So close, but yet so far. That's Manchester United's 2011-12 season summed up.

The Old Trafford outfit were mere seconds away from a 20th league title when Sergio Aguero's late winner for City snatched the cup from their grasp.

In those few seconds, a season of ups and downs and emotional roller coasters was perfectly summed. It was the denouement of a long, drawn-out dance that saw United, at one stage, go as far as eight points ahead in the title race—with a lead in goal differential—only to be pegged back before losing on goal differential.

Manchester United's total points tally of 89 was the highest ever amassed by a runner-up. Despite that, the specter of a trophy-less campaign will haunt fans and players alike for the weeks and months to come.

Nevertheless, this season has been full of great team and individual performances. Here's a look at United's best performers of the 2011-12 season.
