Redknapp lists his top 20 Premier League goals of all time

Date published: Saturday 7th January 2017 12:09

Jamie Redknapp has selected a somewhat surprising choice for his best Premier League goal of all time after listing the top 20 efforts in the competition’s history. 

The debate about the greatest goals in the Premier League has raged in recent days following amazing scorpion kicks scored by Olivier Giroud and Henrikh Mkhitaryan – with Redknapp causing controversy when he claimed that the Arsenal’s striker’s recent effort against Crystal Palace was not one of the finest goals in the modern history of England’s top flight.

In his column for the Daily Mail, Redknapp has elaborated on his stance, naming the 20 greatest Premier League goals ever.

“Not everyone will agree with my choices and there are plenty of strikes I would have loved to have included,’ he wrote.

“I can’t even find room for two of the Premier League’s greatest players – Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard – but they scored enough goals that I’m sure they won’t mind!”

Strikes from Alan Shearer, Luis Suarez, Gareth Bale and Wayne Rooney are included – with Thierry Henry appearing twice – but it is Paolo Di Canio who takes the crown for his iconic volley against Wimbledon in 2000.

“His flying volley is the purest strike you will ever see. In terms of technical difficulty it’s 10 out of 10,” he said of the Italian’s strike for West Ham against Wimbledon.

According to Redknapp, Manchester United have scored five of the greatest Premier League goals ever, with Arsenal scoring four, and West Ham and Tottenham two each.

    Marshy where is Yeboah’s strike against Wimbledon?? Absolute classic. All about opinions though.

    It was an absolute classic and it happened so fast it was amazing. Also where is Dalian Atkinson? Surely his goal beats Payets for similar style of beating players, plus the finish was better.

    I’m sure we can all think of dozens of goals missing, Le Tisseir could probably have about 12 in there himself…that brilliant Goonie Team Goal should be in there too…
