We've been treated to some pretty amazing goals this weekend.

Luis Suarez's goal rightfully takes home first place this weekend, but Kyle Walker's rocket of a free kick would've likely been selected as goal of the week on any other weekend.

Tottenham were already up 1-0 against Blackburn prior to the goal, but were searching for the second goal to seal the victory and increase the team's goal differential.

Walker provided it with style.

From 35 yards out, Walker used all the power in his right foot to blast his free kick around the wall and into the top right-hand corner.

It was reminiscent of Walker's other goal this season, his long-distance winner against Arsenal in the first North London derby of the season.

Surprisingly, despite Gareth Bale and Rafael van der Vaart's reputations as free kick experts, that was Tottenham's first free kick goal of the season, according to Opta Sports:

The result stopped Tottenham's slide down the table, and allows Tottenham to move back up to fourth place ahead of Newcastle on goal differential and ahead of Chelsea by a single point.
