Newcastle United 5 – 0 Manchester United


It’s worth noting that the previous time Uniteds Newcastle and Manchester met, it was the Charity Shield in August 1996, two months prior to this. The black and whites were red all over, as Manchester United splattered Newcastle 4-0. So hopes weren’t high for this. They needn’t have worried and by the end, the Geordies were queueing up to score. The icing on the cake was undoubtedly Philippe Albert chipping Peter Schmeichel from outside the penalty area for the Toon’s fifth. An absolute work of art.
