On This Day: Paolo Di Canio magic mesmerises Manchester United


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

West Ham United relied on a little bit of Paolo Di Canio magic to overcome Manchester United 1-0 on this day in 2001.

The extraordinary Italian beat the offside trap masterfully, before prodding past a protesting Fabien Barthez to send the Hammers into the fifth round.

The victory was West Ham United's first at Old Trafford since 1986, in a game that certainly lives long in the memory of the Claret and Blue faithful.

Harry Redknapp's side ultimately bowed out of the competition in the quarter-finals, but few will forget Di Canio's brilliance at the Theatre of Dreams.
