Harry Redknapp's first game as manager of Tottenham could not have been more lively.
His new side travelled to the Emirates for a North London derby in October 2008.
Spurs were 1-0 up following a spectacular strike from David Bentley.
The lead was cancelled out following goals by Silvestre, Gallas and Adebayor.
Despite pulling a goal back through Darren Bent, Arsenal appeared to have secured victory after Robin van Persie scored the fourth with 20 minutes remaining.
As the game approached the 90th minute mark, Jermaine Jenas curled in what appeared to be nothing more than a consolation goal for Tottenham.
But with just seconds left of the four minutes of injury time, Modric's shot deflected onto the woodwork and Aaron Lennon was in position to slot home the equaliser and spark wild scenes of jubilation.
