CHRIS SUTTON

1) ANDROS TOWNSEND (CRYSTAL PALACE V MANCHESTER CITY, DECEMBER 22)

Nobody will score a better goal this season. He absolutely hammered the ball into the net. To get that kind of connection is such a hard skill — and the fact Palace went on to beat the champions makes it more special.

2) PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG (ARSENAL V LEICESTER, OCTOBER 22)

A brilliant team move with Arsenal going from one end to the other in nine seconds. Ozil was at his creative best and Aubameyang finished it off superbly.

3) DANIEL STURRIDGE (LIVERPOOL V CHELSEA, SEPTEMBER 29)

Thirty yards out with a minute on the clock, Sturridge’s sensational strike was hugely significant in preserving Liverpool’s unbeaten run.

MARTIN KEOWN

1) DANIEL STURRIDGE (LIVERPOOL V CHELSEA, SEPTEMBER 29)

I’ve put this ahead of Townsend’s strike because I believe it was a more difficult chance. It was such an imaginative strike and it kept Liverpool unbeaten.

2) ANDROS TOWNSEND (CRYSTAL PALACE V MANCHESTER CITY, DECEMBER 22)

He had more time and space than Sturridge but still needed to catch that volley incredibly sweetly. This will prove a significant goal at both ends of the table. 

3) AARON RAMSEY (ARSENAL V FULHAM, OCTOBER 7)

A Harlem Globetrotters goal that involved five Arsenal players and had fans singing, ‘We’ve got our Arsenal back’.

JAMIE REDKNAPP

1) ANDROS TOWNSEND (CRYSTAL PALACE V MANCHESTER CITY, DECEMBER 22)

It’s the best volley in the Premier League this season, but it’s not the best overall. You cannot beat John McGinn’s goal for Aston Villa against Sheffield Wednesday in September! 

2) DANIEL STURRIDGE (LIVERPOOL V CHELSEA, SEPTEMBER 29)

To execute that finish under pressure with just a minute to go showed his class. 

3) ANTHONY MARTIAL (MANCHESTER UNITED V CARDIFF, DECEMBER 22)

I love a great team goal and this highlighted the instant change at United following Jose Mourinho’s exit.
