From Cantona’s chip to Rooney’s bicycle – Manchester United’s best Premier League goals

A look back through the Old Trafford archives offers a striking masterclass from some of the greatest marksmen to have graced English football, with the likes of Mark Hughes, Andy Cole, Dwight Yorke and Ruud van Nistelrooy having plundered goals for the club.

Every United fan has their own favourite goal from the Premier League era, with unforgettable hits lighting up each of the 13 title triumphs achieved under Sir Alex Ferguson.

We’ve picked out eight of the very best, all of which came during the Ferguson era – a time when goals were easier to come by than they have been of late for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

David Beckham v Wimbledon, August 17, 1996

It was the opening day of the 1996-97 season and Ferguson gave the number 10 shirt to the 21-year-old midfielder David Beckham.

United were already 2-0 up and heading for a straightforward victory at Selhurst Park when Beckham received the ball from Brian McClair and, from just inside his own half, launched it audaciously into the air, over the head of Dons goalkeeper Neil Sullivan and into the net.

It was one of the most memorable goals in Premier League history and one Beckham himself names as the pick of his career.

Eric Cantona v Sunderland, December 20, 1996

Four months after Beckham’s famous lob, United were 4-0 up against Sunderland at Old Trafford when Eric Cantona – in what was to be his final season at the club – collected the ball just inside the Black Cats’ half.

The enigmatic Frenchman drove forward in possession, exchanged passes with Brian McClair, and then produced an exquisite chip over the stranded Lionel Perez that clipped the inside of the post on the way in.

He then turned, flipped his collar, and spawned a celebration that would be imitated by United fans everywhere for years to come.

Paul Scholes v Bradford City, March 25, 2000

Paul Scholes has spoken about the understanding he shared with Beckham during their days at United, and that intuition paid off in spades at Valley Parade in 1999-2000.

Beckham sent a corner straight to the edge of the Bradford City penalty area where Scholes was waiting with his hammer of a right foot, which arrowed a volley into the Bradford net with scorching ferocity.

Ruud van Nistelrooy v Fulham, March 22, 2003

Given his reputation as a penalty-area predator, it is understandable that Fulham’s defenders might not have taken the threat of Van Nistelrooy running towards them from just inside his own half too seriously.

The Netherlands international had the last laugh, though, waltzing past a host of flat-footed Cottagers before tucking the ball past Maik Taylor with his customary composure.

Paul Scholes v Aston Villa, December 23, 2006

Mr. Devlin,

I asked for your email address so I can compliment Vicki Stanberry who helped my wife and me enormously in arranging transportation for guests from our hotel to our son’s wedding on a remote ranch west of Ft. Worth.

Vicki was nothing short of AWESOME! She not only held our hand thru the initial arrangements, but at the very last minute when my son announced over 25 unexpected guests, Vicki jumped thru hoops to find a second bus on a very busy Saturday night.

If Vicki had not gone the extra mile (marathon!) this would never have happened and these guests would not have made it to the ceremony. Also, the drivers were so courteous and prompt. The entire experience was flawless!

Thank you very much. Please use me as a happy Premier Transportation customer reference anytime.

All the best,


Rob Jones
