Gerrard strike voted greatest Man Utd v Liverpool goal

We’ll leave you to argue over the result but according to our readers Steven Gerrard’s goal for Liverpool against Manchester United in 2001 is the best ever in a fixture between the two Premier League giants.

It was a pretty special effort and trademark Stevie G with the midfielder’s 30-yard thunderbolt giving United goalkeeper Fabian Barthez no chance.

It pulled in 53 per cent of the vote with Dimitar Berbatov’s spectacular bicycle kick in 2010 coming second with 27 per cent.

Yes, even a worldie overhead effort as part of a match-winning hat-trick couldn’t ensure the Bulgarian walked off with our award.

Further down the list, Eric Cantona’s iconic goal in the 1996 FA Cup final was a distant third on 15 per cent, edging out goals from Robbie Fowler and Patrick Berger.


Both sides face-off again this weekend in Saturday’s late kick-off but will we see a goal that’s worthy of making it into such illustrious company?

United striker Wayne Rooney has made us all stand up and applaud a few unbelievable strikes in the past while Reds forward Phillipe Coutinho is also capable of producing moments of magic.
