Tottenham welcome Man United to White Hart Lane on Sunday looking for their first league double over Fergie in 23 years, since the likes of Gary Lineker and Paul Gascoigne inspired home and away wins against Fergie's men in the First Division. Andre Villas-Boas' side stunned the 19-time champions at Old Trafford in September when Clint Dempsey, Gareth Bale and a Jonny Evans own goal earned the club a 3-2 win, the first Spurs side to do so since 1989. If they are successful they will join a select group of clubs do so in the Premier League era (1992/93 season onwards)...
Chelsea 1-0 Man United: 11/09/93
Man United 0-1 Chelsea: 05/03/94
Chelsea became the first team to defeat Premier League champions United in the 1993/94 season, after the Red Devils' success in the first ever Premier League campaign, which came about after English football's top flight broke away from the Football League in 1992. At this time Chelsea were nothing like the force they would become in later years and would go on to finish 14th in a 22 team Premier League, 41 points behind United. Gavin Peacock, now a Christian pastor in Canada, scored the only goal of the game at Stamford Bridge in September 1993, which was United's first loss since Oldham beat them 1-0 win in March. Peacock was again on target at Old Trafford, but it was Fergie's men who had the last laugh as they won the League and Cup double, beating Chelsea 4-0 to lift the 1994 FA Cup.
Arsenal 3-2 Man United: 09/11/97
Man United 0-1 Arsenal: 14/03/98
With Arsene Wenger having been in charge for a year, the Gunners were showing signs that they were capable of challenging for a first title since 1991, ahead of their first meeting with Man United in the 97/98 season. Sitting third in the table, four points behind the table-topping Red Devils, Arsenal desperately needed a result at Highbury against the back-to-back defending champions. Nicolas Anelka and Patrick Vieira put the Gunners two up with less than half an hour on the clock, but a Teddy Sheringham double pulled United level by half-time. With seven minutes remaining, a David Platt header secured all three points for the Gooners and, perhaps just as importantly, belief that they could really challenge. Arsenal travelled to Old Trafford in March trailing Fergie's team by nine points at the top, but with three games in hand and Marc Overmars' winner was the second of a 10 consecutive Premier League wins that sealed the title.
Man United 0-1 Liverpool: 17/12/00
Liverpool 2-0 Man United: 31/03/01
Liverpool's 1-0 win at Old Trafford a week before Christmas was the Reds' first win against Man United in 10 matches and the Red Devils' first home loss in the league for two years. A curling free-kick from Danny Murphy at the Stretford End was enough to seal three points for Gerard Houllier's team. By the time the two clubs met at Anfield at the end of March, United were well on their way to another title, but conceding a first league double since 1979 to their great rivals hurt. Steven Gerrard and Robbie Fowler grabbed two thumping goals to see off United on Merseyside, despite the hero at Old Trafford, Danny Murphy, seeing red. Success against Ferguson's team was yet another high point in a remarkable campaign that saw Liverpool become the first English club to win three knockout cup competitions in one season.
Arsenal 3-1 Man United: 25/11/01
Man United 0-1 Arsenal: 08/05/02
Liverpool 3-1 Man United: 04/11/01
Man United 0-1 Liverpool: 22/01/02
Old Trafford was anything but a fortress in the 2001/02 season as Middlesbrough, West Ham, Bolton and Chelsea all joined Liverpool and Arsenal in winning there, but only the latter two managed to beat the defending champions home and away. The Reds actually recorded a treble over their north west rivals in the 2001/02 season after beating United in the Charity Shield. When Danny Murphy again secured another three points at Old Trafford, following a 3-1 triumph at Anfield, the Reds were celebrating five straight wins against United. Arsenal were toasting three successes over United, too, with a 4-0 League Cup win preceding a 3-1 victory at Highbury, then a famous 1-0 win at Old Trafford where they clinched the Premier League thanks to a Sylvain Wiltord goal. In addition, talkSPORT's Ray Parlour helped clinch another double for Arsenal with this goal.
Chelsea 1-0 Man United: 15/08/04
Man United 1-3 Chelsea: 10/05/05
Jose Mourinho got his Chelsea reign off to a winning start thanks to Eidur Gudjohnsen's goal at Stamford Bridge and by the time United got Chelsea back to their place, the Blues were champions, with United having to suffer the humiliation of giving their opponents a guard of honour as they entered the Old Trafford pitch. Tiago, Gudjohnsen again and Joe Cole cancelled out Ruud van Nistelrooy's opener to rub salt into Fergie's wounds. Mourinho's men also lifted the League Cup that season, beating United on their way to the Millennium Stadium.
Man United 1-2 Blackburn: 24/09/05
Blackburn 4-3 Man United: 01/02/06
Not even talkSPORT's Andy Jacobs can remember the last time Blackburn recorded a league double over Man United, but in 2006, a David Bentley hat-trick ensured it. In the first match, Ruud van Nistelrooy's goal for United at Old Trafford was bookended by two Morten Gamst Pedersen strikes and a Van Nistelrooy brace and Louis Saha effort at Ewood Park could not stop Rovers holding on for a memorable win. They came close again in 2011 when leaving Manchester with a 3-2 win, but were beaten at home in a season that saw them relegated.
West Ham 1-0 Man United: 17/12/06
Man United 0-1 West Ham: 13/05/07
Man United 0-1 Arsenal: 17/09/06
Arsenal 2-1 Man United: 21/01/07
Chelsea had Nigel Reo Coker to thank after his goal cut Man United's lead at the top of the Premier League to two points in Alan Curbishley's first game in charge at Upton Park. The real excitement, though, came on the final day of the season in May 2007. Carlos Tevez was the Hammers hero as his goal kept the east Londoners in the Premier League, much to the annoyance of Neil Warnock and Sheffield United. West Ham needed a point to guarantee their safety and against a weakened United team, who were already champions, they seized all three to pull off a relegation great escape. Tevez duly joined United.
Incredibly, Arsenal were still waiting on their first win of the season in mid-September 2006 when they arrived in Manchester. Emmanuel Adebayor's winner five minutes from time gave the Gunners a win and despite following the Old Trafford victory with another at the Emirates, courtesy of Robin Van Persie and Thierry Henry, the Gunners still finished a massive 15 points off the title-winng Red Devils at the end of the season.
Man City 1-0 Man United: 19/08/07
Man United 1-2 Man City: 10/02/08
City travelled the short distance home in February 2008 ecstatic after a fine double over their Manchester rivals following a very emotional afternoon at Old Trafford. The two sides wore special shirts to mark the 50th anniversary of the Munich air disaster, but the home side were beaten by Darius Vassell and Benjani strikes, with Michael Carrick scoring a consolation goal late on. Earlier in the campaign, City's surprise 1-0 win put them top of the table after three games, seven points ahead of United, but the Red Devils were still crowned champions in May.
Liverpool 2-1 Man United: 13/09/08
Man United 1-4 Liverpool: 14/03/09
Liverpool fans were left dreaming of a first Premier League title after thumping United 4-1 at Old Trafford, a win that left them just four points behind Fergie's leaders in mid-March. Home fans had already began leaving the stadium, presumably to get the train back to London, by the time Andrea Dossena made it four after Fernando Torres, Steven Gerrard and Fabio Aurelio's goals. Liverpool's famous victory followed the tense affair Anfield, which saw the first of Nemanja Vidic's three red cards in the fixture, but at the end of the season the Reds were forced to make do with second place.
Chelsea 1-0 Man United: 08/11/09
Man United 1-2 Chelsea: 03/04/10
Chelsea and Man United battled at the top of the table throughout the 2009/10 season and it was the Blues, guided by Carlo Ancelotti, who succeeded. John Terry scored the game's only goal at Stamford Bridge and Joe Cole and Didier Drogba goals at Old Trafford ensured proved crucial in the titke race, with Chelsea going on to lift the FA Cup at Wembley, too.
Man United 1-6 Man City: 23/10/11
Man City 1-0 Man United: 30/04/12
“It’s the worst result in my history, ever. Even as a player I don’t think I ever lost 6-1,” said Sir Fergie after the embarrassing home defeat to neighbours City in October 2011. It got worse for United. Three weeks prior to the second Manchester derby of the season, they led City in the league by eight points. However, once captain Vincent Kompany's powerful header crashed into back of the United net, City regained control of the title race, edging ahead of their rivals on goal difference. It was City's to lose and they didn't let up until the skipper was lifting the club's first league trophy since 1968.
