A host of fantastic goals have been scored so far this Barclays Premier League season – and premierleague.com readers have the chance to vote for their favourite.
A selection of the best goals up to and including Matchweek 19 of the 2013/14 is at the top of this page, and from that we have selected what we think are the best strikes for you to vote on.
It was a difficult decision to make but the five goals we picked out are:
19 Oct: Jack Wilshere, Arsenal (v Norwich City)
Wilshere started a sweeping move that began deep in his own half and involved numerous Arsenal team-mates before he popped up in the area to run on to Olivier Giroud's flick and and cushion a first-time shot into the net.
21 Oct: Pajtim Kasami, Fulham (v Crystal Palace)
With Fulham a goal behind Kasami took Sascha Riether's floated pass on his chest on the right-hand edge of the penalty area and, from a seemingly impossible angle, unleashed a dipping volley over Julian Speroni and into the top-left corner while runniing away from goal. It was an equaliser that changed the complexion of the match.
26 Oct: Daniel Sturridge, Liverpool (v West Bromwich Albion)
Collecting the ball deep 40 yards from goal, Sturridge fought off the attentions of Youssouf Mulumbu and, despite running towards the left edge of West Brom's penalty area, showed great vision and touch to loft a deft 20-yard chip back over Boaz Myhill and into the top left-hand corner of the net
4 December: Luis Suarez (third goal), Liverpool (v Norwich City)
One of four goals he scored in a single-handed demoltion of Norwich, this was probably the pick of them as Suarez cut inside from the left, flicked the ball over Leroy Fer and dispatched a stinging strike on the half-volley across the helpless John Ruddy to complete his hat-trick.
29 December: Seamus Coleman, Everton (v Southampton)
The full-back collected the ball wide on the right, cut inside James Ward-Prowse and advanced into the area, from where he rifled a ferocious shot across goalkeeper Kelvin Davis and into the far left-hand corner.
