But what goal will you plump for?
It was a bumper season for net-busting, as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Reds recorded our most prolific campaign since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement in 2013.
We hit a whopping 112 goals – just two behind the tally reached in Sir Alex's farewell season – while two Reds, Anthony Martial (23) and Marcus Rashford (22), surpassed 20 for the first time since 2010/11. There was also the emergence of Mason Greenwood, who hit 17 goals in a breakthrough 12 months. No United teenager has ever scored more in a season than the Bradford-born prodigy.
But despite a glut of great strikes, we've had to whittle it down to a shortlist of 10. Have a read through our selections below, and don't forget to register your vote now!

Watch United's 10 Goal-of-the-Season contenders

Eight Reds are up for our Goal-of-the-Season award, but who will you vote for? Watch the nominees before deciding...

Daniel James v Southampton (away, Premier League)
The Welshman's third goal in his debut month with the Reds was the best of the lot. Receiving the ball from Scott McTominay, he cut in from the left and rifled an unstoppable, rising drive into the roof of the Saints' net.
Scott McTominay v Arsenal (home, Premier League)
When the ball fell to Scott on the edge of the Arsenal box in this rain-soaked Monday night encounter at Old Trafford, it looked like our goalscoring opportunity had gone. We'd just launched a blistering counterattack, but Daniel James's cross just evaded Marcus Rashford's far-post run. However, when the ball was played back to Scott, he snapped an effortless shot high into the Scoreboard End goal, leaving Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno a helpless, motionless bystander. 
Marcus Rashford v Chelsea (away, Carabao Cup)
Well, what is there to say? If you don't remember this one, stop what you're doing now and look it up on our app or YouTube channel immediately. With Frank Lampard and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's teams locked at 1-1 in this Carabao Cup tie, United received a free-kick some 35 yards from goal. What followed would have made Cristiano Ronaldo or any great free-kick taker proud: a swerving, thunderous shot that bobbed and weaved away from Willy Caballero and smacked mercilessly into the top corner. Masterful, and worthy of winning this award in any season.
Maguire v Tranmere (away, FA Cup)
If you're going to open your United account, better do it properly. Not many centre-halves can saunter forward on a mud bath and smash one into the top corner from 20 yards out. Ours can. Take a bow, Harry Maguire.

Anthony Martial v Watford (home, Premier League)
No other player can better Anthony's tally of three nominations, and his first is arguably his best. Racing onto a Bruno Fernandes through ball, the chance appeared to have slipped away when Ben Foster and numerous Hornets defenders converged on the Frenchman. A bit of a fancy footwork made Martial a yard. A second later, the ball was lying in the Stretford End goalmouth – his impudent audacious chip catching everyone by surprise. A delightful piece of thinking and execution.
Anthony Martial v Manchester City (home, Premier League)
Quick-thinking was also behind Martial's next effort on our shortlist, but this time the ingenuity sprang wholesale from Bruno Fernandes. A sharply-taken free-kick caught Manchester City napping, and when the Portuguese's scooped ball over the Blues' backline fell to Martial, he made a crisp connection with his volley. One-nil United, and Solskjaer's men were on the way to a third derby success of 2019/20.

Odion Ighalo v LASK (away, Europa League)
The first behind-closed-doors goal in competitive United history was always going to be memorable, but Odion Ighalo ensured that it was for all the right reasons. Found by Bruno Fernandes, the Nigerian's nimble ball-juggling act on the edge of the LASK area presented him with a shooting opportunity, and the left-footed blast that followed crashed in off the bar with cinematic grandeur. Even in the 'empty' stadium, you could hear the admiration of the backroom staff and management erupting from the dugout.
Anthony Martial (3) v Sheffield United (home, Premier League)
A goal that completed Martial's first United hat-trick, and did so in style. While the finish displayed Anto at his ice-cool best, this was all about the build-up. Glorious work by Paul Pogba and a visionary flick from Bruno Fernandes created the space, and when Marcus Rashford slid the ball through to Martial, there was only one outcome.

Opinion: Competition for award a good sign


United fan Sam Carney explains why the absence of a clear frontrunner for Player of the Year is a positive.

Bruno Fernandes v Brighton (away, Premier League)
Another great team move – this time finished off by a man who has catalysed so many great team moves since his arrival from Sporting Lisbon in January. There were so many great bits to this goal: Nemanja Matic's volleyed pass, Mason Greenwood's precise chip to find Bruno at the back post and, of course, our no.18's climactic Cantona-at-Newcastle-style finish. Put them all together and you have a counterattacking United classic in the club's best traditions.
Mason Greenwood (2) v Bournemouth (home, Premier League)
Yet more proof that it's almost impossible to tell which foot is Mason Greenwood's strongest. Running away from goal, with the angle narrowing, the 18-year-old notched his second of this game against Bournemouth with an effortless right-footed bullet across goal and into the top corner. He makes so many of his finishes look laughably easy, but study this one and every viewing reveals just what a unique talent Greenwood is.
