Deja Vu: Arsenal vrs Spurs in 1987 League Cup Semi Final


31st, January 2007

Tonight, Arsenal take on Spurs in the decider for a place in the league cup final. Well, it must be deja-vu for some fans as 20 years ago, the two sides met in the 1987 league cup semi final, and what a thriller it was! Back then, Arsenal hadn’t won a trophy since 1979 and Tottenham were the more successful of the two teams and were favourites to go through. Arsenal lost the first leg at home 0-1. In the second leg Arsenal won 2-1. Now, in those days, there was no away goals rule, and no penalties, so a third match had to decide the outcome. Watch the video below to see what happened, and pay your respects to Gunner legend David Rocastle who is sadly no longer with us…
