Few goalkeepers have dominated the Premier League as Peter Schmeichel did with Manchester United in the 1990s.

He was one of the first to deal comfortably with the new backpass law.

Schmeichel’s long throws that launched United’s attacks were also an innovation in the competition.

But his spectacular saves, including his “star fish” jump, denied many strikers time and again and helped him to five titles as well, as Player of the Season award in 1995/96.
