[ENGLAND] In the third round of the English FA Cup, third division Leeds United upset rival Manchester United, 1-0, at Old Trafford. In the fourth round, it put in another inspired performance, coming from two goals down to tie Tottenham, 2-2, at White Hart Lane. The second goal came from third-round hero Jermaine Beckford, whose penalty kick in the sixth minute of stoppage time earned Leeds a replay.

Spurs led on goals by Peter Crouch and Roman Pavlyuchenko, but Beckford's second goal of the game stunned the Spurs crowd.

Another third-round giant killer Reading won its second game against an EPL team with a 1-0 win over Burnley. The Royals had beaten Liverpool in the third round.

In the only Premier League match to go ahead, Manchester United temporarily moved into first place with a 4-0 win over Hull City thanks to Wayne Rooney's four goals.
