Cristiano Ronaldo vs Portsmouth (2008)


The only direct free-kick on the list comes from arguably the best player to ever grace the Premier League. The movement of the ball practically defies physics, the keeper stood absolutely no chance!

14) Olivier Giroud vs Crystal Palace- 2017

An absolute beauty from this season via the French genius that is Olivier Giroud. After watching Manchester United's Henrikh Mkhitaryan pull off something similar weeks before, Giroud thought he'd outdo the Armenian and become the king of the scorpion kicks!

13) Matt Le Tissier vs Newcastle (1993)

One from the earlier days of the Premier League. Matt Le Tissier scored a host of wonder goals for Southampton but this one takes the biscuit. His sublime flicks left the Newcastle defenders bewildered.

12) Steven Gerrard vs Middelsbrough (2004)

A moment of genius from Liverpool's captain fantastic. Gerrard's two finest goals for the Reds came against West Ham and Olympiacos in cup competition but this was the pick of his league strikes. A goal very few players could pull off.

11) Paolo Di Canio vs Wimbledon- 2000

The feisty Italian often made the headlines for the wrong reasons but nobody can argue about the quality of this goal. Di Canio perfectly judged a long diagonal ball and scissor kicked a beauty into the bottom corner. Bellissimo.

10) Alan Shearer vs Everton (2003)

Shearer is the Premier League's all-time leading scorer and this one is the pick of his bunch. Newcastle had been trailing in the match but this thunderous volley ensured the points belonged to the Magpies.

9) Robin van Persie vs Aston Villa (2013)

Robin van Persie almost single-handedly won United the title in the 2012/13 season. The Red Devils actually clinched the league thanks to this win over Villa with the Dutchman's goal the icing on the cake.

8) Thierry Henry vs Manchester United- 2000

A real moment of Va Va Voom from the gifted Frenchman. A wonderfully unique goal- the type of which has not been seen since.

7) Jack Wilshere vs Norwich City- 2013

This goal epitomises what Arsenal are all about- you could even call it a work of art! Slick interplay carved open the Norwich defence with Wilshere finishing in style. Blink and you'll miss it!

6) Wayne Rooney vs Newcastle United- 2005

An absolute peach from Rooney's first year at United. The striker was actually about to be substituted before the goal but thankfully he wasn't! The rest, as they say, is history. A seemingly irate Rooney rocketed in the volley to help United come from behind and beat Newcastle.

5) Dennis Bergkamp vs Newcastle United- 2002

Probably the finest moment of skill and control you'll ever see. Most players could try this a thousand times but never execute what King Dennis did. It's hard to put the beauty of this goal into words so just let the video do the talking!

4) David Beckham vs Wimbledon- 1996

The goal which made the world take notice of a young David Beckham. In United's first game of the 1996/97 season, Becks saw the home goalkeeper off his line and tried something outrageous. It came off and it remains one of the most iconic goals in Premier League history.

3) Stan Collymore vs Newcastle United (1996)

Not the greatest strike in terms of quality but this one is all about the occasion. With Liverpool and Newcastle both going for the title, this topsy-turvy match was voted the greatest game of Premier League history. Collymore fired home a late winner to break Newcastle's hearts. Watch out for Kevin Keegan's famous slouch too!

2) Sergio Aguero vs QPR (2012)

Another one that's more about the occasion, and what an occasion it was! On the final day of the 2012 season, all Manchester City needed to do was beat QPR and a first ever Premier League title would be there's. The visitors hadn't read the script and went into a 2-1 lead. Eden Dzeko equalized before Sergio Aguero stepped up to send the Etihad crazy. Martin Tyler's commentary makes it even better.

1) Wayne Rooney vs Manchester City (2011)

A goal which combines outrageous skill with a hugely important occasion. Manchester United, going for the title desperately needed three points against arch rivals Manchester City. With the score line locked at 1-1, Wayne Rooney produced the finest goal the Premier League has ever seen. His divine bicycle kick won United the game with Sir Alex Ferguson's men going on to win the title.
