OCCASION: FA Charity Shield
SIGNIFICANCE: Having just stamped on Gus Poyet’s legs at the season’s curtain-raiser, the Man United skipper Roy Keane makes a lunge to extricate Roberto Di Matteo’s right eyeball – and, fittingly enough, sees red. Thus Keane goes down as the last player ever to get his marching orders at the old Wembley…
SCORERS: Hasselbaink 22, Melchiot 73
WHAT HAPPENED NEXT? With Gianluca Vialli’s Chelsea already one up through new £15million signing Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, Keano’s red mist proved suicidal. But when the kid gloves came off, the inspirational skipper led United to another Prem title.
Chelsea: De Goey, Leboeuf, Babayaro, Desailly, Melchiot, Wise, Poyet (Le Saux 77), Stanic, Di Matteo (Morris 71), Hasselbaink, Zola (Gudjohnsen 74).
Man United: Barthez, Neville, Irwin, Johnsen, Silvestre (Stam 20), Beckham, Giggs (Fortune 78), Keane, Scholes, Sheringham (Yorke 70), Solskjaer (Cole 70).
