Manchester United’s final Premier League game of the 2017/18 season, against Watford on Sunday, will take the Reds to a significant milestone. 

The visit of the Hornets to Old Trafford will be the Reds’ 1,000th game in the competition, since its inception in 1992/93. We have won 628, drawn 215 and lost 156 of the previous 999. 

To commemorate the landmark, the club is running a special series of polls, asking fans to vote for their favourite United moments and players from the last 26 years of Premier League action. 

There are five categories that we want you to have your say on: Best Goal, Best Game, Best Save, Best Player and finally, the Greatest XI, enabling you to pick an ultimate line-up from the entire era.

By voting, you’ll be rewarded with free entry into a draw to win some amazing prizes, including the signed match ball from the 1,000th game and a signed match-worn shirt!


In this, the first of our daily dedicated articles, we focus on the voting for United’s best goal of the Premier League era. 

The Reds have found the net more than 1,900 times in the competition but, after much deliberation, we have managed to put together a shortlist of our top 10 outstanding goals. Which one is the best for you? 

Here are the nominees… 

Wayne Rooney (v Manchester City H – 2010/11)
