10 of our favourite 2022/23 Premier League goals

We’ve reached the end of the 2022/23 Premier League season and it’s been another campaign of enthralling action in England’s top flight.

As we prepare to wind down for the summer-long absence of Premier League football, we’ve decided to look back at some of the most memorable moments from the campaign.

Here are 10 of our favourite Premier League goals from the 2022/23 season.

Allan Saint-Maximin vs Wolves

Allan Saint-Maximin won August’s Goal of the Month accolade for this venomous volley that earned Newcastle a late point at Wolves.

The Frenchman has often been criticised for his end product, but rescued the Magpies a result with his 90th minute stunner at Molineux. Hwang Hee-chan’s attempted clearance dropped invitingly for the winger, who lashed home a fine finish past Jose Sa.

Youri Tielemans vs Wolves

Youri Tielemans has compiled quite the catalogue of stunning goals during his Leicester career and the midfielder seemed to be creating his own personal Goal of the Season competition during the season’s opening months.

Tielemans’ got Leicester’s 4-0 win at Wolves underway in October with a glorious goal to open the scoring, as the Belgium brilliantly blasted past Jose Sa.

The midfielder’s first-time thumper crashed in off the woodwork and set the Foxes on their way to a resounding win, a result which lifted Leicester out of the Premier League’s relegation places.

Miguel Almiron vs Fulham

Miguel Almiron’s purple patch during the autumn propelled Newcastle’s push for a top four finish, an unexpected run of goals for the Paraguayan who had struggled to find the net in previous seasons.

Almiron scored eight goals in nine appearances between October 3 and Boxing Day, a run that saw him score just one goal less than he had managed across the previous three-and-a-half seasons combined.

Almiron’s fine form began with a brace at Fulham, the first of which saw him net this superb first-half volley.

Kevin De Bruyne vs Leicester

Manchester City’s admin asked their following if this was the best free-kick ever scored for the club, after Kevin De Bruyne’s delightful effort at Leicester.

Bonus points, as ever, for the added aesthetic of crashing in off the woodwork.

Perfection from the brilliant Belgian.

 

Youri Tielemans vs Everton

That man, again.

Not content with one Goal of the Season contender in this feature, Tielemans repeated the feat with another outrageous effort during Leicester’s 2-0 win at Everton.

The Belgium international controlled James Maddison’s pass on his thigh before unleashing a delightful dipping effort that left Jordan Pickford with no chance.

Michael Olise vs Manchester United

Michael Olise has had an impressive season in the colours of Crystal Palace, with the winger having provided 10 assists during a campaign of creative quality for the Eagles.

Olise needs to add more goals to his game to reach the next level, but demonstrated what he is capable of with this fantastic free-kick against Manchester United. The Frenchman fired home an effort of pinpoint precision to secure his side a point in stoppage time.

WOW! Michael Olise has just ROBBED Man Utd of all three points with an unreal free-kick! 🔥 pic.twitter.com/lGysJsPi1L

Marcus Rashford vs Arsenal

Marcus Rashford’s post-World Cup form was just different.

Manchester United’s main man found the form of his career after returning from Qatar, embarking on a phenomenal goalscoring run to push his side into the top four.

Rashford appeared unstoppable on occasion and embarrassed Thomas Partey to score this spectacular goal at Arsenal. A brilliant nut-meg opened up the space for Rashford to take aim and he flashed an effort past England teammate Aaron Ramsdale at the Emirates.

Michael Keane vs Tottenham

Yeah, ok, we should know by now to expect the unexpected in the Premier League, but surely nobody saw this one coming?

Michael Keane had NEVER scored from outside the box in the Premier League and we’re fairly certain that 99.9% of the home crowd at Goodison Park were screaming ‘nooooooo’ when the defender lined up from range with Everton chasing an equaliser against Spurs.

Fortunately, Keane thought f*** it.

What a goal.

Matheus Nunes vs Chelsea

Matheus Nunes was the marquee arrival at Wolves last summer, the latest talent plucked from foreign shores to join the club’s contingent of Portuguese players.

Nunes has not quite showed the level that saw Pep Guardiola label the former Sporting Lisbon man ‘one of the best players in the world’ last season, but his first goal in the Premier League was certainly worth the wait.

The midfielder blasted home a wonderful strike to secure Wolves a 1-0 win over Chelsea in April.

Julio Enciso vs Chelsea

Brighton’s recruitment team rarely miss right now and Julio Enciso is the latest exciting talent beginning to make a name for himself on the south coast.

The Paraguayan teenager has seen his minutes increased over the second half of the campaign and has began to find his feet in the Premier League, with three goals and two assist in just five starts.

Enciso underlined his quality with this goal against Chelsea, a stunning winner as the Seagulls came from behind to win at Stamford Bridge.
