Premier League Goals of the Week: Toure Rocket Stuns Sunderland
EPL Goals of the Week
The Premier League always brings us beautiful goals during every week of play. Last week, we took a look at some spectacular strikes from some of the very best players in that region. Some goals were based on skill whereas others were based on perfect timing. However they were scored, they were all remarkable.
Before we take a look at this week's wonders, let's remember that the Premier League season will be ending in just over two months. The top of the table only separates the teams by a small sum of points. Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal are the most serious contenders that have the highest chances of winning.
Manchester City played in the Capitol One Cup final and successfully hoisted the trophy after coming from behind to defeat Sunderland, 3-1. This game produced two of the amazing five goals that are hot this week due to two of the midfielders finding a special way to find the back of the net.
In this league, the goals are not always glamorous to watch, but they are ever so important when it comes to gaining the maximum or minimum amount of points. Playing in this league is not easy by any means, but this is used as an advantage by the players since they are all hungry for success. Sometimes, that hunger allows them to use all of their passion and skill as a combination that produces some of the most beautiful strikes on frame, which is why watching them play is always worth it.
Here, we take a good look at the five best goals of the English Premier League from this past weekend.
5. Roberto Soldado Against Cardiff City
This man has struggled to find his La Liga form here in the Premier League during his first season with Tottenham. However, he did manage to score one of the simplest yet smartest goals of his career against Cardiff.
4. Moussa Sissoko Against Hull City
The midfielder enjoys regular minutes for Newcastle, but he does not score too often. So, when he scored yesterday, he knew he had to make it good...and he certainly did.
3. Samir Nasri Against Sunderland
Samir Nasri does not always start, but when he does, he proves why he is irreplaceable. Yesterday in the Capitol One Cup final, he netted an absolute beauty.
2. Christian Benteke Against Norwich City
After coming back from injury, the big Belgian striker picked up right where he left off, scoring pretty goals. This was not his first match back, but the goal he scored made nothing else matter.
1. Yaya Toure Against Sunderland
Yaya Toure is the midfield stalwart of Manchester City, so we know that he is in charge of holding up play and distributing. However, sometimes he feels the need to score...
