F. David Beckham, West Ham 3 United 5, League, Upton Park, 16.03.02
Scholes sweeps threads through a delightful ball from United’s half. It’s inch perfect, straight into Becks’ path, and the right winger doesn’t have to break stride as he chips the bouncing ball beautifully over David James into the far corner.

G. Ruud Van Nistelrooy, United 3 Fulham 0, League, Old Trafford, 22.03.03
Collecting a pass in his own half, Ruud turns away from Sylvain Legwinski and sets off with purpose towards goal. Four players attempt to stop him but the RVN juggernaut roars on regardless. He takes a touch and sidefoots it past Maik Taylor.

H. David Beckham, Everton 1 United 2, League, Goodison Park, 11.05.03
Becks lines up a freekick towards the right corner of the penalty area. Surely not shooting territory? Wrong - in his last game for the Reds, Beckham sweeps the ball from right to left, leaving Richard Wright rooted to the spot.

I. Wayne Rooney, United 3 Middlesbrough 0, FA Cup, Old Trafford, 29.01.05
Wazza meets Louis Saha’s header with the outside of his right foot, bending a volley into the top corner. An outstanding strike, voted Goal of the Season 04/05.

J. Wayne Rooney, United 2 Newcastle 1, League, Old Trafford, 24.04.05
A defender's header drops into the path of Rooney, who wallops the ball first time with every ounce of strength he has. The shot bends and dips before crashing in off the bar.
