Man Utd host Tottenham Hotspur for 100th time



Our biggest winning margin is the 5-0 romp in the first league meeting, at Bank Street on 22 January during 1909/10, with goals from Edward Connor, Arthur Hooper, Billy Meredith and two from Charlie Roberts.

It’s one of three occasions on which United have scored five.

The others were a 5-1 success on 18 December 1965 (Charlton, Law 2, Beal og, Herd) and the remarkable 5-2 triumph of 25 April in 2008/09, as the Reds overturned a 2-0 half-time deficit to remain three points clear of Liverpool, en route to that record-equalling 18th title.

Spurs were blown away by four goals in just 14 minutes, with two apiece for Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney. Ex-Spur Dimitar Berbatov rubbed salt in the wound, tapping in a fifth goal.
