MANCHESTER UNITED 5
(Giggs 6, Hughes 40, Cantona 64pen, Sharpe 78, Irwin 83)
COVENTRY CITY 0
United: Schmeichel; Parker, Bruce (Phelan 59), Pallister, Irwin; Sharpe, Ince, McClair, Giggs (Kanchelskis 79); Cantona, Hughes.
En route to ending a 26-year wait for the title, Coventry were crushed 5-0 on 28 December with Eric Cantona and Ryan Giggs ripping the Sky Blues' defence to shreds.
Giggs' hanging left-footed shot went in off a post to open the floodgates with Mark Hughes pouncing on a Cantona pass to double the lead. Cantona got in on the act himself with a typically cool penalty before heading a Brian McClair cross into the path of Lee Sharpe, whose volley bounced past visiting keeper Jonathan Gould.
Hughes teed up Denis Irwin for a deflected fifth in a classic demonstration of United in the most rampant of moods.
