It has been just over eight years since Tottenham Hotspur beat Arsenal on their own patch.

The victory came on November 20th 2008, when an incredible comeback from Spurs saw them rally from two goals down to defeat bitter rivals Arsenal 3-2 in the North London derby.

Harry Redknapp saw his side go two goals behind within the space of the first the first 27 minutes when Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh both scored.

Spurs looked like a different side after the break and pulled a goal back through Gareth Bale and then a handball from Cesc Fabregas allowed Rafael van der Vaart to tuck away from the penalty spot to level the score.

With just four minutes left to play, Younes Kaboul climbed highest to head home beyond Jens Lehmann, handing Spurs their first league win at Arsenal in 18 matches.

Hopefully, we can expect more of the same later.  COYS.
