Tony Yeboah playing for Leeds United v Manchester United. Elland Road, Leeds, December 1995.

There’s only ever been one Premier League match played on Christmas Eve, and it was a particularly sweet one for Leeds United fans – a 3-1 home victory over rivals Manchester United back in 1995. 

Howard Wilkinson’s Leeds would end up finishing a disappointing 13th in the 1995-96 season, but they had a Christmas to remember with a solid victory over the eventual champions.

We’re asking you to name the starting line-up on that occasion for Leeds. To jog your memory, Wilkinson’s men went ahead in the sixth minute through a penalty, only to be pegged back by Andy Cole, before their two strikers settled the result.

If you’re after another quiz after trying this one, have a go at naming every player that featured in Leeds’ run to the Champions League semi-finals in 2000-01?
