Fernandinho - Oracle Most Powerful Goal Man City

Man City's Brazilian claims inaugural prize for his thunderbolt at Leeds clocked at 117.6km/h

In a season full of tremendous strikes, only one shot could win the new Most Powerful Goal award. 

Fernandinho's stoppage-time goal in Manchester City's 4-0 victory at Leeds United claims the inaugural prize. 

The Man City midfielder's fierce shot was measured to have an average speed of 117.6km/h between the ball leaving his boot to crossing the goalline. 

This was the fastest average speed from all the goals scored from outside the area in the 2021/22 season, without a deflection off another player.

It was by far the most powerful shot calculated by Oracle, the Premier League's official cloud provider.

The Brazilian's strike beat the next-most powerful goal, James Ward-Prowse's strike for Southampton at Brighton & Hove Albion, which was measured at 104.7km/h.
