Video: London comeback

One of Manchester United's most amazing comebacks came at White Hart Lane on 29 September 2001.

The Reds were reeling at the break as goals from Dean Richards, Les Ferdinand and Christian Ziege handed Glenn Hoddle's Spurs a commanding 3-0 lead.

Andrew Cole's header from a Gary Neville cross had the hosts quaking a minute after the restart and a famous fightback continued when Laurent Blanc converted a David Beckham corner. With 18 minutes left, Ruud van Nistelrooy levelled the scores and a wonderful move culminated in Juan Sebastian Veron edging United ahead soon afterwards.

Beckham added the coup de grace with a beautiful piece of chest control before despatching his shot past Neil Sullivan, the keeper he beat from the halfway line at Selhurst Park.
