Rooney tops Premier League goal poll
Wayne Rooney's stunning overhead kick in the Manchester derby in February 2011 has been voted as the greatest goal in the 20 seasons of the Premier League in a ballot of more than 300,000 fans.
England striker Rooney acrobatically volleyed home Nani's 77th-minute cross to take United eight points clear of City in the league standings en route to a record 19th English league title.
Supporters from around the world voted in the ballot, with Rooney's effort gaining 26 per cent of the total votes cast.
Dennis Bergkamp's magnificent turn and finish against Newcastle for Arsenal in March 2002 was the second most popular with 19 per cent and Thierry Henry's volley for Arsenal against Manchester United in 2000 was third on 15 per cent.
