Poll: Who scored the best goal in the Premier League this week?


Football purists and club managers may both moan about any fixture not played at 3pm on a Saturday but the latest round of mid-week Premier League fixtures was a welcome reminder of how exciting England’s top flight can be.

With two 3-3 draws, another Leicester win and a rare victory for Aston Villa this latest round of games may have left many punters tearing up their acca slips but the quality of football on display is some consolation.

Jonny Howson – Stoke v Norwich
