Violence erupted after the two teams played at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on a Sunday afternoon on January 15.
During the large ruckus, one fan was punched to the side of the head – sending him tumbling onto the tracks.
One man could be seen shouting at a rival while holding a can as station staff tried to keep them apart.
As the pair rowed, another man sucker-punched the alleged victim from the side – sending the platform into chaos.
The man climbed back onto the platform, as the two sides pushed and shoved each other.
As they were pushed back along the platform a can of beer was thrown in the air and another man was pushed to the floor.
Now police have released mobile phone footage of the scuffle in a bid to track down the perpetrators.
Police Sergeant Ben Roberts, of the British Transport Police (BTP), said the attack could have “easily” let to the alleged victim being killed.
He added: “We have absolutely zero tolerance for football related violence on the railway network, and treat incidents like this extremely seriously.
“Had a train been pulling in at the time we could easily have been dealing with a murder investigation – so it’s vital we identify those responsible so we can take action.
“I would urge anyone who recognises those involved to get in touch with us.”
Anyone who recognises those in the video can contact BTP by texting 61016 or calling 0800 405040, quoting reference 2300005066.
