Video: Days to remember

There are two very good reasons to look back at events on 5 April in 1993 and 2003 as Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United turned on the style on both dates.

20 years ago today, the Reds were still aiming to end the 26-year wait for the league title and travelled to fellow contenders Norwich City at Carrow Road.

A devastating spell of football saw three goals scored inside eight minutes as the visitors took a commanding first-half lead to leave the Canaries shell-shocked. Ex-Red Mark Robins pulled one back but this was a signal of real intent that helped propel the club to the elusive championship.

Also, exactly a decade ago, Liverpool were swept aside 4-0 at Old Trafford - the biggest win over the Merseysiders in the past 60 years.

Sami Hyypia's early dismissal did not help the Anfield club's cause but United were ruthless with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wrapping things up late on. Ruud van Nistelrooy netted two penalties and, interestingly, Ryan Giggs scored in both matches featured in our exclusive MUTV video, which shows the Reds' goals in the games.
