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.
