MANCHESTER UNITED 4
(Scholes 8, Solskjaer 37,39; Giggs 55)
Elland Road, Sat 30 March 2002
United: Barthez; G.Neville, Blanc, Johnsen, Silvestre; Beckham, Keane, Butt, Giggs (Forlan 74); Scholes, Solskjaer (P.Neville 86)
Subs not used: Carroll, Irwin, van Nistelrooy.
In the noon kick-off at Elland Road both sides traded early goals - Paul Scholes for United, Mark Viduka for Leeds - before the Reds pulled away and made it 4-1 just after half-time thanks to a quickfire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer double and a cool Ryan Giggs finish.
But Sir Alex's men had to withstand a late fightback from the hosts before finally securing the three points after a seven-goal thriller.
Unfortunately, United had to settle for third place at the end of the season, behind Arsenal and Liverpool. But days like this one are certainly well worth recalling.
