Premier League record crowd watches Tottenham beat Man Utd at Wembley

A total of 81,978 fans witnessed a 2-0 victory for Mauricio Pochettino’s side over Jose Mourinho’s men at Wembley on Wednesday evening

Tottenham defeated Manchester United 2-0 at Wembley on Wednesday evening, and did so in front of a Premier League record crowd.

A total of 81,978 fans turned out to see Spurs beat Jose Mourinho’s men by virtue of Christian Eriksen’s strike after 11 seconds and Phil Jones’ own goal.

Spurs also held the previous Premier League record attendance, with 80,827 witnessing their thumping 4-1 win over Liverpool earlier this season.

Eriksen almost set a record of his own with his stunningly early goal, scored after 11 seconds, just two seconds slower than Ledley King’s goal against Bradford.

It was, however, the fastest goal Manchester United have ever conceded in the Premier League.

Spurs are now just five points behind United, who remain second, and are two behind Liverpool and Chelsea in third and fourth respectively.
