Goals are the lifeblood of football. Sure tackles, tricks and tantrums are part of the game's appeal, but watching the net bulge after a spectacular effort is what keeps people glued to their seats or television sets.
The Premier League began play in the 1992-93 season. Counting up until the 2012-13 campaign, 21,651 goals have been scored.
Some own goals, some tap-ins, some offside and some didn't even cross the line; but there too have been undoubted moments of sheer brilliance and jaw-dropping awe—they're moments of splendor which keep us watching, writing and chanting every match week.
Here are the top 15 moments Premier League goal scorers have offered us thus far.
