Manchester United had been knocked out of the FA Cup by Tottenham Hotspur just three days earlier and were definately out for revenge in this match. But it was The White Hart Laners who took the lead when previous Southampton attacker Martin Chivers converted a magnificent pass from Three Lions international midfielder Alan Mullery after only two minutes of play. Manchester United quickly recovered, however, as George Best smashed home the equalising goal for the visiting side in the 18th minute of the encounter. World Cup winner Bobby Charlton then missed a penalty, but the long serving stalwart redeemed himself by hitting the winner for Manchester United a mere two minutes from full time to earn the red shirts both points at White Hart Lane.
