The 1996–97 season marked Manchester United's fifth in the Premier League and their 22nd consecutive season in the top tier of English football. They secured the Premier League title with 75 points, finishing seven points ahead of their closest competitors. In the European Cup, they reached the semi-finals but were eliminated by Borussia Dortmund. Their FA Cup campaign ended in the Fourth Round replay, while they were knocked out of the League Cup by Leicester City. New signing Ole Gunnar Solskjær emerged as a standout performer, finishing as the club's top scorer with 19 goals. David Beckham, at 22, won the PFA Young Player of the Year award and earned his first England cap. However, signings like Karel Poborský and Jordi Cruyff failed to make significant impacts. The season saw the departure of winger Lee Sharpe and captain Steve Bruce, while Eric Cantona announced his retirement, leading to the signing of Teddy Sheringham as his replacement.
