Tottenham 3-5 Manchester United
Champions Manchester United staged a magnificent comeback to overwhelm Tottenham at White Hart Lane.
Spurs had been 3-0 up at half time after outplaying their opponents.
Dean Richards made a dream start to his Tottenham career by scoring the early opener on his debut and Les Ferdinand and Christian Ziege added further goals.
At the break Richards must have thought he had joined one of England’s top teams – but 45 minutes later he would have been under no such illusions.
United were a transformed side after the interval and simply swept Tottenham aside.
Andy Cole, Laurent Blanc, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Juan Sebastian Veron and David Beckham scored as United completed a remarkable comeback.
