Nothing generates debate in football like a compilation of outstanding goals. From the armchair fan to the die-hard season ticket holder, everyone has an opinion on what makes a great goal, and the Premier League has seen some outrageous strikes since its inception.
19 years have passed since the Premier League's formation in 1992, and barely a week goes by without somebody smashing home a “Goal of the Season” candidate. That's a lot of great goals to sift through, and the volume is such that some of 2010-11's finest (Wayne Rooney's overhead kick, anyone?) are barely an afterthought. The competition might not always guarantee Europe's most entertaining football, but it does guarantee great goals.
From Dalian Atkinson and Tony Yeboah to Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo, the Premier League has been blessed with talent capable of stunning “wow” moments since day one. Tactical trends and technical innovations come and go, but these goals will live forever.
Here are, in this writer's humble opinion, the 20 greatest Premier League goals of all-time.
