On the 20th of October 1996, Newcastle United inflicted a painful 5-0 defeat to Manchester United with the highlight of the goal coming from Belgian defender Philippe Albert who scored a delightful chip from outside the box with seven minutes remaining to cap off a glorious night for the Geordies.


Darren Peacock scored the opening goal from a David Ginola corner before the Frenchman scored a thunderbolt from the edge of the area before half time. Premier League‘s record goalscorer Alan Shearer crossed for Les Ferdinand to head home the third before Shearer got in on the act and scored the 4th. The best goal of the night though was scored by a centre-back who chipped Peter Schmeichel from more than 20 yards.
