VIDEO: FIRST-MINUTE GOALS's countdown to Christmas kicks off on 1st December with a free video of United goals scored in the 1st minute of matches.

On 1 December 2004, French forward David Bellion scored the winner in the League Cup victory over Arsenal at Old Trafford with only 19 seconds on the clock. A mistake by Johan Djourou gifted the ball to the former Sunderland striker and his shot found a way past Manuel Almunia for the only goal of the game.

Other strikes to make their way into the exclusive video compliation include a couple from Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs' record-breaking 15-second effort against Southampton and, of course, Javier Hernandez's quickfire opener in last season's crucial victory against Chelsea en route to the 19th title.
