Seven last-gasp winners: Arsenal and Manchester United feature

Andres Iniesta Spain

This weekend, Tottenham and Crystal Palace enjoyed last-gasp winners against Sunderland and Burnley respectively.

Top Corner remembers other occasions where teams have dramatically won in the last moments of a game.

Wayne Bridge vs Arsenal

2004 was the year of the Invincibles but it could have been even better for Arsenal. Only days after losing to Manchester United in an FA Cup semi-final, the Gunners hosted London rivals Chelsea in a Champions League second leg quarter-final. With the tie heading to extra-time, Wayne Bridge of all people popped up with the winner with 87 minutes played.

Ahn Jung-Hwan vs Italy

Jung-Hwan's Golden Goal in the last 16 of the 2002 World Cup against Italy three minutes before what would have been a penalty shoot-out was every bit as dramatic as it was controversial. The Italians had taken the lead through Christian Vieri and were in front right up to the 88th minute before Seol Ki-Hyeon equalised. Among other questionable decisions, Damiano Tommasi had a perfectly good goal chalked off - a goal which would have been 'Golden' itself. Relive the drama...

Andres Iniesta vs Holland

Two years after bringing decades of underachieving to an end with European Championship glory, Spain got their hands on the big one in South Africa in 2010 as Andres Iniesta's winner with four minutes left in extra-time won the World Cup for Vicente del Bosque's men.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær vs Bayern Munich

Manchester United were 1-0 down in what was the last leg of their historic treble in 1999. With the 90 minutes up, queue Teddy Sheringham and match-winner Solskjær. Spare a thought for the late George Best - the Manchester United legend decided to leave with the score at 1-0 and was going down in a lift on his way out of the Nou Camp when Sheringham equalised and yep, he was on his way back up when the baby-faced assassin poked in the winner!

Sergio Agüero vs Queens Park Rangers

Manchester United thought they had wrapped up yet another Premier League title after beating Sunderland 1-0 at the Stadium of Light on the last day of the season as neighbours City were struggling against relegation-threatened QPR. As the full-time whistle blew on Wearside, Edin Dzeko made it 2-2 before Agüero got the all-important third. While this goal has been played over and over again in the since that famous afternoon in May 2012, we thought we'd show you how Soccer Saturday pundit Paul Merson reacted...

Mickey Thomas vs Liverpool

23 years before Sergio Agüero and Manchester City won the league with effectively the last kick of the season, Mickey Thomas and Arsenal did the very same thing at Anfield against title rivals Liverpool. To be crowned champions, the Gunners had to win by two clear goals and after Alan Smith gave the North Londoners the lead early in the second half, Thomas waited right until the death to get the title-clinching second.

Four years later in 1993, Arsenal would win the FA Cup in almost as dramatic fashion as Andy Linighan headed in the winner in a final replay against Sheffield Wednesday in the last minute of extra-time at Wembley.

Jimmy Glass vs Plymouth Argyle

Only a win for Carlisle United against Plymouth Argyle on the last day of the 1998-99 season would keep the Cumbrians in the Football League. With the score at 1-1, goalkeeper Jimmy Glass came up for a corner and scored a last-minute winner. Then all hell broke loose!
