Well... that was something. Down 2-0 to Tottenham Hotspur at halftime, Manchester United added Wayne Rooney to their attack and managed to claw their way back into the match when Nani surged forward and beat Brad Friedel with an angled finish to make it 2-1.
No sooner could you say 'United are back in this', however, than Spurs marched up the other end and got the goal right back. Anders Lindegaard could only parry Gareth Bale's low drive into Clint Dempsey's path, and the American was quite happy to poke into the open net for his first Tottenham goal.
And then, just as you were saying that 'Old Tottenham' would have had a meltdown after conceding at Old Trafford, Tottenham had a meltdown. Shinji Kagawa was left totally unmarked at the top of Friedel's penalty area, and a simple through ball picked out the former BVB star, who was able to turn and slot home at the far post to make it 3-2. Got all that? Phew.
