Man Utd: Video of all Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez's goals in 2007/08

Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo - two of Man Utd's greatest ever players

Most people will reference the 1998/99 season as the crowning achievement of Sir Alex Ferguson's reign as Manchester United manager.

It's hard to look past that memorable campaign, which saw the Red Devils become the first - and still only - English side to win the treble.

But one season which comes mighty close to 98/99 is 2007/08, the year Fergie scooped his second Champions League trophy.

United also pipped Chelsea to the Premier League title by just two points, scoring 80 goals and conceding only 22 from their 38 games.

It was a team littered with legends that could do it all. But the catalyst for that memorable campaign was undoubtedly United's electric attacking trident of Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez.

To this day, it remains one of the finest striking trios assembled in the history of English football. Below, you can watch all 79 goals from the striking threesome and we'll run you through some of their mind-boggling stats after.


Stats in all competitions:

Ronaldo - 42 goals, 9 assists

Rooney - 18 goals, 14 assists

Tevez - 19 goals, 7 assists

Tevez, Rooney & Ronaldo

They really were something special.

Those 79 goals contributed to 72% of United's scored that season, with 57 of them coming in the Premier League alone - more than 14 of the other 19 teams in the division in 2007/08.

Ronaldo in particular was simply outrageous. His 31 in the Premier League is the most ever scored by a United player in a single 38-game season.

The man was averaging a goal or an assist every 83.1 minutes for goodness sake!

Ronaldo & Rooney celebrate

Ronaldo, Rooney and Tevez also scored all but one goal in the Champions League knockout phase that year, with the former scoring the opener in the final against Chelsea.

To sum up just how vital the trio's goals were in 2007/08, United's fourth top goal scorer that season was Anderson - with five...

They accepted the burden and distributed the goals and assists amongst themselves perfectly, an iconic attacking unit.
