Liverpool v Tottenham 0-0 (League match: May 6, 1967)


May 6, 1967
Key note: “Deposed League champions Liverpool got an empathic lesson in the arts and crafts of Soccer in their 0-0 draw with Spurs. It was super-slick Spurs who brushed aside the fury of Liverpool’s opening attack, marshaled themselves into thick defence, and rolled the ball around with a Rolls-Royce purr. Tommy Lawrence was forced into several phenomenal saves, the best a leap to stop a curling free kick by Jimmy Greaves aimed at a keyhole gap in the defensive wall.” (Daily Express: May 8, 1967)
