Carling Cup: Top Five Goals

Published Add your comment

5. Park Chu-Young v Bolton Wanderers

Park has had little opportunity to impress since his move from Monaco, but against Bolton he took his chance with aplomb. After Andrey Arshavin's threaded pass, Park steadied himself to curl the ball into the far corner. Not a bad way to get off the mark in English football.

4. Edin Dzeko v Wolverhampton Wanderers

They caught Wolverhampton Wanderers defensively shy at times on Wednesday night, but the move to City's fifth goal would have scythed through most of the world's defences. Samir Nasri ran into the heart of the Wolves back-four, exchanged passes with Dzeko, who found Stefan Savic, whose ball across found the incoming Bosnian, who tapped home.

3. Antonio Valencia v Aldershot Town

Two-down, Aldershot were allowing United too much room on the ball and Valencia took full advantage, lashed the ball high into the net from range, condemning Ross Worner's dive as a mere token gesture.

2. Yohan Cabaye v Blackburn Rovers

With Newcastle in a race against time to draw level, a free-kick 35 yards out gave them the perfect opportunity to load the box in the closing minutes, but the Frenchman had other ideas. Fresh from his superb goal for The Toon against Wigan, the playmaker curled the ball beyond Mark Bunn to force extra-time.

1. Luis Suarez v Stoke City

With Liverpool one-down and heading out of the Carling Cup, it was left to their their talismanic striker to draw them level, and how. After picking the ball up on the left, the Uruguayan nutmegged Ryan Shotton, before curling beyond Thomas Sorenson from the corner of the penalty area. A goal fit to win any football match.
