2011: Top 10 Goals

Brought to you by William Hill


Screamers, belters, Golazos, whatever you call them, there is nothing like watching a series of spectacular goals.


With this in mind, we have compiled the best Barclays Premier League strikes of the year for your viewing pleasure.


They are in no particular order, but they are definitely all goals of the highest order. So, here goes….


1) Raul Meireles, Liverpool v Wolves


Before his somewhat acrimonious move to Chelsea, Raul Meireles was in a decent run of scoring form. There were none better than this volleyed effort at Molineux.


2) Wayne Rooney, Manchester United v Manchester City


This is many peoples’ favourite and it certainly has to be up there with the best of them. What better way to win a match – with time running out and in a tight match in a deadlock, Wayne Rooney sees a cross deflected just behind and above him. What happens next?....




3) Edin Dzeko, Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur


This was the pick of the goals when City dismantled a Spurs team that has since turned it around. You need only watch from 46 seconds in…




4) Jose Bosingwa, Chelsea v Norwich City


The Portuguese full back is very rarely on the score sheet, but gave a treat to the Stamford Bridge crowd when he opened the scoring against Norwich.





5) Robin van Persie, Arsenal v Everton


It was a tight affair at the Emirates Stadium and it was looking like the game may peter out into a draw. That is until Alex Song’s lofted pass picked out RVP…




6) Ryan Taylor, Newcastle v Everton


This was at the beginning of this season when the Magpies were flying high and looked unbeatable. You know it’s going right for you when one of your players pulls off a strike like this.





7) Carlos Tevez, Manchester City v Stoke City


The Argentinian may not be around the Etihad Stadium much anymore, but when he was there he could pull off free-kicks such as this swerving masterpiece.




8) Gabriel Agbonlahor, Aston Villa v Blackburn Rovers


Agbonlahor was having a tough time at Villa over the past 18 months or so but he started the 2011/2012 season with a bang and this I probably the pick of his goals this year.





9) Aaron Lennon, Tottenham Hotspur v Fulham


Spurs title credentials were building around this time and they gave further evidence they may have what it takes to stay the course by winning ugly at Fulham. This lovely move by Lennon late in the first half turned out to be the winner.




10) Ashley Young, Manchester United v Arsenal


You could argue that this goal was the spark that set United off on their trouncing of Arsenal. Robin van Persie had a penalty saved a couple of minutes earlier and Young finds the top corner to compound the Gunners’ misery.
