Jaap Stam is congratulated against Leicester in 1999.

Our XI of one-goal Reds

Wednesday 16 January 2019 11:33

We decided to compile a team of former Manchester United players who scored a single goal during their stay at Old Trafford.

On the day 20 years ago that Jaap Stam netted his only United strike - during the 6-2 thumping of Leicester City at Filbert Street in the Treble-winning campaign, we have opted for a 4-4-2 formation with plenty of options for the bench who just missed out. These include forwards Mame Biram Diouf and Laurie Cunningham.
