Super Subs!

As part of a regular series, we take a look at the matches in which a substitute has made a real impact for us.


Teddy Sheringham v Norwich City (Away) – Premier League, April 2, 1994

Teddy Sheringham was the top scorer in the inaugural season of the Premier League in 1992-93 with 21 goals in 38 domestic matches for us, plus a further strike on the opening weekend of that campaign for former club Nottingham Forest.

His fine form continued at the start of the 1993-94 season with nine goals in our opening 10 league matches, while he also got a brace in a 3-1 League Cup win against Burnley on October 6, 1993. Results were going well too, with Ossie Ardiles’ side having won five, drawn three and lost just two of their opening league matches ahead of a trip to Manchester United on October 16, 1993.

On that autumn afternoon at Old Trafford, Sheringham sustained a serious knee injury that saw him ruled out for over half of the season.
