Tottenham Hotspur had already won the league and were aiming to be the first club since 1897 to win both the FA Cup and League Champions in the same season.

Leicester City managed to keep Tottenham at bay for most of the first half and it wasn’t until a injury to Leicester City’s Len Chalmers midway through the first half that Tottenham started to display there superiority, Chalmers did remain on the pitch as substitutes had still not been introduced in 1961, he eventually went off with 10 minutes left to play, but at this stage the game was beyond Leicester City.

Tottenham had a goal disallowed at 38 minutes for offside, so the first half ended goal less. The breakthrough never came until the 66th minute a goal from Bobby Smith firing the ball goalward bound past Gordon Banks. Tottenham were rejuvenated and nine minutes later sealed the game by Terry Dyson scoring with his head. 2-0 to Tottenham and they achieved the ‘DOUBLE’.
