“Down the years few clubs have provided better entertainment when they’ve met than Spurs and Manchester United…” – John Motson, 1986.

Motson made this statement before one of the most memorable clashes between the two sides at Old Trafford. David Pleat’s Spurs side fought to a thrilling 3-3 draw with Manchester United, as the flair of Glenn Hoddle and Chris Waddle took on the grit of Bryan Robson and Norman Whiteside.

The highlight of the match was Gary Mabbutt’s magnificent flying header. Before the class of 2015 take to the pitch, sit back and watch how it was done in 1986.
