Ireland’s John O’Shea takes the top spot as Manchester United name their top ten Premier League injury time winners…
An extraordinary effort from Nemanja Matic saw Manchester United snatching three points from Selhurst Park on Monday evening. Having gone 2-0 down, it was a comeback win that was reminiscent of the Fergie era for United and the Red Devils will certainly be hoping to carry that momentum into a massive clash with Liverpool this weekend.
United was once a club that was known for its unparalleled ability to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. However, since Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure, late moments of magic have become somewhat of a rarity with United mostly struggling to claw their way back into contests having gone behind.
In recent weeks however, some of the magic of old has returned with United taking three points from clashes against Chelsea and Crystal Palace having initially conceded the first goal.
At Selhurst Park, something truly special occurred with Nemanja Matic scoring a freakish effort to hand United the victory in the 91st minute. Such was the timing and nature of the wonder strike that United’s recently launched YouTube channel decided it was the opportune moment to release a montage of their top ten famous injury-time comebacks.
There are some truly unforgettable moments as the list counts down. However, it is one of Ireland’s very own that takes the top prize. Check out the video in full here.
