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 percent of the total votes cast.
