On this day 10 years ago, United bounced back from a surprise home defeat to Middlesbrough to win a cracker at Leeds 4-3.

In the noon kick-off at Elland Road both sides traded early goals - Paul Scholes for United, Mark Viduka for Leeds - before the Reds pulled away and made it 4-1 just after half-time thanks to a quickfire Ole Gunnar Solskjaer double and a cool Ryan Giggs finish.

But Sir Alex's men had to withstand a late fightback from the hosts before finally securing the three points after a seven-goal thriller.

Unfortunately, United had to settle for third place at the end of the season, behind Arsenal and Liverpool. But days like this one are certainly well worth recalling.
