Match No. 652 - Wednesday, 13th December 1989

  • Assist: Chris Waddle. Lineker wins a cheap free kick after only 9 seconds. Waddle whips in the free kick to the far post where Robson beats his man to nod past the right hand of the keeper. Bryan Robson25th of 26 goals, 1' (00:38)
  • Assist: Steve Bull. Parker plays a quick one-two with Lineker and is away down the right and into the area. His pass to Bull is slightly behind the striker and Bull can only get a heel to it which sets it up for the incoming Robson who bangs a left footed shot into the side netting. Bryan Robson26th of 26 goals, 71'
