- Peter Schmeichel revealed that he was sacked temporarily by Alex Ferguson after this game: "It was my fault, that is what Fergie said, because all my goal-kicks had gone straight to Razor Ruddock. It was ridiculous and I reacted, giving him a lot of abuse. The following day he called me into his office and sacked me. I didn't want to stay anyway. So I said 'Fine'."
