Video: Forest 8-1

Prompted by last weekend's incredible 8-2 win over Arsenal, all this week we're indulging ourselves by recalling the last eight Premier League games that United have won by six goals or more. 

On Tuesday we began with the 9-0 thumping of Ipswich in 1995; now we're jumping ahead four years to a Treble-season rout of Nottingham Forest.

In an 8-1 win at the City Ground on 6 February 1999, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer enjoyed one of his most famous games in the red shirt, coming off the bench to score four goals in a remarkable final 10 minutes.

Andrew Cole and Dwight Yorke also bagged a brace apiece as Ron Atkinson's side fell apart in the most recent meeting between the sides.

It remains United's – and the Premier League's – biggest ever away win and the Reds' joint-seventh largest margin of victory overall.
