Gimme 5: French fancy

Gabriel Obertan became the latest Frenchman to find the net for United when he scored against Bursaspor. Hence our video feature, recalling five others:

Patrice Evra - Pull your finger out Pat, we'd love you to build on your tally of two. Another one like United's seventh strike against Roma would do nicely.

Laurent Blanc - The World Cup winner picked a good day to open his account; his header was one of five second-half goals as the Reds surged back from 0-3 to 5-3 at Spurs.

Louis Saha - Our pick of the Parisien's efforts was the only goal of a difficult game in Portugal; a beauty against Benfica in 2006/07.

Mikael Silvestre - The defender did well in reaching double figures for United; contributions included a close-range header against Leeds at Old Trafford.

Eric Cantona - Our top-scoring Frenchman notched 82 - few were better than the screamer past Seaman in a setpiece situation.
