Manchester United Gets On Top With Win vs Bolton

Dimitar Berbatov's late goal sent champions Manchester United to the top of the Premier League table for the first time this season. Berbatov headed home from close range after a fine cross from Carlos Tevez on the right in the 90th minute just as the game was heading towards a draw. For the preceding 89 minutes United had been warded off by Jussi Jaaskelainen. The Bolton keeper saved superbly from two Cristiano Ronaldo free-kicks and also a header from the United winger. United's win saw them equal Chelsea's record, set in 2004-05, of 10 consecutive clean sheets in the Premier League, as they bid for a third consecutive title.

Below is the picture and the video of the winning goal.

I saw this game live and that winning goal was amazing. I love this picture because it captures that memorable moment and the image has so much suspense because you don't know if it's going to go in or not.
