50. Stuart Pearson
In 50th place is centre-forward Stuart Pearson, who scored 66 goals in 180 appearances for Manchester United in his five years at the club.
The technically-gifted Englishman was a popular player at Old Trafford, utilising his intelligent movement to get into excellent goal-scoring positions.
49. David Herd
David Herd may not have been selected by Matt Busby for the European Cup final in 1968, but he was a vastly-underrated player.
The Scotsman was born to find the back of the net, scoring almost 150 goals for the side in a seven-year stint.
48. Brian Kidd
Forget his current role at Manchester City, Brian Kidd is United through and through.
A seemingly-eternally fresh-faced youngster, the forward made more than 200 league appearances for the Red Devils, scoring 52 goals.
47. Eddie Colman
Eddie Colman was one of several United players taken too soon when he died in the Munich air disaster in 1958.
The prodigious wing-half was already a regular for Matt Busby's side as a teenager, marauding up and down the flanks with vigour.
46. Brian McClair
Brian McClair played for Aston Villa, Motherwell and Celtic, but it is for his 11 years at Manchester United that he is best remembered.
A prolific goal-scorer, McClair could find the back of the net from close range or distance, bagging 24 league goals in his first season to become the first United player to surpass 20 since George Best.
45. Paul Ince
The sour taste left in the mouth by Paul Ince's departure from United should not detract from his quality.
The Guv'nor was a central midfielder who brought an immense presence and physicality to the pitch.
44. Lou Macari
Diminutive Scotsman Lou Macari made the switch from forward to midfielder later in his career and United reaped the dividends.
He was an imaginative player, capable of leading an attack with creative poise.
43. Andy Cole
It is almost criminal that Andy Cole only ever won 15 caps for England.
He may not have delivered on the international stage, but he was a key member of the treble-winning side of 1998/99, scoring legendary goals against Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur that season.
42. Paul McGrath
It is a shame Paul McGrath was unable to prevent his demons from allowing him to become a true Old Trafford legend.
The Irish centre-back's later days at Aston Villa proved he still had plenty to give, well into his 30s.
41. Joe Spence
Joe Spence may have been the Red Devils' original heroic flying winger.
Between 1898 and 1919, the Englishman enthralled fans with his exceptional skill and speed. Sadly, no footage of him in action exists.
