Comments:

League position: 1st Unused substitutes: Tomasz Kuszczak and Wes Brown The attendance of 76,004 created a new Premiership record and also the highest for a Manchester United game at Old Trafford. The ground record still remains at 76,962 for the FA Cup semi-final between Grimsby Town and Wolverhampton Wanderers on 25 March 1939. This game took place two days before the 20th anniversary of Sir Alex Ferguson being appointed the manager of Manchester United.

League position: 4th Unused substitutes: Dean Kiely and Nwankwo Kanu
