It’s not often you see a player score directly from a corner kick.
Only a select few footballers have achieved the feat in Premier League action and one of them is AFC Bournemouth winger Junior Stanislas.
The Englishman delivered the goods in a home match against Manchester United back in December 2015.
Stanislas’ effort in just the second-minute of proceedings completely deceived a flapping David de Gea and nestled in the far corner of the net to send the fans inside the Vitality Stadium wild.

Bournemouth went on to achieve victory by a scoreline of 2-1, with Joshua King netting the winner against his former team shortly after half-time.
Stanislas’ goal was undoubtedly the game’s standout moment, though.
And the sensational strike from the corner flag also paved the way for Jamie Redknapp to deliver some iconic half-time analysis.
To make it all the more funny, Redknapp genuinely said: “That’s a corner flag there as you can see.”

Cheers for that, Jamie.
Redknapp was attempting to highlight how the wind may have played a part in the goal, but there was absolutely no need to actually circle an object that every single football fan is very familiar with.
Truly elite punditry…
Despite having a plethora of injuries to key players like Callum Wilson, Bournemouth managed to avoid relegation in their first season in the Premier League.
The Cherries ended up finishing 16th in the table and five points clear of Newcastle United in 18th after an impressive second half of the campaign.
They now find themselves in the Championship following five consecutive seasons in the top-flight, but promotion to the big time is certainly looking on the cards in 2021/22 for the south coast club.
