Cops arrested 10 people last night after violence erupted after the game.
Officers have been told tables, chairs and glasses were thrown around during the brawl which occurred at the end of the game at Southampton.
Video footage shows the moment the yobs threw chairs in the brutal post-match street battle.
A 61-year-old man was seriously injured after being assaulted and had to be hospitalized.
Police were called to the disorderly fracas shortly after 6 p.m. Saturday night.
A Hampshire Constabulary spokesman said 10 men had been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder.
They added: “Officers are appealing after unrest broke out between football fans in Southampton.”
“At approximately 6.05pm officers were called to report a violent disturbance between Southampton and Tottenham supporters on Terminus Terrace at the junction with Oxford Street.
“It was reported that a number of people were involved in the mess, with tables, chairs and glasses thrown, as well as a man being assaulted.
“The male, a 61-year-old man from Bursledon, suffered facial injuries and went to hospital for treatment.”
Detective Inspector Tim Judd said: ‘It would have been a scary experience for those who witnessed this incident. There would have been plenty of people in the area enjoying their Saturday night who suddenly found themselves at the center of this mess.
