But it was Robinson who would be involved in the most telling moment, when he spilled a cross and allowed Pires to slot the ball into an empty net. Director of Football David Pleat took over first team duties until the end of the season but was unable to inspire Tottenham to a challenge for European qualification, nor either of the cup competitions, and a 14th-place finish in the final table was Tottenham's lowest since 1998. The vast swathe of empty spaces in the visitors' section, well before the final whistle, told the story of another day of derby disappointment for their half of north London. And worse was to follow for the visitors straight from the kick-off when Wilson Palacios gifted possession to Cesc Fabregas, who ran through the heart of a static defence to beat Gomes.
Wenger recalled Manuel Almunia in goal with Lukasz Fabianski sidelined by a thigh injury and Vito Mannone relegated to the bench while Spurs gave starts to Peter Crouch and David Bentley. Arsenal entered the 2003–04 edition as holders of the cup. Subs Not Used: Almunia, Eboue.

"On 42 minutes I felt the crowd were getting onto them, they weren't creating anything worth talking about, and I felt very comfortable. And once ahead, Spurs pushed on - Carrick's shot fizzing wide before a rising shot from Jermaine Jenas worried Lehmann. Boss Harry Redknapp would have been satisfied with how his side had coped with Arsenal's threat until they imploded spectacularly as half-time approached. Arsenal were revelling in the time and space they were being afforded and Eduardo was guilty of squandering an opportunity to make it four when he shot wide with only Gomes to beat after being released by Fabregas. The former Arsenal man, so often a marginal figure in his Spurs career, appeared over-eager to prove a point in the early stages and was fortunate to be spared by the leniency of referee Clattenburg. Tottenham: Robinson, Stalteri, Dawson, King, Lee, Lennon (Reid 73), Jenas, Carrick, Tainio (Pedro Mendes 79), Mido, Defoe (Keane 82).

Tottenham simply indulged in damage limitation until the final whistle - but many of their aspirations have now been placed in context, after they failed to seriously test an Arsenal team they believe they can beat to a place in the Premier League's top four. Spurs, too, had their chances, with a brilliant, mazy dribble and shot from Defoe being one of their best.
Het was nog maar de tweede en voorlopig laatste keer dat zoiets voorviel.
We took advantage of two opportunities and that changed the game completely - it could have been four or five.
Jermain Defoe also went close for Spurs, while Arsenal's Robin van Persie and Freddie Ljungberg threatened. By contrast, Gunners coach Arsene Wenger may have been tempted to tuck the ball under his shirt and refuse to give it back. It jarred Arsenal into life and Ljungberg latched on to Dennis Bergkamp's through-ball, but found Robinson equal to his low left-foot shot.

Arsenal behaalde 90 punten, won 26 wedstrijden en speelde twaalf keer gelijk.

I'm looking up at the clock with three minutes to half time and thinking we've done our job.

We should have scored more.
"It was the kind of game where both teams lacked fluidity in the first 25 minutes. Arsenal FC won in het seizoen 2003/2004 voor de derde keer de Premier League, maar dan wel zonder een duel te verliezen. It would, perhaps, have been the only way for Arsenal to retain possession in the first half.

The away side were surviving in relative comfort and even threatened to prosper as the Emirates crowd started to show signs of frustration, but they gifted Arsenal control of what had been a tightly contested game in a minute of madness shortly before the interval. Wenger later said Bendtner can expect to be out "for a while". Spurs keeper Gomes has been dogged by inconsistency - as he was to subsequently prove - but he showed his best side when he saved superbly from Fabregas after 20 minutes when Andrey Arshavin's effort deflected invitingly into his path off King. A 2003 online survey found that Arsenal supporters most dislike Tottenham, and that Tottenham fans see Arsenal as their main rival.

Arsenal emphatically swept aside claims from Tottenham that they were ready to challenge the supremacy of their north London rivals with a convincing victory at the Emirates. It jarred Arsenal into life and Ljungberg latched on to Dennis Bergkamp's through-ball, but found Robinson equal to his low left-foot shot. Spurs needed to find a way back into a game in which they had self-destructed, and Bentley almost provided hope with a long-range free-kick turned over the top in acrobatic fashion by Almunia.

Robbie Keane had insisted, perhaps unwisely given the timing, that they now had a squad capable of competing with their neighbours.
But it soon became clear that the absence of suspended Jermain Defoe, injured Aaron Lennon and long-term casualty Luka Modric had robbed Tottenham of a crucial cutting edge. Substitutes Van Persie and Pires changed Arsenal's fortunes - they had looked to be heading for defeat at the hands of Spurs for the first time in six years. Arsenal were forced into a change two minutes later when Nicklas Bendtner, who had made a bright start, signalled to the bench that was struggling with an injury and limped off, to be replaced by Eduardo. But the England defender recovered to win possession with a superbly-timed challenge in the penalty area. Noureddine Naybet volleyed Spurs ahead before Thierry Henry levelled in first- half injury-time and Lauren's penalty put Arsenal ahead after 53 minutes. I could see us certainly getting a big result.
It also ended any hopes Spurs may have harboured of ending a winless league sequence against Arsenal that now stretches back 20 games. Any lingering optimism that Redknapp's side could follow in the footsteps of West Ham and claw back a two-goal lead against Arsenal was snuffed out by more crass defending that saw the hosts add another on the hour. Then, as if to confirm their defensive incompetence of the first half was by no means an accident, Spurs switched off fatally once more as Arsenal extended their lead with a third goal on the hour.
