Shearer's Top 5 goals: My chip had some finesse

7 Sep 2018

Alan Shearer starts off his selection of favourite PL goals with a skilful goal for Blackburn v Norwich

Alan Shearer is picking his five favourite goals from the record 260 he scored in the Premier League.

BLB 7-1 NOR, 1992/93

The first goal on the shortlist is a Shearer chip for Blackburn Rovers against Norwich City.

Shearer singles it out because, for a man associated with headers and powerful strikes, this goal possessed a deft touch and skill. 

"We were winning the game comfortably," he says in the video above. "I am full of confidence and try my luck.

"The difference between this goal and the other four we'll see is that this one shows a little bit more finesse.

"Tim Sherwood always ribs me, saying the ball hit a little bit of a bobble, but it didn't. 

"It was meant."
