Man Utd 4-0 Tottenham

With Liverpool beating Newcastle and Arsenal seeing off Derby the night before United desperately needed all three points against Spurs to keep them in contention for the title. Beckham opening the scoring early on, therefore, was a great relief to 65,000 reds at Old Trafford. Before the Liverpool game had even kicked off (scousers stealing their own team’s floodlights; oh dear) United were in a driving position. Wave after wave of attack through a rather shaky looking Spurs side deserved more goals. It was not until the stroke of half time that Scholesy was judged to have been knocked over in the opposition area, and although it was a very dubious decision Ruud had no trouble doubling the lead.

The second half marked the ageing of Forlan. Although his finishing had much to be desired his all round play was superb. His pass to Ruud led to Beck’s second, and soon after a great piece of coolness lead to Ruud’s second and United’s forth.

A good atmosphere, three easy points, a clean sheet and still top of the table. All in all a great night.
