Premier League Goal of 2018/2019 Season revealed
The Premier League has picked Andros Townsend’s strike for Crystal Palace against Manchester City in December as the official Goal of the Season.
Townsend’s stunning strike helped Palace to a shock 3-2 win over the champions.
“We got a free-kick and the ball’s dropped out of the air.
“I just thought, ‘Yeah, it’s sat up perfectly, I’m going to hit this’.
“I didn’t really know how good a goal it was. Everyone was saying, ‘It was incredible, it was the best goal I’ve ever seen’.
“I just thought it was a volley from outside the box and it’s not until I watched it back, then I thought, ‘Oh wow, maybe that is a bit special,” Townsend said while explaining the goal to Sky Sports.
The strike becomes the third winner of the Premier League’s official Goal of the Season award after Emre Can’s strike for Liverpool against Watford in 2016/17 and Sofiane Boufal’s goal for Southampton against West Brom last season.
