46. The sun sets on Leeds

On 16 April 2004, 11 months after Leeds had come to Highbury and ruined the hosts' title hopes while saving their Premier League place, they came back and were demolished 5-0. Robert Pires started the rout but Thierry Henry really put the Yorkshiremen to the sword with four goals.

Nine days later, Arsenal made the short trip to White Hart Lane. The 2-2 draw was enough to win the league at the home of their biggest rivals - just as they had in 1971.  

Leeds were relegated at the end of the season and have yet to return to the top flight.
