2. Tottenham’s 6-1 thrashing of Manchester United at Old Trafford
In what turned out to be Jose Mourinho’s biggest margin of victory as club manager, Tottenham humiliated Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford way back in October.
The demolishing of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side made Tottenham faithful believe a title push was possible. It was not only the heaviest defeat since Solskjaer took temporary charge in December 2018, but also the largest United have suffered since Ed Woodward took over as executive vice-chairman in 2013.
It was also Tottenham’s biggest win at Old Trafford and matches their record home win over United, 6-1 in September 1932.
Gary Neville went on one of his infamous rants in the aftermath, condemning an “absolutely pathetic” United side.
I remember watching, thinking the performance was a defining moment in both side’s seasons. Unfortunately things didn’t pan out the way most of us envisioned, but we always have that scoreline to fondly reminisce about over a cold, refreshing pint.
