It was a goal fit to grace, and indeed wi any game - even one of this magnitude.

Although Manchester City are well out of the Premier League title race, their game against runaway leaders Manchester United at Old Trafford was still significant for both sides given their fierce rivalry.

James Milner opened the scoring for the visitors thanks to a combination of an errant back-heel from Ryan Giggs and a fortunate deflection, before Vincent Kompany's own goal soon after levelled things up.

That set the game up nicely, and when the decisive moment came it was a thing of beauty.

Sergio Aguero, on his way back from injury and not fit enough to play the full 90 minutes, emerged from the bench and turned the game on its head.

Picking the ball up in Manchester United's half, the diminutive Argentinian slalomed his way through into the area leaving a trail of red shirts in his wake, before slamming the ball into the roof of the net.

A genuinely brilliant goal for sure - but talk this morning has quickly turned to whether it was better than another iconic strike from a Manchester United legend.

George Best scored a remarkably similar, superb solo effort against Sheffield United in 1971. the legendary number seven embarked on a mazy run, showing a brilliant turn of pace before tucking the ball in the far corner.

So the question is a simple one - which goal is better? Both are undeniably brilliant but do you think one just shades the other?

All you have to do is watch the two videos and leave your comment below! Remember, keep it friendly….
