A mere 27 years have come and gone since Tottenham Hotspur – who are now, of course, London’s ‘most dominant team’ – last made it to an FA Cup Final.
Since that 1990/91 appearance, which saw Spurs take the trophy after a 2-1 defeat of Notts Forest, they have gone on to eclipse city rivals Chelsea (2016/17 Premier League champions) and Arsenal (2016/17 FA Cup champions) by finishing as the capital’s highest-ranked league side on a whopping one occasion – soon to be two.
In that same period, they have swept the boards with the Blues and the Gunners, romping to an impressive trophy haul of two League Cups, compared to Chelsea’s pathetic five Premier Leagues, six FA Cups and four League Cups, and Arsenal’s miserable three Premier Leagues, eight FA Cups and one League Cup. Truly, Spurs reign supreme in London.
Now, with the Lilywhites poised to win a place in their first FA Cup showpiece of this century – all they have to do is beat Manchester United – it’s worth looking back at the 20 other clubs who have made it there in the interim.
How many of them can you recall?
