VIDEO: Tottenham's greatest FA Cup moment against Arsenal?

FA Cup

The North London rivals have only met five times in the historic competition in well over a century, with the White Hart Lane faithful relishing this strike.

Tottenham travel to take on Arsenal in the clash of the third round of the FA Cup today, with both sides desperate to win.

Although other priorities such as the league title for the Gunners and Champions League qualification for Spurs take priority, this encounter will evoke plenty of fond memories in the travelling support.

Although Arsenal have won the last two meetings between the sides in the FA Cup, many a Tottenham supporter will look back to a meeting between the sides in the semi-final of the competition in 1991.

In the first semi-final ever to be played at Wembley, Spurs prevailed 3-1 against their bitter rivals to make the final and eventually record their eighth FA Cup success.

A certain Paul Gascoigne opened the scored after only five minutes with this memorable free-kick from long range.

A brace from Gary Lineker was enough to set up a final against Nottingham Forest, and Spurs fans will look for similar inspiration from one of their attacking players to progress to the next round today.
