Wembley – Saturday 9th May

1981 FA Cup Final

Tottenham Hotspur 1 (Hutchinson og) Manchester City 1 (Hutchinson)

Tottenham Hotspur : Aleksic, Houghton, Miller, Roberts, Perryman, Villa(Brooke), Ardiles, Archibald, Galvin, Hoddle, Crooks



Manchester City : Corrigan, Ranson, McDonald, Reid, Power, Caton, Bennett, Gow, Mackenzie, Hutchinson(Henry), Reeves.

This was the 100th FA Cup final and just the 10th final to end in a draw, in fact it was only the 2nd FA Cup Final to get as a draw since 1912.

Tommy Hutchison opened up the scoring for Manchester City with a header in the 30th minute and the score stayed like that until the 79th minute when Glen Hoddle fired towards goal which appeared to be well covered the Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Corrigan, but the ball took a deflection off of Tommy Hutchinson and into the goal, and with no further goals during normal time, extra time was needed, Tommy Hutchinson was substituted during extra time, but no further goals came so a replay was needed.

Tommy Hutchinson has one of the dubious records of scoring for both sides in a FA Cup Final.

Replay – Wembley – Wednesday 14th May

1981 FA Cup Final ReplayTottenham Hotspur 3 (Villa 2, Crooks) Manchester City 2 (Mackenzie, Reeves (Pen))

Tottenham Hotspur : Aleksic, Houghton, Miller, Roberts, Perryman, Villa, Ardiles, Archibald, Galvin, Hoddle, Crooks



Manchester City : Corrigan, Ranson, McDonald(Tueart), Reid, Gow Power, Mackenzie, Reeves, Bennett, Hutchinson.

This was the first time that a FA Cup Final replay was played at Wembley.

It took just 8 minutes for Tottenham to score a shot blocked by Joe Corrigan only for Ricardo Villa to follow up and score the opener, but three minutes later Manchester City equalised with a goal from Steve Mackenzie. With the second half only four minutes old, it was Manchester City that took the lead with a Kevin Reeves penalty, Paul Miller’s challenged Dave Bennett who went down in the penalty-area and Manchester City were awarded a penalty.

Tottenham took control of the game and with a Garth Crooks equaliser in the 70th minute and then a moment of magic from the Argentinan Ricardo Villa who dribbled the ball straight through the Manchester City defence and then past Joe Corrigan. Undoubtedly one of the greatest goals in the FA Cup Finals of all time.
