Coutinho, Ramires and Vardy battle for Best Goal

Philippe Coutinho: Has impressive record against Manchester City

Philippe Coutinho: Has impressive record against Manchester City

Philippe Coutinho, Ramires and yet another Jamie Vardy strike are among our contenders for Premier League Goal of the Weekend – but who takes your vote?

The action got underway on Saturday lunchtime when Chelsea suffered the ignominy of another defeat – this time 3-1 at home to Liverpool – and the match provided the first two of our contenders thanks to Ramires‘ early opener for the Blues and Coutinho’s curling equaliser on the stroke of half-time.

The result ensured Jurgen Klopp continued his unbeaten start at Liverpool, but his first Premier League win still leaves the Reds some eight points adrift of leaders Manchester City and Arsenal, who both too enjoyed weekend wins.

Nicolas Otamendi Manchester City v Norwich TEAMtalk


City made hard work of overcoming a determined Norwich side 2-1 at the Etihad, and Nicolas Otamendi’s opener for the Blues – a powerful header from a Kevin De Bruyne corner – provides another of our contenders.

Staying on their coattails is Leicester after their 3-2 win at West Brom with man of the moment (season?) Vardy weighing in with the Foxes’ third – a fine run and finish after a one-two just inside the Albion half – but is that enough to get your vote?

Our last three contenders arrived on Sunday, with Jermain Defoe’s fine effort for Sunderland against Everton, Arouna Kone’s header to seal Everton’s thumping 6-2 win over the Black Cats and Steven Davis’ finish at the end of a great build-up in Southampton’s win over Bournemouth, all hoping to win your vote.

Cast your vote, below, and let us know if you think any of the weekend strikes should have made the cut?
