Published Add your comment

1. Gary Pallister and Steve Bruce

These two are arguably Manchester United's greatest defensive partnership in their history.

Steve Bruce, often regarded as the best defender never to play for England, would form a memorable partnership with Gary Pallister.

And they would be hugely influential in United's early Premier League success, winning three of the first four Premier League titles.

Bruce captained United to a famous double in the 1993/94 season. 

Together, they won three league titles and three FA Cups.

Bruce - a traditional, old fashioned defender - linking up with the quicker Pallister to form the perfect defensive combination.
