The final game of this weekend’s Premier League programme will see Manchester United play Spurs at White Hart Lane in the tea-time game on Sunday. If Tottenham are to turn top-four aspirations into consistent realities they really should improve their Premier League record against United.
No other Premier League club has gained more victories at White Hart Lane than United and, of course, Spurs have yet to taste a Premier League victory at Old Trafford. In a total of 37 Premier League games home and away with United, Tottenham have just three victories to date, and only seven draws. Here are those wins:
1 Jan 1996 Tottenham 4 Man Utd 1
23 Oct 1999 Tottenham 3 Man Utd 1
19 May 2001 Tottenham 3 Man Utd 1
This May will see the 10th anniversary of that last victory. During that time Spurs and United have met home and away 19 times in the League with United winning 15, and four games drawn. Ouch.
Here is the complete record of the clubs that have and haven’t won at White Hart Lane, of the current Premier League clubs.
