1ST: 29% – Andros Townsend – Man City v CRYSTAL PALACE – Saturday 22nd December
Some great goals in the running for Goal of the Season but I can’t look past Andros Townsend vs City. Truly remarkable volley.

However, the final decision went to pundits Alan Shearer, Ian Wright and Gary Lineker who went for Vincent Kompany’s goal.
Ian Wright said: “I quite like Andros Townsend because of the difficulty of strike and it was magnificent.
“But then Vincent Kompany’s significance of the strike.”
Alan Shearer said: “I think Vincent Kompany, the brilliance, the importance, the timing, so I think Vincent Kompany.”
After confusion thinking it was one a piece, Ian then corrected Gary in saying he in the end went for Vincent, before Lineker then admitted he would have gone from Kompany’s anyway as you can see in the video below…
You chose the top three, but there can only be one winner.
