The last Premier League game week before the international break saw a three way tie at the top of the table as Liverpool drew goalless with City and Chelsea won 3-0 at Southampton. Here are the Goals and the Goal of the Week:
3) Ricardo Pereira (Leicester City) vs Everton:
Portuguese Ricardo Pereira is not the best associated with scoring a goal. But when he finally did score his debut goal for The Foxes, it was nothing short of sensational. He received the ball deep in Leicester half and started running down the wing. At the mid line, he played a quick one-two with Kelechi Iheanacho, which gave him more space to run with. He then ran down the wing and entered the box from the left. With two dribbling turns he took out the threat of right back Jonjoe Kenny and then hit a tremendous left footer into the near post. This can clearly be called one of the best goal of the whole season.
2) Gylfi Sigurdsson (Everton) vs Leicester City:
Leicester were hoping to earn a hard earned point against free flowing Everton, before a goal of the topmost class shook them. Gylfi Sigurdsson is already Iceland’s greatest ever player. He already scored a blinder against Fulham, and he backed it up with another out of the world goal at Leicester. After receiving Kurt Zouma’s ball in the middle, he took a Cruyffesque turn to take out an onrushing James Maddison. Everton’s last season’s record signing then hit a shot that is comparable to the greatest of strikes, that sailed into the top left corner giving Schmeichel no chance.
1) Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal) vs Fulham:
Aaron Ramsey might be unfortunately related to the most weird speculations when he scores, but to be true, they are breath takingly beautiful to watch. The same happened against Fulham when he came off the bench to score what could possibly the goal of the season. Unsurprisingly it is also our goal of the week. The move started with Hector Bellerin winning the ball back inside the Arsenal penalty area and finding Ramsey. The Welshman then played a one-two with Alexandre Lacazette, before lobbing the ball over the head of Andre Schurlle to find him back. Lacazette then volleyed the ball to a forward running Bellerin who backheeled back to Ramsey. The Welsh superstar then found Mkhitaryan, who put forward a through ball for Aubameyang. Ramsey ran into the box and when Aubameyang crossed in, he obliged with a neat back-heel finish.
