  • Assist: Darren Anderton. "Anderton drifted past his man and slipped a pass to Barmby. He drew the goalkeeper, steered the ball past him, but hit the post...The ball rebounded back into his path and, though it came at a difficult height, he scored with aplomb." Nicky Barmby1st of 4 goals, 30'
  • Assist: Paul Gascoigne. "The confidence flowed back into [Barmby's] game and, eight minutes after half-time, he added an exquisite second, chipping the goalkeeper after a sweeping passing move between Gary Neville, Anderton and Gascoigne." Nicky Barmby2nd of 4 goals, 53'
  • Assist: Darren Anderton. "Gascoigne's joy was deserved: he had an excellent game and his 62nd-minute goal was cheekily taken with the outside of his foot following a classy one-two with Anderton." Paul Gascoigne7th of 10 goals, 64'
