15th October 1963: Jimmy Greaves walks away after helping to tend to a fan who fainted before kick-off at the Arsenal v Tottenham match at Highbury. The 67,857 crammed into the stadium had filled it to capacity.
Greaves went on to open the scoring as Spurs stormed into a 4-2 lead at the interval with further goals from Bobby Smith (2) and Dave Mackay – Eastham twice pulling the Gunners within 2 in response.
With only five minutes remaining Tottenham still held the two goal lead acquired in the first half but Arsenal pulled one back through Baker and then equalised with a header from Strong at a corner with only twenty seconds of injury time remaining. For the third time in five years the North London derby had ended 4-4.
In the end the point was sufficient to take Tottenham to the top of the First Division, but after that finish it was Arsenal who felt like the victors that night.
