Paul Garcia Manchester United FC

Over the last six weeks, we’ve been asking you to choose which classic Manchester United matches you want to relive in full.

With three games streamed each week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays – there’s been plenty of opportunity to look back on some cherished Red memories.
