Monday Night Football declares Top 10 Premier League Goals of the decade
#10) Vincent Kompany vs Leicester City (2019)
Manchester City went on to win the Premier League last season. However, with Liverpool hovering very close behind, the defending champions couldn’t afford to drop points. Chasing their second consecutive Premier League title, Pep Guardiola’s side ran into a brick wall in the shape of Leicester City.
With 20 minutes left in the match and City desperately needing 3 points, Club captain Vincent Kompany decided to take a risk. You can see him look at the goal a couple of times before launching a well measured strike from over 30 yards out!
The ball went on to beat Kasper Schmeichel and eventually gave City the win. Pep Guardiola’s reaction after the goal says it all. City would eventually overcome Liverpool’s threat to register their 2nd on the trot and 4th Premier League title.
#9) Andros Townsend vs Manchester City (2018)
Here’s another on this list that includes Manchester City. However, this one saw the eventual champions concede a blinder that frankly no one saw coming. Pep Guardiola’s side had been phenomenal through the season.
They were beating teams left and right but at home, if it was possible, they seemed even more dangerous and yet Crystal Palace managed to slay the beast at their own home. A 3-2 win at the Etihad was the perfect way for Crystal Palace to embrace Christmas.
Man City’s attempt at clearance after Crystal Palace’s free kick saw Bernardo Silva head the ball out of the box. However, the ball found Andros Townsend, who sent the fall flying into the top corner from over 30 yards. This goal was deservedly given the goal of the season for the 18/19 season.
