As the Manchester United juggernaut hurtles inexorably towards a record 20th Premier League title, there has been much discussion about how the Red Devils’ 2013 vintage compares with their famous treble-winning team.
In particular, the debate has centred on which of Sir Alex Ferguson’s impressive respective collection of forwards from each campaign can claim to be superior.
Of course, the partnership forged by Dwight Yorke and Andrew Cole during the glorious 1998/99 season is now the stuff of legend.
Ably assisted by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Teddy Sheringham, the duo terrorised defences both at home and abroad, firing 53 goals between them as United landed the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League crowns.
However, there is certainly a case to be made for the current striking quartet of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck being even more effective.
United have smashed a whopping 97 goals in all competitions this term, with the four front men contributing an impressive 57 strikes towards that total.
So how can we determine which strike combination had the better understanding – the Class of ’99 or the Class of 2013?
This is a question we here at bwin decided to settle once and for all by putting players from both vintages through a blindfold challenge.
Watch the video above to see Yorke and Cole put their famously instinctive relationship to the test against Rooney, Hernandez and Welbeck in our exclusive ‘Telepathic Football Challenge’.
