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.
