Comments:

League position: 2nd Unused substitutes: Tim Howard, Wes Brown and Gerard Pique The attendance of 70,908 not only created a new Premiership record but also became the highest for a Manchester United game at Old Trafford. The previous best of 70,504 dates back to a First Division game against Aston Villa on 27 December 1920. The ground record still remains at 76,962 for the FA Cup semi-final between Grimsby Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers on 25 March 1939.
