Goal of the Season - Part 3

This week on tottenhamhotspur.com we are giving fans the chance to vote for their favourite Spurs goal of the 2008-09 campaign.

It was a season in which we managed to lift ourselves from the doom and gloom of relegation trouble to the exciting prospect of European qualification under the guidance of Harry Redknapp.

And there were a number of memorable goals along the way!

Every day this week we will be giving you the lowdown on each of the five contenders - here is your Option 3...

Jermaine Jenas v Arsenal, Wednesday October 29, Emirates Stadium

A goal that is often over-shadowed by the dramatic finale that was to come in this game - but the quality cannot be ignored.

JJ, skipper on the night, was not about to give up on taking something away from this North London derby - despite us being 4-2 down with a minute of normal time to go.

Perhaps Arsenal thought they had won it, and were knocking the ball around confidently until a slip from Gael Clichy.

JJ pounced and ran at the defence. As Mickael Silvestre backed off, the midfielder curled a delightful shot with his weaker left foot into Manuel Almunia's top corner from just outside the box.

Surely no more than a consolation? Think again. Not only was it one of the goals of the season but it gave us belief that we could get something from this game against the odds.

It left the Gunners panicking and they couldn't hold onto the ball. Our next attack resulted in that famous equaliser, and this goal's impact cannot be ignored.
