The Premier League of last week saw some see saw battle and some of real thumping along with one eyebrow raising result. A total of 32 goals were scored across the country and some of them were outrageous.
Alexis scored his first league goal of the season
Leaders Man City consolidated their place at the top as they beat Burnley 3-0. Chelsea came back at home to win over Watford while Tottenham dismantled a lackluster Liverpool at Wembley. Manchester United suffered a shocking loss as Jose Mourinho’s men fell short against newly promoted Huddersfield Town. Arsenal were on high fives as Wenger’s men exposed Everton at Merseyside, a 5-2 win for the Gunners was enough for Everton manager Ronald Koeman to loose his job.

Among the 32 goals scored, some of the goals were top drawer stuff and today we will rank the top five goals in the last game week.
5. Andrew Surman ( Bournemouth) vs Stoke
It was a goal that helped Bournemouth to get a huge away win at Stoke. The ball was laid to him by Stanislas but the 31 year old had to keep it on target from a long way. He drilled the ball accurately and the outstretched Potters keeper couldn’t save it.
4. Wayne Rooney (Everton) vs Arsenal
Wayne Rooney extended his goal scoring tally against Arsenal as he opened the scoring at Goodison. He gave Toffees the lead from a long range stunner that ended up in the top corner to Cech’s right. Though it was a great moment for the former United striker, Everton went on to loose the game 2-5 against the Gunners.
3. Pedro (Chelsea) vs Watford
Pedro netted the opener at Stamford Bridge with a spectacular long ranger. Eden Hazard passed him from the right wing and the Spaniard had a go with his right foot and the ball went in from the inside of the post to give the Blues a lead. The Champions won the game 4-2 against the Hornets.
2. Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) vs Everton
Sanchez scored the 5th of the Arsenal rout at Goodison in the stoppage time. The Chilean was fed by Ramsey and he made a inside cut and went past two of the Everton players with ease, then took a shot from the acutest of angles to beat Jordan Pickford. There were five Everton shirts when he took the shot but none could prevent the ball going in the back of the net.
1. Sofiane Boufal (Southampton) vs West Brom
This was a special goal by Sofiane Boufal. The Moroccan won the ball at Southampton’s half and beat Nyom to make a sprint through the West Brom heart. No one could catch him in the midfield and the defenders also backtracked. He went past three baggies players and at the edge of the penalty box looked for help. He couldn’t see any help and decided to take the shot himself and scored an absolute terrific solo goal to win it for the Saints. The 24 year old’s final trickery to the goal was a cut inside to his right foot that helped him to take the shot as West Brom defender Gareth McAuley got wrong footed.
