It is one of the most memorable moments in Premier League history.
It was a scene that seemed to be replayed countless times... the clock ticking past the 90-minute mark with United, watched on by a wristwatch-glancing Sir Alex Ferguson, piling on the pressure against nervy opposition before scoring late on for a precious three points.
This ability to claim late wins under Ferguson spawned a phrase engrained in sporting folklore: Fergie Time.
But do the stats back up this idea of Man Utd's superiority when entering the final stages of a match? The answer may surprise you.
While Ferguson's side certainly had an impressive number of winners scored in the 90th minute or later during his Premier League reign, with 16, four clubs totalled more.
Between 1992/93 and 2012/13, Ferguson's final season at United, it was actually arch-rivals Liverpool who had the most with 24.
Arsenal were second with 19.
Incredibly, United would have to wait almost 10 years after that Bruce goal before scoring another winner in the 90th minute or later.
And in the 1990s, United scored as many 90th-minute winning goals in the Premier League as the likes of Ipswich Town, Nottingham Forest and Oldham Athletic.
