Three goals in six electric minutes lit up the Lane in this fine victory against Manchester United back in April, 2016.
We hadn't beaten United for 14 games stretching back to 2001 before this fixture, but that would all change in spectacular style.
We were always in control but it took until the 70th minute to find the breakthrough.
Dele did the trick and sparked six minutes of magic against Louis van Gaal's team. Toby Alderweireld quickly followed up with the second goal and Erik Lamela capped a day to remember with the third. We went on to finish third in the Premier League to take our place back in the Champions League.
