29.11.1997 Spurs ran out 2-0 winners in a Premier League game they dominated at Goodison Park.

Everton had the best of the first half, but were unable to convert the chances they created, while Clive Wilson was alert in the first minute to clear Duncan Ferguson's header off the line.  Ex-Spur Nick Barmby glanced a shot against the bar and Spurs were further hampered, when the injured Campbell had to be replaced before half-time.  

Spurs had a good opportunity in the 56th minute, when Ramon Vega headed over when well-placed from Scales' header back into the box at Ginola's corner.  Fortunately, he was more accurate in the 72nd minute, when he was on hand to put Andy Sinton's cross into the net.  When David Ginola ripped a shot past the keeper following a mazy run to make it 2-0, Spurs had the points sewn up.

12.04.1997 Gary Speed's single goal won this Premier League game for struggling Everton, as Spurs suffered a number of injuries during the game at Goodison.

Speed struck in the 11th minute to give the home side a lead they held onto despite Tottenham having good openings that Sheringham (twice) and Campbell's header could not finish.  Allan Nielsen's effort was saved acrobatically by Neville Southall.  At the other end, Ian Walker saved from Duncan Ferguson and Graham Stuart, while Nick Barmby hit a shot into the side-netting.  Caretaker manager Dave Watson did well to head Teddy Sheringham's free-kick off the line to maintain the vital lead for Everton.

24.08.1994 Another outstanding goal-scoring master-class by Jurgen Klinsmann saw off Everton in this Premier League match.

Teddy Sheringham nearly gave Spurs the lead when he reached Kerslake's cross and diverted the ball up onto the bar and then reacted quickly, but his header just went over the bar.  In the 27th minute, David Kerslake broke down the right wing to cross into the box.  the ball fell at the far post, where Sheringham knocked it back, Nethercott headed down and Klinsmann leapt to scissor kick the ball past Southall with great power.

With 35 minutes gone, another Kerslake cross flicked off Sheringham's head and Klinsmann reacted well to the speeding ball to direct it just inside the post to give Tottenham a 2-0 advantage.  Just before the break an Unsworth handball in the box gave Sheringham the chance to make the lead even greater, but his penalty kick was blazed over the top.

Everton did get back into the game in the second half, when a quick free-kick was played to John Ebbrell, who bent the ball round the Spurs defence for Paul Rideout to slide in at the far post to narrow the lead.

03.10.1993 A stirring end to this match saw Spurs grab a late winner to disappoint a spirited Everton side in the Premier League at White Hart Lane.

Paul Rideout's 16th minute goal was equalised by Teddy Sheringham's firm header from Danny Hill's 59th minute cross, but the lead for Everton was regained by Cottee's 68th minute penalty.  The penalty detracted from Gary Mabbutt's day, as it was his 500th appearance for Tottenham and it was him who brought the former West Ham United striker to the ground to concede the spot-kick.

The game seemed to be slipping away from Tottenham, but Darren Anderton grabbed what seemed to be a point in the 89th minute with a finish to Sedgley's cross and Sheringham's nod down.  However, the Spurs fans in the crowd (and the Sky TV audience in front of their TVs) went wild when Darren Caskey shot home through a crowd of players in the area at the Paxton end to net the winner in the second minute of added time.

05.09.1992 Tottenham's captain for the day Paul Allen was on the mark to pull Spurs back into this first ever Premier League meeting with Everton at White Hart Lane. 

Peter Beardsley scored to give Everton a 1-0 lead in the 42nd minute when he ran away from the Spurs defence to slot home past Ian Walker, who got a hand to the ball, but could not stop it.

Things looked black for Spurs with only 11 minutes left, Paul Allen hit a shot past Neville Southall to level the scores and a point looked the likely outcome for Tottenham, but the introduction of Andy Turner from the bench to make his debut changed the course of the game.  As Spurs pressed forward and won a few late corners, one dropped out to the edge of the box and Turner struck the ball as it bounced up, waist-high and it ripped into the net for a late winner gave Spurs the points and made him the youngest scorer in the Premier League at the time aged 17 years and 166 days - a record that stood for five years.

01.02.1986 A late goal at Goodison Park won the match for the home side when it looked as though Spurs might take a First Division point from their visit to Merseyside.

Only eight minutes remained when some slick passing freed Peter Reid, who had been out injured for five months and the midfielder fired in a shot off the underside of the bar to beat Ray Clemence.  The goal took Everton top of the table, while Spurs were down in 13th place.

03.04.1985 Tottenham's hopes of challenging for the First Division title more or less ended with a disappointing defeat at home to Everton.

As early as the ninth minute, the visitors took the lead when striker Andy Gray volleyed in a fierce shot from 20 yards and in the 62nd minute, Trevor Steven added a second to give Spurs a tough task to get anything out of the game.  Although Graham Roberts scored a pile-driver from 25 yards out in the 73rd minute, Tottenham could not force an equaliser and finished the game on the attack, but with no reward.

25.08.1984 A sparkling win on the opening day of the season saw Spurs stun the European Cup Winners Cup holders. 

New manager Peter Shreeves threw new signings Clive Allen and John Chiedozie into the side and they made an immediate impact.  Adrian Heath's penalty put Spurs behind in the 16th minute, but it was not long before Tottenham pulled level with Mark Falco scoring in the 39th minute.

Within two minutes, Clive Allen had opened his goalscoring account for the club and then was joined in the debut scoring six minutes after the interval, when Chiedozie hit the net to make it 3-1 to Tottenham.  When Allen hit the fourth Spurs goal, it rounded off a fine first afternoon of the season for the side against the side who won the title at the end of the season.

John Pratt put Spurs ahead in this match, which Tottenham should really have won.  Don McAllister netted the second goal and a third from the penalty spot from the boot of Keith Osgood gave Spurs a 3-1 lead.  However, a late flurry from Everton saw them net two goals in the last few minutes to secure a point at 3-3.

Bob Latchford put the Toffees ahead, but Spurs might have equalise soon after, when Ralph Coates struck a shot that bounced out off the post straight after Latchford's goal and Martin Chivers then headed another chance over the bar.  Everton capitalised when John Connolly hit a shot into the net to give them a lead they held until the final whistle.

26.02.1972 Tottenham moved into the Sixth Round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win at Goodison Park.

Alan Gilzean put Tottenham ahead in the ninth minute when he shot low past a diving Gordon West, who had saved from Martin Chivers who latched onto a defensive mistake.

Spurs defended the pressure that Everton built on the Tottenham goal, leaving the stage set for a late goal by Martin Peters to seal the result in the 73rd minute, after a flowing move involving Gilzean, Roger Morgan and Chivers.

Martin Chivers had powered Spurs ahead with a header from 12 yards out after 20 minutes from a Martin Peters free-kick and Alan Gilzean dived in to turn Martin Peters' header past Everton goalkeeper Andy Rankin to net the winning goal of the game in the 50th minute.  Just five minutes before, Joe Royle's header had equalised for the visitors, who had lost Brian Labone early on in the game through injury.

Alan Mullery had a nervous moment as he cleared a ball off the goal-line with his head, but hit his own crossbar at the Paxton Road end as John Morrissey closed in.

Everton striker Alan Whittle put the home side ahead in the 30th minute, but an equaliser was soon netted by Alan Gilzean, just three minutes later.  However, the Toffees went into the half-time break ahead, as Alan Ball shot past Pat Jennings from the penalty spot on 40 minutes. 

Ball had the same opportunity in the 56th minute, but this time Jennings dived to his right to keep the ball out.  After Roger Kenyon had pulled Alan Gilzean's shirt, Dennis Bond scored his only Spurs goal from the penalty spot in the 72nd minute to level things at 2-2, but then three minutes from time came Everton's winner as Joe Royle scored to make it 3-2.

Alan Mullery pulled a goal back for Tottenham in the 53rd minute with a right foot shot from just inside the box that flew past Brian Labone and John Hurst, but the victory was completed with a Fred Pickering goal with 72 minutes on the clock.  The Everton striker collected a long clearance and took it around Laurie Brown to beat Bill Brown with a shot, making the final score 3-1.

26.10.1963 Tottenham lost out to a single goal to Everton at Goodison Park.

A capacity all-ticket crowd witnessed a tense tussle, with saw defences preventing few opportunities on goal. Spurs were building pressure on the home goal, with Cliff Jones hitting the side-netting, but shortly afterwards, in the 78th minute, the Toffees got past the Tottenham back line, when Dennis Stevens' short pass found Derek Temple, who took a quick shot that flew past Bill Brown from 30 yards out which took both points for the home team.

54,000 fans gathered in the drizzle to see Everton jump over Spurs into second place in the First Division with a 3-0 win.

 

Spurs forced Albert Dunlop to a good save when John White shot at goal and Peter Baker was denied when his shot was headed away from the goal-line by Jimmy Gabriel.  Frank Saul also looked like he was in on goal, only to be tackled as he prepared to shoot.

 

Everton took the lead before half-time through Frank Wignall, netting twice in the second half with Billy Bingham making it 2-0 nine minutes after the break before Wignall grabbed a second for himself.

17.12.1960 The trip to the North-West saw Spurs play the return fixture of the opening day's games and the match went ahead despite the fog on Merseyside.

Tottenham earned a 36th minute lead when John White took Cliff Jones' pass in his stride and shot past the Toffees goalie and that lead was extended by Les Allen, who converted Dyson's ball two minutes after the first goal.

Three minutes after the restart, Frank Wignall reduced the arrears, but then Spurs looked to have gone 3-1 ahead.  However, Bobby Smith had punched the ball into the net and when it was disallowed, his team-mates were still celebrating when the home team took the free-kick to race away to the other end of the pitch with no Tottenham player nearby.  Winger Cliff Jones' pace took him back to produce a well-timed tackle to take the ball back to Bill Brown.  The Spurs goalie rolled the ball out to Jones, who then raced away to square the ball to Dave Mackay, who struck a shot from 35 yards out to beat the Everton keeper all ends up at the other end on 60 minutes to seal the win that put some distance between Spurs and Everton at the top of the table.

11.10.1958 New manager Bill Nicholson took over one the morning of the match to pit his Spurs side against bottom of the table Everton.

Stokes gave Spurs the lead on three minutes, but Harris equalised after eight minutes later.  Bobby Smith made it 2-1 on the 15 minute mark and George Robb put Spurs 3-1 just before the half hour. One minute later, Smith scored again and one more minute on Stokes grabbed his second to put the score at 5-1. Right on half-time, Terry Medwin struck the sixth Tottenham goal.

Seven minutes into the second half, Harris pulled one back at 6-2, but Smith netted again to restore the five goal gap.  On 80 minutes Tommy Harmer score to put Spurs 8-2 up, but Harris got another for Everton straight from the kick-off to complete his hat-trick.  With five minutes remaining, Smith made it 9-3, before Bobby Collins got Everton's fourth within a minute and Ryden (who had been hobbling out on the left wing, as he was injured) scored past shell-shocked keeper Jimmy O'Neill to put Spurs into double figures and round off a memorable day for Bill Nicholson and Tottenham Hotspur.

05.04.1958 Tottenham had raced into an early three goal lead, but a battling performance by the Toffees gave the home side some nervous moments before the end of the match.

Just before ten minutes had elapsed, debutant Eddie Clayton put Tottenham ahead and seven minutes after, Bobby Smith made it 2-0.  Smith forced Bert Dunlop into a fine save, but Clayton netted to put Spurs three goals ahead.  Shortly after half-time, Tommy Harmer and Terry Medwin linked well to provide Smith the chance to head home number four.

Halfway through the second half, Everton began their comeback with a left footed shot from Dave Hickson, while Eddie Thomas fired home from a tight angle to make it 4-2.  The deficit was reduced to one goal when claims for handball in the box rang out, but Hickson played on to slam the ball home.

In a game of much incident, Ted Ditchburn had to soldier on with an injured knee, while Clayton might have added to his tally in his first match with a shot against a post and another ruled out for a push.

11.11.1950 Eddie Baily's 25th minute goal gave Tottenham a great start, but Everton's Ted Buckle sent the home crowd into raptures with an equaliser early in the second half, when he deflected Wally Fielding's free-kick into the net after 57 minutes. 

It was Les Medley who was the creator of the Baily goal, racing past two defenders to cross into the middle for Baily to flick the ball past the keeper George Burnett .  The Buckle goal set Spurs back, but Sonny Walters played a cross into Les Medley, who took the ball around goalie to score the winning goal in the 64th minute.

22.02.1937 Torrential rain left the pitch sodden, so the ground-staff worked wonders to get the game playable for Second Division Spurs to face up against Everton - lingering in the lower reaches of Div. 1 - in a Fifth round FA Cup replay. 

Within 20 minutes, Everton took a 2-0 lead with goals from Tommy Lawton and Dixie Dean.  Johnny Morrison grabbed a goal seven minutes later to give Spurs a way back, but a linesman helped even further just after half time.  Dean was fouled in the box and the referee pointed to the penalty spot, but on conferring with his colleague, overturned his decision to give a foul throw against Everton in the build up to the incident.  Spurs were also denied, this time when an equaliser was ruled out for a foul by Morrison on the keeper before netting.

It looked as though Spurs were out of it, as Everton broke to the other end of the pitch in the 63rd minute and Dean scored to give the Toffees a 3-1 lead.  A couple of minutes later, Joe Meek set Morrison away to beat an offside trap and close the gap to one goal again.  With five minutes remaining, Morrison returned the favour and Meek scored to make it 3-3 to send the 46,972 crowd wild.  The momentum was now in Spurs' favour and when Morrison headed home Miller's cross, his hat-trick had completed an amazing comeback to go through to the 6th round.
