It was a season in which Spurs were blessed with some amazing talent – not least in the shape of England stars Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne who had both sparkled at that summer’s World Cup in Italy.
North-east born Gazza seemed to relish the opportunity of playing against one of the region’s clubs and he turned in one of his finest Spurs displays as the hosts enjoyed a 5-0 triumph.
After Lineker grabbed the first with a typical poacher’s finish, Gazza then turned on the style and helped himself to the other four Spurs goals with some classy play.
We’ve got our hands on the footage from that game in September 1990 and put together some extended highlights for you to enjoy on Pools Player.
