Everton v Spurs - magic moment

Posted on 1 January 2016  - 16:00

You could always rely on David Ginola for a moment of magic - and we really needed one when he struck at Everton in November, 1997.


David didn't tend to do tap-ins during his Spurs career and this was no exception, a goal from the top drawer to take us to a crucial three points at Goodison Park.

Crucial in November? Well, a look at the Premier League standings before this match on November 27, 1997 will have showed you Everton propping up the table and us only outside the relegation zone on goal difference.

We weren't out of the woods until late in the campaign when another fans' favourite, Jurgen Klinsmann, found his goal-den touch just when we needed it - six goals in his last three games in a Spurs shirt, including four at Wimbledon in May, 1998, saw us to safety.

But at the time of this magic moment, we needed points - and David delivered!
