The 10 greatest celebrations in Premier League history as voted by football fans


There's no greater feeling in football than scoring a goal. After all, we've all gone wild after tapping in from a couple of yards on a Sunday morning.

What's your go-to celebration? A classic knee slide, a few high-fives with your teammates, or maybe a cheeky 'shush' to the opposition? 

Whatever your favourite is, we can almost guarantee we've seen it time and time again in the Premier League

But there are a few iconic celebrations that should only be performed by those playing in the best league in the world.

Steven Gerrard's camera kiss and Peter Crouch's 'robot' spring to mind - and we can expect to see a few more memorable celebrations born as this season goes on too. 

But what is the greatest celebration in Premier League history? Well, Panini Stickers asked that very question during the international break, and football fans have voted for their top 10. 

10 - Mohamed Salah

After scoring a stunner against his former club Chelsea last season, Mo Salah adopted a yoga-style 'tree pose' and stood balanced on one leg before being mobbed by his teammates. 

"I'm a yoga man! I do yoga and it just came into my mind," he said after the game. 


9 - Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 

The Arsenal striker has pulled off some famous celebrations throughout his career. But it's his dance towards the corner flag with a number of teammates that has made number nine on this list. 

8 - Jimmy Bullard

Perhaps the most infamous celebration in Premier League history. On Boxing Day in 2008, Hull were 4-0 down against Manchester City and manager Phil Brown decided to do his half-time team talk on the pitch. 

Fast forward a year and Bullard snatches a last-minute equaliser at the same ground, before sitting his teammates down and wagging his finger. Iconic.

7 - Eric Cantona 

Back in 1996, Cantona scored a sublime chip against Sunderland and he celebrated by 'peacocking'. 

The Frenchman slowly rotated on the spot, before lifting his arms to take the acclaim of his teammates and millions who have watched the goal since. So famous, his celebration is now in FIFA. 

6 - Alan Shearer

This wasn't a one-time thing. Shearer celebrated basically all but one of his 260 Premier League goals by lifting his right arm in the air. 

Sunderland v Newcastle United

The one he didn't? His final goal against Newcastle's arch-rivals Sunderland. That was done with two arms raised, index fingers pointing to the air. It's since been immortalized as a statue outside St James' Park. 

5 - Christian Benteke 

We've seen this more than once too - Benteke paying homage to NBA star LeBron James. 

The Crystal Palace star pulls off the 'Silencer' dance by stomping his feet, signaling to the crowd to calm down and pumping his chest.

4 - Steven Gerrard

Gerrard capped off Liverpool's famous 4-1 win against Manchester United at Old Trafford with a famous celebration. 

After converting a penalty the Reds captain ran to the corner flag kissing his badge, before leaving another huge kiss on the camera. 


3 - Peter Crouch

Crouchy debuted 'the robot' in an England friendly ahead of the 2006 World Cup.

His dance moves caught the attention of the football world and it wasn't long before we saw it in the Premier League too. Undoubtedly one of the greatest ever.

2 - Sergio Aguero

The situation has something to do with this ranking so high. We all know the story - Man City needed a win against QPR on the last day of the season to clinch their first-ever title. 

The game was tied at 2-2 until Aguero popped up in the 95th minute to smash the ball into the net, sending the Etihad wild.

He celebrated by ripping off his shirt and waving it above his head, sprinting towards the fans. An iconic goal, and a celebration to match.

1 - Daniel Sturridge 

During the 2013/14 season, Sturridge was scoring regularly for Liverpool and he celebrated every goal with a cheeky dance move, similar to Crouch's robot. 

Like a few others, his celebration has been added to FIFA, further boosting its popularity. Sadly, we probably won't ever see it in England again, as Sturridge has just completed a move to Turkey.
