Top Ten Premier League Goals Of All Time

Over the years we have all seen some wonder goals in the premiership but what ones were the best? Here’s my favourite ten:

10 – Alan Shearer vs Everton

Pure inspiration from Newcastle’s talisman. The ball got played forward where Shola Ameobi tried to get a flick on. His header fell straight to Alan Shearer’s right boot and from about 25 yards out rifled the ball into the top right corner leaving the keeper with no chance. Cue the one armed celebration.

9 – David Beckham vs Wimbledon

David Beckham was a relative newcomer on the premier league stage when he scored this stunning strike. Picking the ball up on the half way line he moved forward a few yards. Looking up he noticed keeper Tim Flowers off his line and from a good 50 yards out made the keeper look foolish. From then everyone knew the name David Beckham.

8 – Eric Cantona vs Sunderland

This goal should be on the list just for the outrageous celebration. Cantona received the ball on the half way line. He jinked past two men before bursting into space. He then played a one two with Brian McClair before chipping the keeper from just outside the box. The celebration? He turned, of course with his collar up, and just raised his arms as an acknowledgement of his greatness. Pure class.

7 – Thierry Henry vs Manchester United

Henry, the record Arsenal goal scorer, had a knack of scoring in the big games and they didn’t come much bigger than Arsenal vs Manchester United. Big games require class goals and Henry produced them more often than not. The ball was played into Henry with his back towards goal and a defender tight to him. Most players would have to lay the ball off but not Henry. He flicked the ball up to himself before volleying past Barthez who was just as shocked as everyone else.

6 – Tony Yeboah vs Liverpool

Tony Yeboah may not have been the most successful striker but the Leeds man knew how to strike a ball.  The ball was pumped up to Wallace whose header went back to Yeboah. As the ball fell from the sky you could sense that only one thing was going to happen and that was Yeboah firing the ball off the cross bar and into the net.

5 – Wayne Rooney vs Man City

Great moments create great games and boy was this a great moment. Nani had the ball out wide and his slightly deflected cross fell just behind Rooney. Most would try and bring it down but all of sudden Rooney was attempting an unthinkable overhead kick. Before we knew it the ball was in the back of the net leaving Joe Hart no chance. Off went Rooney creating a memorable celebration stopping dead still, head back and arms outstretched. People will always remember that goal.

4 – Matt Le Tissier vs Newcastle

Matt Le Tissier could’ve had several goals on this list. As it goes, he has two and this first one showed off the balance that Le Tissier possessed. The ball was floated over to him and using the outside of his boot he kept the ball going. He then flicked it past one defender then over the head of another before calmly slotting the ball past the keeper. Sensational.

3 – Paulo Di Canio vs Wimbledon

There are a lot of words that could describe Di Canio and not all good. But there can only one word that describes this goal. Breath-taking.  The ball was played into the box where he had peeled off the defender but the angle was very tight. No matter though as Di Canio unleashed a shot with the outside of his right boot leaving the keeper helpless. As I said – breath-taking.

2 – Le Tissier vs Blackburn

One of the best goals I have ever seen and you have to wonder how Le Tissier wasn’t played more for England. Le Tissier received the ball and jinked his way around two players before unleashing a ridiculous curling shot from around 40 yards. The keeper maybe as shocked as everyone else that a shot came from that far out couldn’t do anything about it. More pure brilliance from the one club man.

1 – Dennis Bergkamp vs Newcastle

My favourite Premiership goal ever from one of the classiest players the Premiership has ever seen. He was not the goal machine that other strikers were but Bergkamp has the guile and class to make any defender look stupid. The ball was played into him and he managed to flick the around the Newcastle defender before twisting the other way around the defender and meeting the ball to place it into the goal. Take a look for yourself and prepared to be amazed.
