Liverpool 3 – United 3 (4th January, 1994)
One of the greatest comebacks ever in the Premier League history was completed by Liverpool just 11 minutes from time. United took a 3 goal lead inside 24 minutes of the match. Steve Bruce, a young Ryan Giggs and Denis Irwin were on the score sheet before the half an hour mark.
The shell shocked were in for a treat though. Liverpool equalized just 1 minute later from a Nigel Clough screamer. At the 38th minute mark Clough scored another one and it was game on. The comeback was completed at 79th minute when Neil Ruddock scored a memorable header.
