Review:
Often mentioned, never bettered, this match is remarkable in many ways. It is the highest away win in Premier League history and also notable for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scoring four goals in the last 10 minutes after coming on as a 72nd minute sub when they were already 4-1 up. Roy Keane was their captain, it was feezing cold and to make it worse, it even has its own Wikipedia page. Thanks.
