Week 3 of the EPL season is in the books, and the new high-profile managers at Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have those clubs tearing through the league. Next week is the first international break of the season, so savor this batch of fantastic goals.
This week’s top 5 goals list is comprised of goals from 2 London clubs: Arsenal and Chelsea. While I was averse to the idea of including only goals from 2 teams, there simply weren’t any better than these five this weekend.
With no further ado (or Freddy Adu) here are the best five goals from the Premier League weekend.
5.) Mesut Özil- Arsenal
Özil makes the list with this beauty. The German midfielder made a furious run from out of nowhere, and Alexis Sanchez showed great patience and vision to find him and then delivered a perfect cross to set up Arsenal’s third goal in their 3-1 win over Watford.
4.) Willian- Chelsea
What a finish this was! When Willian made a move to the outside, it seemed like he had lost his angle at goal but then he finished brilliantly low into the far post. This was the second goal in Chelsea’s 3-0 romp versus Burnley, and somehow the other two were even better.
3.) Victor Moses- Chelsea
The buildup to Chelsea’s third goal was picture-perfect and Victor Moses gave it the emphatic finish it deserved. Chelsea have won their first three matches, and look like a contender again under new manager Antonio Conte.
2.) Eden Hazard- Chelsea
Yup, another Chelsea goal. The reinvigorated Hazard is a promising sign for Chelsea fans, and he showed why he was the 2014-2015 Premier League Player of the Season. A tremendous individual effort.
1.) Alexis Sanchez- Arsenal
What a match for Sanchez. Not only did he set up Özil with that pinpoint cross, but he beats out the Chelsea goal triumvirate to earn the top spot on this list. This finish is just ridiculous.
