Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam scored an unbelievable 60-yard strike from inside his own half against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge today.

The Scottish midfielder picked up the ball in his own half, saw Thibaut Courtois off his line in goal and powered a shot into the net and beyond the grasp of the Belgian shotstopper.

The goal, which has already drawn comparisons with David Beckham's incredible goal from the halfway line against Wimbledon back in 1996, and has been hailed as one of the best scored in Premier League history. 

"That's the best goal I have seen live, take a bow @Charlie26Adam, unbelievable strike" tweeted former Stoke player Matthew Ethrington, while Sky Sports went one step further:

Chelsea had taken the lead earlier on in the game after Cesc Fabregas had been felled in the penalty box, with Eden Hazard finishing the job from 12 yards out. The Blues had looked comfortable before Adam's strike, but are now locked in a battle to maintain their advantage at the top of the table with Manchester City still to play.
