United finished fourth in the First Division behind champions Arsenal, Liverpool and Crystal Palace.

On April 13, 1991, though, a game to be remembered played out at Elland Road against the Reds.

The Whites lost 5-4 to Liverpool in what was a thriller in West Yorkshire.

The visitors raced into a four goal lead after 28 minutes and Wilkinson's men looked beaten already as the half-time whistle sounded.

Lee Chapman had other ideas has he bagged a second half ha-trick along with Carl Shutt finding the back of the net.

A second John Barnes goal, though, was enough to see off Leeds who put the visitors under late pressure as they fought for a point.

Take a look back at some of the pictures from a memorable clash between Leeds and Liverpool alongside photos from the 1990/91 season below:
