Spurs in History - 28th October

28th October, 1972
Manchester United 1 Spurs 4 (1st Division)
An exciting score line with all of the goals being scored by Martin Peters. Spurs had lost all of their previous nine League visits to Old Trafford but they over turned that record in style.
United were having a poor season and although Spurs form to that point hadn’t been great they managed to put on a stylish display that day to win comfortably. Mike Dillon made his debut alongside Mike England in central defence, replacing the injured Phil Beal.
This was Spurs second away win of the season and Martin Peters had taken over as captain at the start of the season, Alan Mullery having been transferred to Fulham.

Team: Jennings, Evans, Knowles, Pratt, England, Dillon, Pearce, Perryman, Chivers, Peters, Coates (Neighbour)

Obviously, a good day to play Manchester United. This was the second time in three seasons that Spurs and United had met in the League Cup, 2nd Round. This time Spurs triumphed - a goal ahead from the first leg, Spurs completed the double win with a goal from Micky Hazard.

Their opponents in the next round were Wrexham at White Hart lane, as Spurs progressed to the Final at Wembley where they lost to Liverpool, Spurs first Wembley defeat.
