20 years ago to the day yesterday, Manchester United visited Selhurst Park to play Crystal Palace. The 48th minute saw Eric Cantona, Manchester United's prolific striker, kick out against Shaw, only for the linesman to see the whole thing and ultimately help have Cantona sent off. Cantona was then angered by the taunting of the Palace fans, leaping into the stands to kick one with his boot. Cantona was banned from the sport for 8 months, which ultimately helped Blackburn Rovers secure the title on the last day of the season.
