4. Ruud Van Nistelrooy

Games v Newcastle: 10 – Goals: 11 – Assists: 2

Another man at Old Trafford who terrorised Newcastle throughout his career, Van Nisterooy has scored more goals against the Magpies than any other club during his career.

With a ratio of just over a goal per game, the Dutch hitman was lethal whenever faced up against the black and white stripes, and only failed to score in two games in which he played versus the north east side.

His personal highlight against Newcastle would have to be his hat trick scored in the thrilling 5-3 encounter played in the north west back in 2002, while he also broke the Toon Army’s hearts with a brace in the semi final stage of the FA Cup, Manchester United picking up a 4-1 win.
