Man­chester Uni­ted 1 New­castle Uni­ted 1, Old Traf­ford, Eng­lish Pre­mier Lea­gue, Au­gust 21, 1993. Man­chester Uni­ted were held to a 1-1 draw by New­castle Uni­ted in their sec­ond ho­me fix­ture of the sea­son. Ry­an Gig­gs han­ded Uni­ted the lead five min­utes ahead of the break, but The Mag­pies lev­elled the score thro­ugh a goal from Andy Cole in the sec­ond half.

Early pace­set­ters Man­chester Uni­ted came in­to this en­counter on the back of a com­fort­able and com­mand­ing 3-0 tri­umph ag­ainst Shef­field Uni­ted at Old Traf­ford, whilst New­castle Uni­ted had suf­fered a nar­row 2-1 de­feat at the hands of Cov­entry City at High­field Road. As the fir­st ha­lf un­fol­ded, Man­chester Uni­ted got them­selves in front in the 40th min­ute of the con­test when Ry­an Gig­gs ham­mered an un­stoppable free-kick pa­st New­castle shot stop­per Pavel Sr­nicek and in­to the top left cor­ner of the net. Fol­low­ing the re­sump­tion, Kev­in Keegan´s play­ers came a lot more in­to the ga­me and ma­naged to hit back as Andy Cole sco­red his fir­st Pre­mier Lea­gue goal wi­th a fine fin­ish to equal­ise for the vis­it­ing te­am on 70 min­utes. Wales in­ter­na­tion­al Ma­rk Huges came clo­se for Man­chester Uni­ted wi­th just three min­utes re­maining of nor­mal time, but the in­form for­ward was denied by an ex­cel­lent save from Sr­nicek.
