The Premier League Gameweek 30 saw the battles for the Champions League places heat up even more. League leaders Manchester City moved closer to their fifth title after another 2-0 win over Stoke City, while Tottenham Hotspurs, Chelsea FC and Arsenal FC all registered fairly comfortable victories. In the biggest match of English Football and also probably of the world, Manchester United defeated arch-rivals Liverpool FC in the North-West Red Derby to solidify their claim to the second spot in the table.
Here are the top goals of the week:
3.) Marcus Rashford (Manchester United) vs Liverpool FC:
Marcus Rashford is a special kid. He proved that once again when he scored the brilliant first goal in the biggest game of the world(arguably) against arch-rivals Liverpool FC. A long goal kick from David De Gea was expertly won in the air by Romelu Lukaku in the path of the England youngster. After running with the ball, Rashford cut back inside deceiving fellow English teenager Trent Alexander-Arnold to set up for a right footer. His curler swung into the far right corner beyond the reaches of a diving Loris Karius.
2.) Kennedy(Newcastle United) vs Southampton FC:
The Chelsea loanee has been in a pretty decent form of late and his double strike gave Rafa Benitez’s side some daylight between them and the drop zone. His first goal was as early as the 2nd minute and that makes our list. The Brazilian did very well to position himself in between The Saints’ defending duo of Cedric Soares and Jack Stephens to receive and control Jonjo Shelvey’s long ball from the centre circle. The 22-year old then neatly turned before calmly chipping the ball past an onrushing Alex McCarthy to fire The Magpies into the lead.
1.) Jamie Vardy(Leicester City) vs West Bromwich Albion:
Jamie Vardy and scoring at The Hawthorns, still a better love story than twilight! The English striker did it again and this time it is our goal of the week. 21 minutes into the game and Riyad Mahrez sent a long ball into the West Brom penalty area from inside the Leicester half. Jamie Vardy made a swift run into the penalty area getting the better of Craig Dawson and Ahmed Hegazi. The England striker surprised everyone and took a first-time volley with his left that went past a hapless Ben Foster to equalise for The Foxes.
