Manchester United have revealed the club’s all-time Premier League XI, according to the supporters.
The final line-up was on Tuesday afternoon as part of a series of polls to commemorate Man United’s 1000th Premier League win, a 1-0 triumph in the final game of the 2017-18 season against Watford at Old Trafford.
As part of the series of polls, Cristiano Ronaldo was named best player and Wayne Rooney‘s overhead kick against Manchester City was unsurprisingly voted as best goal.
Also, United’s 4-3 win over City in 2009 edged the 8-2 mauling of Arsenal for best match and David de Gea‘s unbelievably acrobatic stop to deny Juan Mata‘s free-kick during his Chelsea days was named best save.
Three of the men just mentioned made the final team – here it is:
De Gea beat United great Peter Schmeichel to the no. 1 shirt and the back four consists of Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand, Nemanja Vidic and Patrice Evra – a back line which enjoyed so much success together under Sir Alex Ferguson.
There is a world-class centre-midfield partnership on show with Roy Keane and Paul Scholes, and Ronaldo and Ryan Giggs as the wingers isn’t too bad at all either – the latter narrowly missed out on the best player vote which ‘CR7’ won.
An iconic strike force – Eric Cantona and Wayne Rooney – tops off the incredibly strong team and makes you wonder how much damage the two would inflict if they once did properly play together at United.
