It was always going to be a dramatic night at the Emirates Stadium; with Harry Redknapp’s recent appointment as manager, the Spurs players with a point to prove and an Arsenal team looking for revenge following the 5-1 humiliation at the hands of Tottenham earlier in the year. The stage was set for a classic encounter and it didn’t disappoint.
David Bentley set the tone of the game with a dipping swerving 40 yard wonder strike early in the first half, but Arsenal fought back to lead 3-1 in what was a pulsating rollercoaster of a game.
With seconds remaining of normal time Spurs were 4-2 down and seemingly heading for defeat. The team; infused with a renewed sense of belief and never say die attitude drove forward and a last-minute double salvo from captain Jermaine Jenas and substitute Aaron Lennon leveled the match and stunned the Emirates Stadium.
It was night to savour for David Bentley, returning to his former club with magical inspiration. For Harry Redknapp and all associated with the club there was a great sense of unity and pride as Spurs ushered in a new era with a memorable and explosive evening of football.
