Manchester City Manchester United Paul Scholes goalPaul Scholes’ last-gasp goal stunned Manchester City as Manchester United caused their neighbours more injury-time heartbreak at Eastlands.

After Michael Owen’s winner in the sixth-minute of stoppage time at Old Trafford in September, there were just 20 seconds of the three additional minutes left this time around as Scholes rose unchallenged to head home Patrice Evra’s left-wing cross from ten yards.

It was an amazing finish to a game that seemed destined to end goalless.

For Scholes, who signed a one-year contract extension on Friday, it was his 149th Red Devils’ goal and the perfect way to retain the outside title hopes United still cherish.

After the game, Man Utd defender, Gary Neville, said: “We passed them to death all day. I hope the result puts Chelsea in a negative frame of mind.”

His comments were echoed by manager Sir Alex Ferguson, who said: “We deserved to win, no question, but I couldn’t see a goal coming.”
