Andros Townsend has won the 2018/19 Carling Goal of the Season award for his sensational long-range strike at Manchester City in Matchweek 18.
After he picked up the December 2018 Carling Goal of the Month award for his wonderful effort at Etihad Stadium, Townsend said he did not realise quite how good it was until he watched it back on TV.
"We got a free-kick and the ball's dropped out of the air," he said. "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.' "
