๐Ÿฟ Premier League: 13 of the best goals ever scored

Narrowing the best Premier League goals of all-time down to a solitary list that would fit in one article is an impossible task.

In the month of December 2006 alone there was a catalogue of wonder strikes that could have all been nominated for goal of the season in 2006-07.

Personal preference makes it an entirely subjective debate, and even then, an individual's own favourites might vary from day to day, month to month or even over stretches of time that go beyond that.

So today's task isn't complicated; to present you with a bunch of brilliant goals that immediately spring to mind, starting with Michael Essien's screamer from, you guessed it, December 2006. And by the way, players from all six continents are represented in this list of 13. 

🎯 Essien vs Arsenal (2006)

An outside-of-the-boot curler/swerver struck with a portion of the laces so it also possesses ferocious power and then it gently grazes the inside of the post. Never seen anything like it. 

🔨 Yeboah vs Wimbledon (1995)

This Ghanaian star specialized in long-range strikes that clattered into the woodwork. Rumour has it, the frame of that goal is still shaking. A cult hero at Leeds.

📐 Papiss Cissé vs Chelsea (2011)

Still unsure how he even did this. Swerve, power, ludicrous angle. Difficulty level 100. Enjoy this one from all angles, over and over again. 

🌪 Torres vs Blackburn (2009)

Torres takes this out of the sky nonchalantly on his chest before firing home from an acute angle. One of the best players in the world at the time. 

🇹🇬 Adebayor vs Tottenham (2007)

Absolutely sensational first touch to put Fàbregas' precise pass under his spell, and then one of the cleanest volleys you'll ever see.  

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 Wilshere vs Norwich (2013)

The Tiki-Taka, Pinball version of a goal. 

🗽 Henry vs Tottenham (2002)

This knee-slide celebration later became commemorated as a statue. In fairness, Henry scored more than a handful of goals that qualify for this conversation. 

🚲 Rooney vs Manchester City (2012)

An acrobatic effort in the Manchester Derby that nobody will ever forget, from a man who scored 208 Premier League goals. This was probably the very best of them. 

🪄 Bergkamp vs Newcastle (2002)

Did he or didn't he mean to do that? The Dutchman says that he did, and we believe him. 

🪶 Suárez vs Newcastle (2012)

What an UNBELIEVABLE feather-like first touch. 

🥇 Son vs Burnley (2020)

A stunning solo effort as defenders just melted away. 

🏹 Harry Kewell vs Arsenal (2003)

A goal that ended Arsenal's title chances in 2003, arrowing through the hearts of Gunners fans and into the bottom corner.

🇺🇸 Christian Pulisic vs Crystal Palace (2020 & 2021)

Perhaps these aren't quite all-time greats, but the spooky similarity between two Christian Pulisic goals vs Crystal Palace just can't be ignored.

So, which of the hundreds of sensational "goal of all-time" contenders have been left out?
