100 Premier League goals – which are the best?
When Andre Gray gave Burnley a 2-1 lead at Swansea last Saturday it was our 100th goal in the Premier League, taking in 2009/10 and 2014/15 along with the current season.
We scored a total of 42 in that first season under the management of Owen Coyle and Brian Laws and added a further 28 two seasons ago to take that total to 70. We’ve added a further 30 this season to take that total into three figures.
Most of us will remember the first, scored by Robbie Blake in a 1-0 win against Manchester United. It was the last Turf Moor goal Robbie scored while the last home goal was, of course, Robbie Brady’s free kick in the recent 1-1 draw against Chelsea.
We’ve had some debate since the Swansea game and have come up with what we think are the best twenty of those goals and included them in a voting poll which will run for the next three days. It includes seven from each of the two previous seasons in the Premier League and a further six from this season. You can vote for up to three of your favourite goals from the list.
As with the man of the match votes, as well as below, it can be found on every page of the site, if viewing the desktop version, below the monthly archives.
The result of our best Premier League goals will be published next week.
Those 100 goals have been scored by 31 different players, 30 of them in Burnley colours to add to one own goal.
11: Danny Ings
9: Ashley Barnes
8: Steven Fletcher & Andre Gray
7: Graham Alexander
6: George Boyd & David Nugent
