This week marks the 20th anniversary since the last Premier League match was played at Saints' former hallowed ground.

IT was a special day - and unsurprisingly, Matt Le Tissier was the hero once again.

On May 19, 2001, Saints said goodbye to the Dell in stunning style with a 3-2 victory over Arsenal.

They were made to work for it when Ashley Cole and Freddie Ljungberg put Arsenal ahead, but Hassan Kachloul equalised twice.

Daily Echo:

It looked set to be played out as a draw but Le Tissier once again wrote himself into the history books with a last-minute winner to steal the point.

The party was almost spoilt with a good-humoured pitch invasion at the final whistle when an army of stewards did a tremendous job to get the ground clear for a lap of honour to take place.

These pictures show the Dell and were taken just days before the match when an Echo photographer got a rare behind-the-scenes tour of the ground.
