It sometimes feels like Yorke and his 1999 Manchester United treble strike partner Andy Cole are the forgotten men on these lists. Yorke has scored 29 in this historic season, one more than Cole, and won the Premier League Golden Boot. Yorke’s immediate impact following his departure from Aston Villa is often overlooked, and his influence over this trophy-laden season alone is enough to be included, including two against Inter Milan in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. 1999 champions, and the equalizer against Juventus in the return leg of the semi-final in Turin. This is why he is ahead of United forwards who followed him like Ruud van Nistelrooy and Robin van Persie. Many would argue that the Dutch were better players, but they didn’t have the same effect on United in terms of the number of trophies won.
