But which was the best?
We’ve drawn up a shortlist of what we think are the 12 finest strikes scored in front of our west stand over the last 25 years.
Watch the video below to see each effort in all its glory, before casting your vote. It’s all killer, no filler!
CANTONA V ARSENAL (20/03/1996)
Eric scored a belting free-kick against the Gunners at this very end during the 1993/94 campaign, but for our money, this strike is even better. After a young Phil Neville’s cross was headed clear by Tony Adams, ‘the King’ chested the ball down and volleyed in, off the crossbar, to keep the Reds in touch with Newcastle at the top of the table.
BECKHAM V BARCELONA (16/09/1998)
Beckham was known for his brilliant free-kicks, and his successful set-pieces against Spurs and Greece (for England) were particularly memorable examples. But arguably the archetypal ‘bend it like Beckham’ moment came in the midst of the 3-3 thriller United and Barcelona served up, during the group stage of our 1998/99 Champions League campaign.
