Arsenal fans have been reminiscing over the thrilling north London derby of 2004 which ended in 5-4 to the Gunners.
All nine goals were scored by different players, with Tottenham Hotspur taking an early lead through Noureddine Naybet before being pegged back by Thierry Henry (via BBC).
Do Arsenal need to sack Emery to finish in the top 4?
The Gunners then scored two further goals through Patrick Vieira and defender Lauren, before Jermain Defoe gave the Lilywhites hope just a minute later.
Freddie Ljungberg scored a fourth in the 69th minute before Ledley King, once again, brought the gap back to just one goal. Robert Pires scored the red half of north London’s fifth and final goal, with Freddie Kanoute giving Spurs late hope in the 88th minute.
The result drew criticism from then-Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, who described the 5-4 scoreline as a ‘hockey score’ and ‘disgraceful’.
Fans had great memories of the manic clash as they took to Twitter to react. Here is a selection of tweets from the Emirates Stadium faithful:
I followed the whole game on Ceefax whilst in bed in my hotel room at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, New York. Of all the games, this one really wasn’t good for the ticker when watching text updates on Ceefax!

@flatshane remember this? If memory serves we watched this on the Blackstock Road somewhere more than a few pints down.

This was the game it all started to go wrong. Even though we won…I’d not seen our defence collapse like that in years. Now it’s a regular occurrence.

Mourinho described it as ‘a hockey score’ and he was right. We couldn’t defend and things soon fell apart.
