Video: Eric's 1-0 winners

A spate of 1-0 wins in the 1996 run-in had Eric Cantona's name written all over them...

1-0 vs West Ham, 22 January 1996
Eric appeared from nowhere at the far post to meet Ryan Giggs' cross, but still had plenty to do to find the net - the first of a run of 1-0 winners.

1-0 vs Newcastle, 4 March 1996
United had been battered by Newcastle as Peter Schmeichel turned in a stunning display. However, Eric grabbed the headlines with a clinical back-post volley.

1-0 vs Arsenal, 20 March 1996
An uncharacteristic communication breakdown was invitation enough for Cantona to punish the Gunners - and the finish was among his most spectacular. 

1-0 Tottenham, 24 March 1996
In a tense encounter, Cantona's close control and direct attack was bettered only by his brilliantly-disguised left-foot finish.

1-0 Coventry, 8 April 1996
It may only have been a tap-in, yet Cantona was on a run of five goals in five crucial games as United marched on inexorably toward the title.
