EPL Goals of the Week: Rodriguez Solo Goal Sufficient at Palace
This week's goals of the week in the Premier League aren't as dazzling as normal, but they were definitely smarter than usual. Take a look.
5. Demba Ba (Chelsea) vs. Tottenham
The Senegalese international has not had enough time on the field under Jose Mourinho, but after yesterday's late double due to his intelligence, he has surely made his case. Here is one of his smart strikes.
4. Dany Welbeck (Manchester United) vs. West Brom
The English international as been coming off the bench, and he did the same yesterday. However, he scored a striker's goal, as he latched onto the defense-splitting pass to curl into the far side of the frame. Here is his magnificent technique on the score.
3. Romelu Lukaku (Everton) vs. Arsenal
The big Belgian controlled the ball calmly, then scored the equalizer at the Emirates. Here is the technique he used.
2. Samir Nasri (Manchester City) vs. Wigan Athetlic
This was a goal from the FA Cup, but it deserved to be here, as the French international truly struck a darting beauty through traffic.
1. Jay Rodriguez (Southampton) vs. Crystal Palace
This took top honors, as Jay Rodriguez bravely battled all alone in the final third to put this one away.
