Top 5 Premiership Goals so far……

(5): Fernand Torres, Liverpool V Chelsea. Torres is fed by a beautiful ball from Steven Gerrard which is angled perfectly between Tal Ben Haim and Torres for the Spaniard to run onto. Torres took a touch, then changed pace with his next touch to leave Ben Haim for dead before cooly slotting past Petr Cech into the far corner of the net, giving Liverpool the lead on Torres’ Anfield debut.

(4): Matt Derbyshire, Blackburn Vs Middlesbrough. After Benni McCarthy went off with what apeared to be a serious injury, his Blackburn teammates were stung into action and substitute Santa Cruz scored on his debut to level matters. Then, with the game pised at 1-1 and Boro feeling hard done by to have surrendered their lead, Matt Derbyshire picked up the ball at the left hand edge of the box. The England U-21 striker then curled a beautiful shot at pace past Boro keeper Mark Schwarzer’s despairing dive that couldn’t get near the matchwinner for Blackburn.

(3): Steven Gerrard, Liverpool V Aston Villa. After Jamie Carragher’s handball gave Villa an equalising penalty with five minutes remaining, Liverpool fans began to feel it would be another first day without a win to start their season. However when Steven Gerrard went to ground from Petrov’s foul, Villa weren’t happy with the decision but Gerrard readied himself for the free-kcik. The Liverpool captain then unleashed an explosive free-kick that gave the impressive Stuart Taylor absolutely no chance in goal. The 87th minute strike proved to be the matchwinner for Liverpool.

(2): Nani, Manchester Utd V Spurs. Utd and Spurs were on level terms last Sunday with both teams anxious to register a morale-boosting victory. Both sides had come close before a ball was cleared as far as Nani and Paul Scholes in midfield. While Scholes sought the ball, Nani dribbled around his teammate and with the Spurs defence backing off, unleashed a phenomenal shot that flew into the roof of Paul Robinson’s net. The sheer power was enough to make the shot unstoppable.

(1): Charles N’Zogbia, Newcastle V Middlesbrough. With the fierce local rivals level at 0-0, enterprising left-back Charles N’Zogbia embarked on a customary attacking run down the left wing. George Boateng came across to cover the right-back slot but N’Zogbia cut inside with Boro’s captain snapping at his heels. Having cut inside the Nigerian reached the centre of the pitch before unleashing a sweet strike with his right foot past everyone and into the bottom corner to give Newcastle the lead. (take a look at the video below for confirmation!!)

    As much as I hate Jenas, I’ve got to say I think I liked his goal the most, even though it was against a naff Derby side.
