Rafael van der Vaart and Gareth Bale celebrate during the Premier League match between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur at Emirates Stadium, London, November 2010.

Can you name Spurs’ XI from their 3-2 comeback win at Arsenal in 2010?

On November 20, 2010, Tottenham Hotspur played their part in one of the most memorable North London derbies in history with a 3-2 comeback victory over Arsenal. How well do you remember that side?

To jog your memory: goals from Samir Nasri and Marouane Chamakh (of all people) gave the Gunners a two-goal lead within the opening half an hour. But Spurs raced back with three second-half goals to register their first win away at Arsenal in 17 years.

“I gave them a rollicking at half-time, and woke them up a bit,” Harry Redknapp said afterwards.

“We took the game to them from the start of the second half. We had to go for broke. It wasn’t a case of trying to stem the tide, it was a case of trying to get back into the game.

“We were either going to get beat 5-0, or have a go. That’s what we did, because that’s my nature.”

He added: “We can beat anybody. This has put us right back in the race again. It’s wide open. “If my players believe in themselves as much as I do, we can achieve anything.”

Spurs went on to finish fifth but that shouldn’t detract from a famous victory at the Emirates.

We’re asking you to name the 11 players that Redknapp chose in his starting line-up that afternoon. The time to beat from the Planet Football office is 01:34 but any Spurs fans worth their salt will fancy their chances of beating us.
