Premier League 2023-24: The best goals of the season

Following the conclusion of the 2023-24 Premier League campaign it’s time to reflect on the best moments from the season.

Here, we celebrate the best goals scored.

Kaoru Mitoma vs (Brighton) Wolves

Don’t say it. Don’t say it. Don’t say it.

KAORU MITOMA DID A UNIVERSITY THESIS ON DRIBBLING!

Right, now that’s out the way, it was great to see the Brighton winger reap the rewards of his studies in an early-season encounter against Wolves. Mitoma just kept going and going during a superb solo run at Molineux, leaving a trail of gold shirts in his wake.

The best Premier League signings of 2023/24

Alejandro Garnacho (Manchester United) vs Everton

The Goal of the Season competition was pretty much ended as a contest in November.

There’s been some pretty special strikes in the Premier League in 2023-24 but few will get replayed for decades to come. Alejandro Garnacho’s will.

Garnacho’s glorious goal was an audacious execution of athleticism and technique to stun Everton, the sort of jaw-dropping moment that invokes a second of silence before rapturous applause.

Kobbie Mainoo (Manchester United) vs Wolves

Manchester United might have had a miserable season in the Premier League, slumping to their lowest-league finish since 1989-90.

However, Garnacho’s goal was not the only brief moment of elation for the Red Devils support. Bruno Fernandes’ terrific technique on the volley at Burnley and Marcus Rashford’s rocket in the Manchester Derby don’t quite make the cut here, but Kobbie Mainoo’s mesmerising run at Wolves does.

The teenager has been the silver lining of the season for Erik ten Hag and his team and scored a sensational 97th-minute winner as Manchester United beat Wolves in a classic.

Premier League awards from the final day of the season

Alexis Mac Allister (Liverpool) vs Fulham

Liverpool’s 4-3 win over Fulham was one of the games of the season as the Reds fought back to edge a thriller at Anfield late on.

It was a contest littered with superb strikes as Trent Alexander-Arnold and Wataru Endo scored fine efforts for Liverpool, though it was Alexis Mac Allister’s drive from distance – his first since signing for Liverpool from Brighton in the summer – that was the best of the bunch.

With the ball bouncing up invitingly, the World Cup winner let fly with a dipping effort that left Bernd Leno in the Fulham goal with no chance.

“I think it was the best goal I scored in my life,” Mac Allister said afterwards.

He’s not wrong.

Five things we learned from the final day of the Premier League

Moises Caicedo (Chelsea) vs Bournemouth

The Premier League’s final-day saw some great goals scored, including Moises Caicedo opening his Chelsea account in some style.

The Ecuador midfielder unleashed a 50-yard effort over stranded Bournemouth goalkeeper Neto, the furthest distance a Premier League player has scored from since Wayne Rooney for Everton against West Ham 2017.

An honourable mention for this final-day effort from Mohammed Kudus. The Ghana international has had an impressive debut campaign at West Ham and ended the season spectacularly with an acrobatic goal against the champions.
