Our first, of course, came in June 2020, when a 1-1 draw between the sides signalled the resumption of our campaign after the first COVID-19 lockdown in the UK.
Bruno Fernandes’s 81st-minute penalty ensured we claimed a crucial point in the battle for Champions League qualification, after Steven Bergwijn’s opener, and we’re sure this weekend’s clash will be just as hotly contested, as the home side once again strive to make the top four.
In order to whet your appetite, here are five of the very best United wins against Spurs on their home patch during the Premier League era, starting with 1997’s season opener…
SPURS 0-2 UNITED, 1997/98
A trip to the old White Hart Lane was always a fierce prospect, especially on the first day of a campaign, but extra fuel was poured on the fire in August 1997, with Spurs old boy Teddy Sheringham returning to his old stomping ground, just months after transferring to United. For 80 minutes, it was an unhappy return for the England international, who was on the receiving end of a nasty tackle from Ramon Vega before smashing his first-half penalty against the post, much to the delight of the home support. Fortunately for United, two goals in two minutes – the first from Nicky Butt, the second a Vega own goal – ensured Teddy could raise a wry smile at full-time.
