Mark Stein’s winner for Chelsea vs Tottenham will make you weep

In 1993/94 Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur played out a Premier League classic at Stamford Bridge.  Hoddle v Ardiles.  Kharine v Walker.   Stein v Rosenthal.  Amiga v Holsten.  It was 3-3 into the dying minutes until a dramatic end.

Spurs went two goals up in the space of 2 minutes through Steve Sedgley and Jason Dozzell before Chelsea hit back.  Mal Donaghy.  Mark Stein.  John Spencer.  3-2 all before half time.  High fives from Glenn Hoddle all round.

Spurs pulled it back to 3-3 through an Andy Gray penalty – his last appearance for Spurs before moving to Marbella – before drama struck.

John Spencer flicked it on.  Gavin Peacock dribbled into the box before being speared by Dean Austin.  Penalty.  Austin looked distraught.  Could Mark Stein hold his nerve?  Hell yeah.  He tucked the penalty away past an onlooking Ian Walker.

Chelsea were wearing one of the greatest Premier League kits of all time.  It ticks all the boxes.  Umbro print on the shirt.  Huge collar and crest and an amazing sponsor.  You can get the Chelsea 93/94 football shirt here (on sale:  £35 down from £42).
