There were 31 goals in 10 Premier League matches, this week.
Manchester City came from a goal behind to beat Burnley 2-1. Chelsea won by the same scoreline and same manner against their bitter London rival Tottenham. Liverpool were patient enough to beat Sunderland 2-0 after taking 75 minutes to break the deadlock. Arsenal beat Bournemouth 3-1 while Manchester United drew at home again. This time the opposition was West Ham. But the real crazy match was between Swansea and Crystal Palace. The scoreline was 5-4 in favour of the Wales side.
There were lots of amazing goals this week and it’s very difficult to omit some of them. Let’s look at the top 5 Premier League goals of this week.
5) Gylfi Sigurdsson vs Crystal Palace
When there are nine goals, you would probably expect all kinds of goals, tap in, own goal, individual goal, screamer. Almost all happened in this crazy match. But the best one came from Gylfi Sigurdsson. From a free-kick outside the penalty box, he curled a stunner into the top corner over the wall. That was magnificent. The goalkeeper was stranded and could not do anything.
4) Divoc Origi vs Sunderland
Sunderland tried to frustrate Liverpool by making jungle of boots inside their defensive third. At that time, Liverpool tried to break the deadlock by hook or by crook, no matter how or from whom. Divoc Origi took the opportunity beautifully. He came in from the bench in place of injured Philippe Coutinho. The Belgian went to the left side of the penalty box and curled the ball in the far corner. It was debatable whether it was intended as a cross or a goal. But, no matter what, it was a beautiful goal.
3) Dean Marney vs Manchester City
Burnley took a surprise lead over Premier League title contenders Manchester City. And it was a beauty from Dean Marney. The ball fell to him and he took a brilliant shot from a long range out and it went into the goal. But the end was not good for either him or his team. He was out injured inside the first half and his team surrendered that lead and eventually lost 2-1.
2) Christian Eriksen vs Chelsea
These two goals can really swap position. Both are awesome goals. It’s hard to decide which one was better. Christian Eriksen was criticized this season for not enough goals. He stopped his critics by a wonderful goal. From way outside the box, his left footed curler swerved so much that the Chelsea goalkeeper had no chance. Eventually, it was the first goal Chelsea conceded after 600 minutes. Without doubt, it was a goal worthy of breaking that streak.
1) Pedro vs Tottenham
Inside the first half, Chelsea equalised on that same match. It was probably the best goal of this Premier League weekend. Pedro cut inside and took a fierce shot towards the far corner which was capable of beating any goalkeeper. It was hard to describe. You should enjoy and applause it, unless you are a Tottenham fan.
