A late goal from Nani and a first-half header by Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic ensured Tottenham's 21-year wait for victory on United's turf continued.
United captain Vidic opened the scoring after 31 pulsating minutes before Nani reacted quickest to some goalmouth confusion to prod home five minutes from time.
Glory Glory Man United Song
Glory, glory, Man United, 
Glory, glory, Man United, 
Glory, glory, Man United, 
And the reds go marching on, on, on. 
Just like the Busby Babes in Days gone by 
We'll keep the Red Flags flying high 
You've got to see yourself from far and wide 
You've got to hear the masses sing with pride 
United! Man United! 
We're the boys in Red and we're on our way to Wem-ber-ly 
Wem-ber-ly! Wem-ber-ly! 
We're the famous Man United and we're going to Wem-ber-ly 
Wem-ber-ly! Wem-ber-ly!
