Peter Schmeichel - Newcastle United 0-1 Manchester United

John Barnes was hardly renowned for scoring headers, but the former Liverpool star displayed a natural aptitude for doing so when he connected expertly with a cross from Newcastle full-back Stuart Pearce.

Schmeichel flung himself spectacularly to his left and miraculously threw out a glove to deny Barnes and help secure a vital win for Manchester United.
