That same opposition were vanquished in the FA Cup semi-final in a game that saw Ryan Giggs show everyone his talent. United would go on to see off Newcastle in the final.
On top of it all, they conquered in the Camp Nou in the most dramatic fashion and are the only English team to ever win this particular treble.
Liverpool completed a treble of their own, though it was a bit different, in 2001.

Truly, a golden end to a silver season.
The Invincibles. Arsenal had no equal in the Premier League in 2003/04, winning the league by 11 points and dropping just 24 en route to the championship.
Most famously, they went unbeaten. The only team in modern times in English football to win the title without losing a single match.
Their undefeated season was part of an overall 49-game run in which nobody could lay a glove on Arsène Wenger’s men, who not only got results but did it in style too.
They were awarded a golden replica of the Premier League trophy as a reward.
