London:

Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's spectacular overhead kick against Manchester City has been voted the greatest goal in the history of the English Premier League.

Rooney's sensational strike, which sealed a 2-1 derby victory for United at Old Trafford in February 2011, was on a shortlist of 10 goals in a poll organized by the Premier League to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Other goals on the shortlist were David Beckham's effort from the halfway line for United against Wimbledon in 1996 and Thierry Henry's flick and volley for Arsenal against United in 2000.

Votes were cast by members of the public.
