10th minute lead and the same player was through on goal in the second half, with a chance to secure a 2-0 lead, but Grobbelaar defied him.  All was going to plan until Whelan converted Johnston's cross to take the tired Spurs into an extra 30 minutes.

During the extra time, Spurs were hampered by Tony Galvin's injury following a harsh tackle by Souness and Liverpool were the stronger side and in the 111th minute, Whelan curled a goal in from the left corner of the area and one minute from the end, Johnston was again the provider, this time for Ian Rush to wrap up a win for the Reds.

02.09.1978 Tottenham were left stunned by a storming performance by Liverpool, who condemned Spurs to their biggest league defeat at Anfield in the 0-7 thrashing.

With Ardiles and Villa in the team, it was hoped that there might be some joy at Anfield for a change, but that looked doubtful when Dalglish scored after eight minutes, shooting under Barry Daines after controlling a shot from Jimmy Case, which was going wide.  A second on 20 minutes made it look a tough task for Tottenham to get anything out of the match, but again, there was a little good fortune, as Dalglish diverted Case's fierce shot just inside the post.  However, when Ray Kennedy's far post header just before half-time flicked past Daines off John Lacy, it looked like the game was up.

That wasn't before Liverpool put on a display in the second half safe with a 3-0 lead behind them.  Two goals from substitute David Johnson left Spurs reeling and when John Duncan made a fine clearance off the goal-line, he was a hero for a few minutes, until he brought down Steve Heighway in the area to give Phil Neal the opportunity to score from the spot.  It looked as if Daines would be the hero, as he plunged to his right to stop the spot-kick, but the ref thought he had moved too soon and the re-take went high into the net to make it 6-0. 

That might have been the fortunes conspiring against Spurs, but the last goal was memorable for it's flowing football.  Tottenham had been attacking, but Ray Clemence played the ball to Kennedy, who moved it onto Dalglish.  His pass found Johnson running onto it in the centre-circle and he took a touch, turned and fed Heighway storming up the left flank.  Hitting a first time cross, he found Terry McDemott, who had made a long run from deep to plant a far post header past Daines to wrap up a totally miserable day for the large contingent of travelling Spurs fans.

23.08.1975 Spurs were disappointed to leave Anfield with nothing after taking a 2-0 lead against Liverpool.

First half goals from Chris Jones and John Duncan had put Tottenham in a strong position coming into the dressing room in the interval.  John Duncan glanced a header in for the opening Spurs goal, with Emlyn Hughes failing to jump with him.


However, a penalty after the restart, which was converted by Kevin Keegan, kick started a Reds revival, with Jimmy Case and Steve Heighway adding to that goal to give Liverpool a 3-2 home win.  Spurs were denied a last minute equaliser when Ray Clemence closed down Steve Perryman and managed to deflect the Spurs skipper's shot wide for a corner.

22.03.1975 Two second half goals from Kevin Keegan and Peter Cormack gave the Reds a win against Spurs at White Hart Lane, which kept us in 20th position in the First Division.

Starting the game in energetic mood, Spurs had the better of the first quarter of an hour, but lost Cyril Knowles in the 23rd minute with an injury. With few clear scoring opportunities, Steve Perryman was foiled by Ray Clemence's save and Brian Hall fired a shot over the bar for Liverpool.

Straight from the kick off in the second half, Kevin Keegan scored for the visitors and only a rush from his line by Pat Jennings prevented Hall getting a second. However, this only postponed the Reds' addition to the score, as Peter Cormack's header made it 2-0 and thwarted any hopes of a comeback.

08.05.1974 Having won the FA Cup against Newcastle United four days before this match and with Spurs due to play Feyenoord in the UEFA Cup final, both teams were at the tail end of a long season, but an entertaining 1-1 draw was played out on a May evening at White Hart Lane.

Chris McGrath put Tottenham ahead when he scored halfway through the second half, but Tottenham were pegged back within a few minutes by a Steve Heighway goal, which earned the League runners-up a point on their trip to the Lane.  McGrath could have won it right at the death, but his shot went narrowly wide of the goal.

22.09.1973 The first goals conceded at their home ground scored by Martin Peters and Martin Chivers were not enough to stop Spurs slipping to defeat against Liverpool at Anfield.

Peters hit the target with a low shot from the right side of the penalty area to beat Ray Clemence, but Chris Lawler levelled the scores before the break.  Chivers then gave Spurs the lead for a second time early in the second half.  Peter Cormack shaved the post with a header, but it took a twice taken penalty from Alec Lindsay (Jennings having saved the first spot-kick from Emlyn Hughes, but had moved too early) and a last ditch Lawler shot that only went in via the post to earn the home side both points.

Spurs were at home in the second leg of the UEFA Cup semi-final and were trying to recover a 0-1 deficit from the first leg.

A tense match stayed at 0-0 until just after half-time and Martin Peters then equalised on aggregate when he forced home Gilzean's flick on from Chivers' long throw.  Things became that much harder when Kevin Keegan sent over a cross for Steve Heighway to knock past Jennings to make it 2-1 on aggregate.  This meant Tottenham needed to score three times to go through to the final for the second year running.

Spurs continued to push forward and the unrelenting pressure saw the Reds pull all their players back into their own half.  Peters smacked a shot against the bar and then Pratt headed wide when well placed.  In the crowd, a massive buzz transmitted through the fans when Peters finally drilled home a right foot shot from just outside the six yard box following a goalmouth scramble to put Spurs level again overall. 

Spurs went all out for the goal that would see the tie go into extra time, with Alan Gilzean heading Ray Evans' free-kick just wide with the visitors' goal leading a charmed life before the final whistle, but the Reds held out, with some staunch defending, to progress to the final on the away goals rule.

Kevin Keegan's spot-kick in the 39th minute was stopped by Jennings diving to his right and then he dived to stop a Tommy Smith penalty right down the middle with five minutes to go. As well as these saves, Pat was on the top of his game to deny Liverpool on a number of other occasions.

Alan Gilzean scored Tottenham's goal in the 21st minute to put us 1-0 ahead with a shot from the right side of the goal across Ray Clemence from 10 yards out, but Liverpool equalised in the second half when Kevin Keegan scored.

06.12.1972

A rain drenched pitch played pretty well considering and a good League Cup Fifth Round replay was won by a determined Tottenham side.

A Martin Chivers brace and a fierce shot from distance that fair tore into the net gave Tottenham a decisive 3-0 lead within 14 minutes of the kick-off.  Chivers' free-kick deflected off a defender and skidded off the turf to beat Ray Clemence in the fifth minute and then, after 11 minutes, a corner was played into John Pratt's path by Peters and the Spurs midfielder smashed a pile-driver into the roof of the net past Ray Clemence from 25 yards.  

Making it three in nine minutes, Chivers used his strength to break through to take the ball and smash a shot home from the edge of the area for a commanding lead, but Liverpool plugged away and Ian Callaghan hit back with another long-range effort with four minutes left, but Spurs held on to progress to the semi-final.

Having been under pressure for most of the first half of this League Cup Fifth Round, Spurs took a surprise lead on 54 minutes.

With Tottenham playing the better football in the first half, it was a surprise when the teams turned around goal-less, as just before half-time, Martin Chivers stretched to put a shot just over the crossbar from close range after a low ball into the box.  However, when a Pearce corner fell to Martin Peters, the England striker knocked the ball in from 15 yards out with a left foot shot past Ray Clemence in the 54th minute.

Mike England had been in good form to keep the home side out and Jennings kept out efforts from Toshack and Keegan and then Larry Lloyd headed a chance over the bar. Steve Heighway had a shot saved by Jennings before the Spurs keeper was finally beaten by a rising left foot shot from Emlyn Hughes which rocketed past him with 12 minutes left to play following a Heighway corner.

Liverpool pressed for the winner, but Tottenham held out to take them back to White Hart Lane for another try.

18.12.1971 It was an agile display from Pat Jennings that earned Tottenham a point from their visit to Anfield in the First Division, with this being the fourth successive goal-less visit to the Reds.

The first half was slightly even, with Liverpool perhaps having more of the territorial advantage, while the second half saw the home team press harder for a goal. While the defence and Pat Jennings stood firm, there were opportunities at the other end.  Mike England had a goal disallowed and then had another effort cleared off the line. Despite sustaining a knock on his hip, Jimmy Pearce battled on and forced a good save from Ray Clemence, but was eventually replaced by Phil Holder, who made his first league appearance.

The Spurs keeper had a hectic time and he kept out a penalty from Tommy Smith prior to the interval, but was indebted to Phil Beal and Tony Want for clearing the ball off the line when it eventually did beat him.

A Joe Kinnear free-kick was flicked on by Alan Gilzean, in inimitable fashion for Martin Chivers to score past Ray Clemence in the Liverpool goal after 10th minutes and 44 seconds.  A host of chances presented opportunities to go further ahead in the first half, but it was England colleague Martin Peters completed the victory with a header from Cyril Knowles' cross, which ended up in the bottom corner of the net after 56 minutes and 22 seconds.

Liverpool had the bulk of the possession, but having lost Joe Kinnear early on in the match with an early ankle injury, breaking a blood vessel, it was a tough task for Tottenham to hold on, but did so with a good battling midfield performance and some great saves from Pat Jennings.

Spurs earned a replay with a determined display in a fiercely competitive FA Cup Sixth Round match at Anfield that ended goal-less.
 

Spurs were under pressure for the majority of the first half and the start of the second, but there were chances to win it at the end, with John Pratt, standing in for injured Alan Gilzean, took a pass from Steve Perryman, but Liverpool managed to deny a shot on goal.
 

Pat Jennings was alert to deny Larry Lloyd a headed goal when he punched the ball away and then Alan Mullery set Jimmy Neighbour in on goal, with the winger going close with his shot before Mullery fired in a low cross along the six yard box with no-one there to apply a finishing touch.

28.11.1964 Spurs travelled to Anfield to meet the league champions and the home team were coming into the game off the back of their first European Cup game, which had seen them defeat Anderlecht.

Spurs found themselves hampered by an ankle injury to Tony Marchi in the 20th minute and he was a passenger on the wing for most of the match, as there were no substitutes allowed at this time.

Liverpool went ahead in the 40th minute, when Roger Hunt headed home after Ron Yeats provided Ian Callaghan the chance to cross the ball.

Spurs started after half-time without Marchi, but he made his re-appearance five minutes into the second period and soon after Jimmy Greaves surprised Reds keeper Tommy Lawrence, when he nipped in to divert the ball into the net at the Kop end as Jimmy Robertson's shot looked like it would be easily saved by the goalie.

23.01.1954 Tottenham got away with a draw at Anfield as they put up a rearguard action to keep the Reds at bay.

Ted Ditchburn in the Spurs goal kept them out in the first period, but on 53 minutes Billy Liddell headed the opener for the home side, after Brian Jackson and Eric Anderson had opened up the way for his effort.  Laurie Hughes made a poor header in his own box and Sonny Walters pounced on it to give Tottenham an unlikely equaliser, shooting under Dave Underwood in the Liverpool goal with 70 minutes gone.

Five minutes later, the Reds had restored their lead with John Evans scoring after being set up by Liddell and Jackson, but with only six minutes remaining, Tottenham gained an undeserved draw thanks to Frank Lock putting past his own goalkeeper as the ball was played in from the left.

Liverpool came to White Hart Lane for this First Division match, with Spurs, fielding two amateur wingers,  looking for revenge for their defeat just five days before.

Liverpool went ahead in the 30th minute, with Brian Williams netting, but Vic Groves scored on his first appearance to bring Spurs level shortly after the teams had turned around.  Len Duquemin's shot was knocked down by 'Pool keeper Charlie Ashcroft, but Tommy Harmer was on hand to give Spurs the lead from two yards out in the 69th minute.

In the next minute, Baily fed Len Duquemin who passed to Groves to hit his second and Tottenham's third, thus ending the Merseysiders' unbeaten start to this season.

The first half of this First Division game at Anfield was dominated by Spurs, but they failed to capitalise on their possession and only had Eddie Baily's 18-yard drive to show for it, after he had been set up by Ron Burgess and Len Duquemin.  

After the break Jack Smith brought the scores level for the home side, but was unfortunately carried off later with a badly bruised thigh.  In the 86th minute, Kevin Baron was fouled by Les Bennett in the area and Liverpool legend Billy Liddell converted the penalty to give them a 2-1 win.

Liverpool took both First Division points at White Hart Lane despite being lower than Spurs in the table.  The Reds took the lead with Billy Liddell striking twice in the first half and went on to complete his hat-trick in the second.

In between, Laurie Hughes scored an own goal (although some credited Bennett with the goal) just after the break to give Spurs some hope and then Sonny Walters equalised, but Liddell's penalty winner after a foul on him meant the fight-back was all in vain.
