For me the greatest goal scored at Old Ttrafford was by Dennis, his great back-heel for Manchester City v M anchester Utd in last game of the 1973–74 season .
After a great run by Franny Lee who took out three players, he then slipped the ball back to Law who promptly back-heeled the ball into the back of the net.Law's lack of celebration was because his goal had relegated United, however they would have been relegated even if the match had been drawn.
Do you think this is the The Greatest Goal scored at Old Trafford?
