Ask any football fan to name the best Premier League goals of all time and there are some obvious ones that spring to mind.
Wayne Rooney’s overhead kick against Manchester City and Jack Wilshere finishing off a brilliant team goal by Arsenal have to be right up there.
We’ve all seen them repeated time and again on Sky Sports, so they’re fresh in the memory.
Yet there are some strikes which, for reasons unbeknown, have slipped under the radar in that conversation.
Often, it’s because they weren’t scored by a particularly big name.
- Erling Haaland spotted signing Man United shirt
- Villa players mocked for celebrations v Liverpool
- Fans question Pogba’s illness after dancing video
That doesn’t mean they don’t deserve to be remembered, however, so over at GIVEMESPORT, we’ve compiled a list to rejoice in the Ricardo Fullers and Tom Huddlestones of this world. They just don’t get enough credit.
Tom Huddlestone vs Manchester City
The midfielder didn’t score many, but when he did, they were often spectacular. Case in point, this perfectly-hit half-volley against City.
Ivan Campo vs Tottenham
Bolton had some real talent in 2006 and Campo was one of their unsung heroes. The Spaniard moved from defence to central midfield in his later years and it paid off with moments like this:
Wahbi Khazri vs Chelsea
A lot of people won’t remember the name Wahbi Khazri. Sunderland fans just might, though, thanks to his screamer against Chelsea when the Black Cats were battling relegation.
Yossi Benayoun vs Fulham
Fulham must still be having nightmares about Benayoun as he also beat them with a last-minute winner during his days at Liverpool. That’s perhaps better remembered than this underrated effort from his West Ham years.
Pajtim Kasami vs Crystal Palace
Let’s not forget Kasami hit this on his weaker foot. Unreal.
Stephen Carr vs Manchester United
Nowadays, we expect a lot more from full-backs going forward. Back in 1999, Carr stunned White Hart Lane with a rampaging run and a brilliant long-range strike.
Diniyar Bilyaletdinov vs Manchester United
The Russian simply didn’t do tap-ins. When he scored, it was nearly always at Goodison Park and rarely away from home. And it was usually a veritable thunderbolt.
Alexander Tettey vs Sunderland
John O’Shea’s clearance found the feet of Tettey, who nobody envisaged finishing with an absolute rocket. It ensured Norwich gained a vital three points via a 2-0 win.
Erik Edman vs Liverpool
Tottenham have had very few joyous moments at Anfield in recent memory but their Swedish full-back’s thunderous strike was one of them. Edman picked the ball up and blasted it past Jerzy Dudek from 35 yards.
Ricardo Fuller vs Aston Villa
Fuller had his fair share of disciplinary problems but it shouldn’t be forgotten that he once turned into Dennis Bergkamp while playing against Aston Villa.
Perhaps they weren’t the Premier League’s biggest stars – but that doesn’t mean their goals should fade into obscurity.
