My view of the Lanzini goal at Palace was perfect; I was directly above it and watched Rice advance towards a stand that just fell quiet, to the point of silence as the ball hit the net. Messi-esque.

Antonio's goal at Elland Road is brilliant from the early recycling around the D of our penalty area, through Declan's imperious involvement, to Antonio's first touch and second rifling of the ball past the keeper. Could watch an hour of that on a loop.

Third goal at Lyon, from the ice-blooded exchanges of the ball, again near our D, to the shuttling of Fornals and Antonio down different parts of the touchline to send thoroughbred finisher Bowen down the middle. Masterful combination of excellent football. The pinnacle of achievement, winning the game with 30 minutes to go.

Antonio vs Leicester first game of the season not to be ignored, that bergkampesque touch

Yarmolenko’s v Villa for me all day long. Meant so much more than putting the ball in the net.

For sheer skill Lanzini’s at Palace, for exuberance Antonio’s late winner at Leeds - devastating goal from start to finish.

We’ve been blessed with a hatful :scarfer:

Very good point about the Yarmo goal. But for me it's got to be the Lanzini goal at Selhurst Park. Team football at it's best followed by a piece of ridiculous skill to finish it off.

Can’t disagree with any of the goals mentioned so far on this thread.

I quite liked Bowen’s goal at home to Chelsea too. And Ben Johnson’s away to Aston Villa.

Nothing is beating Masuaku’s worldie against Chelsea anyway! :D

That touch is a footballing Rorschach test.

Colour me sceptical that something involving Michail Antonio that looked like a ropey touch getting styled out wasn't in fact a ropey touch getting styled out.

Bowen's goal against Villa away (the 4th on the night from memory) is worth a mention

Between Andriy & Manuel for me. Don't think there's another player at our disposal who could have scored the former.... sublime finish. The latter bears infinite repeated viewings.....so Lanzini..... just.

Lanzini vs Palace. The only one that comes close is Lanzini vs Citeh away.

Special mention for Fornals vs Liverpool at home after Bowen's after burner run.

If he'd had his Weetabix that morning and got a little more power behind it, best goal should have been Fornals surging up the middle of Anfield before chipping Allison in front of the Kop.

Pablo Fornals vs Liverpool 7th of November 2021.

Bit controversial as it was classed as an own goal but still a cracker!
