Classic derby day moments

With another north London derby looming large, it's worth remembering that some of our most famous triumphs have come against our old rivals.

Arsenal.com's Gunners' Greatest Moments series summed that up perfectly with five of the top 50 devoted to key fixtures against Tottenham.

Now's your chance to take a trip down memory lane and get yourself in the mood for Saturday's vital game at White Hart Lane:

GGM No 3: 'Invincibles' clinch the title
"We won the league at White Hart Lane..." That Arsenal chant must gnaw away at Tottenham fans who have suffered the indignity of watching their local rivals clinch the title on their ground not once, but twice.

GGM No 27: Kennedy heads 1971 title winner
Any victory at White Hart Lane warms the hearts of Arsenal fans. But this one was something special. On Monday, May 3, 1971, Bertie Mee's side travelled to the home of their local rivals for the final match of the league season.

GGM No 30: 'Rocky' stuns Spurs in Cup
The Littlewoods Cup Semi Final of 1987 brought a trilogy of dramatic derby matches to North London. Tottenham won the first leg at Highbury 1-0 courtesy of a Clive Allen strike. When the Spurs striker netted again after 16 minutes of the second leg, Arsenal looked down and out.

GGM No 31: Brady classic caps 5-0 victory
The Christmas period of 1978 brought an unexpected gift for Arsenal. It came two days early but it set the tone for the festive season perfectly: Tottenham 0 Arsenal 5. It was an unforgettable outcome on an afternoon the Gunners produced arguably their greatest performance during manager Terry Neill's seven years at the helm.

GGM No 33: Adams clinches FA Cup win over Spurs
FA Cup semi-finals are passionate affairs at the best of times. Throw in a fierce local rivalry and one team's desire for revenge and the game becomes about much more than a shot at the trophy. In 1993 both semis were held at Wembley for the first time, and Arsenal were pitted against their arch-rivals.
