On this day in 1994, Andrei Kanchelskis' one and only United hat-trick helped the Reds to a biggest-ever derby win at a chilly Old Trafford...
1-0 (24 mins): Eric Cantona races on to Kanchelskis' through-ball and emphatically lashes in United's opener with his left foot.
2-0 (42 mins): Cantona finds Kanchelskis in space on the right-hand side of the box and the flying winger's shot takes a handy deflection off Terry Phelan to leave keeper Simon Tracey helpless.
3-0 (47 mins): Kanchelskis is put through one-on-one just after the break and, though his initial shot is saved, he sidefoots in the rebound to put United out of sight.
4-0 (70 mins): Mark Hughes gets in on the act, nonchalantly poking home from seven yards with the outside of his right boot after trapping Roy Keane's cross.
5-0 (89 mins): The rout is complete. Cantona and Kanchelskis spring City's weak offside trap and the latter slots home at the second attempt to seal his treble.
