The main attraction of the fourth weekend of EPL action was clearly the Manchester Derby, but the other matches this weekend gave us a lots of amazing goals to enjoy. In fact the goals were so good this weekend that it was hard to narrow it down to just 5 goals. So I’ll first give some honorable mentions (in no particular order) before we get to the top 5 goals of a thrilling week.
Diego Costa- Chelsea
Son Heung-min- Tottenham
Robert Snodgrass- Hull City
5.) Adam Lallana- Liverpool
With the added confidence of his first international goal with England, Adam Lallana ripped this screamer into the top corner. fIt was Liverpool’s third goal in their 4-1 dispatching of Leicester City at Anfield.
4.) Callum Wilson- Bournemouth
This lovely backheel by Callum Wilson was the only goal in Bournemouth’s win against West Brom.
3.) Troy Deeney- Watford
It looked like it was going to be a rough day for Watford when they fell behind West Ham 2-0 in the first half at the Olympic Stadium on Saturday. But Watford showed great resilience, and turned the game on its head to win 4-2. This Troy Deeney chip needed to be placed absolutely perfectly, and the Watford captain delivered for the equalizer.
2.) Steven Defour- Burnley
Steven Defour’s blast from Steph Curry range earns him the second spot on the list. Burnley and Hull each got one goal apiece, with Robert Snodgrass’s splendid free kick on this list as an honorable mention.
1.) Laurent Koscielny- Arsenal
There were plenty of goals this week that could arguably be atop this list, a center back scoring a ridiculous bicycle kick like this will always be hard to beat. The Southampton keeper was actually in good position, but Koscielny’s overhead strike was simply unstoppable.
