Tottenham Hotspur. Spurs were appearing in their third final in seven seasons, having won the trophy in 1981 and 1982 and were strong favourites, while unfancied Coventry were appearing in their first ever domestic cup final. Spurs were going for a record eighth victory and had never lost a final. Coventry eventually triumphed 3–2 after extra time.
Keith Houchen scored one of the most iconic Cup final goals in history during the match. A brilliant diving header - Houchen propelled himself through the air at full length, the photographs of the moment forever capturing the glory of the occasion.
"The cross came in and I never took my eyes off it. I had to throw myself at it, or I would never have got on the end of it. I can't say I was consciously thinking: 'If it comes in, I'm going to dive and head it'. It's all instinct," Houchen explained in Jonathan Strange's A Tenner And A Box Of Kippers.
