In this week's Gimme 5, we relive Wayne Rooney's sensational winner in the Manchester derby and track down four other memorable overhead goals...

Sir Alex on Wayne's winner:

“We’ve seen some excellent goals at Old Trafford, but in terms of execution you’ll never see any better. I have to say it reminded me of Denis Law, but whether or not Denis hit them in with such ferocity I’m not so sure. I haven’t seen anything like it before, that’s for sure. It was absolutely stunning. Unbelievable.”

Gimme 5: Overhead kicks

These five acrobatic strikes, including's Wayne wonder-goal against City, are well worth another look in this week's Gimme 5 video...

Paul Ince v QPR (18 January 1993) The Guvnor showed tremendous agility and improvisation at Loftus Road in 1993 to net after Lee Sharpe's shot looped up towards him.

Andy Cole v Watford (16 October 1999) Dwight Yorke had already bagged a fine overhead kick, but his strike partner Cole went one better with this acrobatic effort.

Andy Cole v Leicester (6 November 1999) Three weeks after the wonderful strike against Watford, Coley was at it again, this time with a marvellous 18-yard effort.

Dimitar Berbatov v Liverpool (19 September 2010) Berba lived out every schoolboy's dream by netting this incredible goal just before the hour mark, in front of the Stretford End.

Wayne Rooney v Manchester City (12 February 2011) Who are we to disagree with Sir Alex's assertion that this is one of the greatest goals ever scored at Old Trafford?
