Tottenham Hotspur ended 23-year winless league run at Old Trafford by beating Manchester United 3 - 2 in a thrilling match on Saturday.
Andre Villas-Boas walk around in desperation as the play run beyond four-minute extra time and then clenched his fist in excitement when the referee blew the final whistle, as his team secured first league win at Old Trafford since 1989.
Jan Vertonghen, Gareth Bale and Clint Dempsey scored a goal apiece to mark Manchester United's second loss of the season. Nani and Kagawa scord for the Red Devils in the second half but that was not enough.
Giving spark to the Spurs, Vertonghen scored just two minutes into the game. Doubling the lead, Bale sent Sandro's pass into the net in the 32 minute.
The second half started with new vigor as three goals were scored in quick succession. Nani opened account for Manchester United by scoring in the 51 minute but Dempsey replied with an easy goal after Anders Lindegaard sent Defoe's kick straight to him. Then Kagawa gave hope to Manchester United by sending the ball into Friedel's net after hitting the far post in the very next minute.
Manchester United tried their best to come back with the ball rolling around mostly in the Tottenham's half and they did get a few good chance to score but failed to convert them.
Rooney's free kick from 25 yards hit the side bar and Paul Scholes' long range kick was brilliantly saved by the Spurs' goalkeeper. Robin Van Persie too got a chance to score but sent the ball wide. A pass to Rooney, who was running into the middle, would have been a better choice. Then Carrick's header of a corner kick hit the top corner bar.
The Manchester United did get a few chances to at least level the score, if not win, but Tottenham's defensive play towards the end of the second half left their strikers without much space.
With the victory, the Spurs have climbed to the fifth position in the score table with 11 points, while Sir Alex Ferguson's team is in the third position with 12 points.
