Photo Feature: Tottenham v Liverpool
Saturday 16 August 1969
Tottenham 1 (Chivers 54)
Liverpool 1 (Knowles og 10)
The cliche of a game of two halves was never better exhibited than in this game. Liverpool dominated in the first half, only for Spurs to fight back and almost gather all two points in the second.
A Liverpool corner. It’s played short to Hughes.
With his back to goal he turns and shoots blindly.
Knowles gets his body in the way of the shot.
- Only to deflect it into his own net. 0-1 to Liverpool.
Gilzean tactfully drags the Liverpool defence towards him.
Only to release the ball into an open space…
…for the fast approaching Chivers.
Chivers one on one with Lawrence.
Lawrence desperately dives at Chivers’ shot.
Lawrence saves a certain goal, sending the ball for a corner.
From the resultant corner…
Chivers rushes towards the approaching corner cross.
Chivers lobs the ball into the back of the net to equalise for Spurs.
A fair result all round.
