Moussa Diaby's stunning strike for Aston Villa against Wolverhampton Wanderers has won the Oracle Most Powerful Goal award. 

Diaby, Oracle Most Powerful Goal

An Aston Villa cross was deflected to the edge of the box, where Diaby ran onto the ball and smashed a shot past four Wolves defenders and their goalkeeper. It was the opening goal of a 2-0 win that maintained Aston Villa's position in the top four heading into April.

Diaby's shot was measured by Oracle, the Premier League's official cloud provider, to have an average speed of 109.84 km/h between the ball leaving his boot and crossing the goalline. 

That makes it the fastest average speed from all the goals scored from outside the box in 2023/24 without a deflection off another player.
