Yoosof Farah@@YoosofFarahSenior Writer IIINovember 8, 2008

There may be four more games to play tomorrow, but already in the six games that have been played I have seen several fantastic goals, more so than usual. And there has been so many it has prompted me write my top five goals for this weekend in the EPL. I feel there won't be any better goals in the remaining four matches, but if there is, I will write a part two to this article, or edit this current article.

So, here are my top five goals from Matchday 12 in the Barclay's Premier League:


5) Samir Nasri - Arsenal (first goal)

The young Frenchman got the ball rolling on a fantastic encounter between Arsenal and Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium. After teeing himself up on the edge of the box, the midfielder hit a beautifully struck volley past Edwin Van der Sar via a deflection off Gary Neville.


4) Louis Saha - Everton

The second of the game for the Frenchman. After being invited to shoot by the West Ham players, Saha took advantage brilliantly, by curling a fantastic low effort past Robert Green and into the bottom corner from around 25 yards out.


3) Samir Nasri - Arsenal (second goal)

A fantastic game, a fantastic win for Arsenal, and another fantastic goal for man of the match Samir Nasri. After Francesc Fabregas drew in the United defenders, the Spaniard released the ball to the open Nasri, who took advantage and drilled a fantastic shot past Van der Sar from just outside the box.


2) Rafael Da Silva - Manchester United

So many great goals in another great game for the EPL. This game was a fantastic advertisement for the Premier League, and so was young Brazilian Rafael's goal. It was a tremendous finish by the teenager, who teed himself up to hit a wonderful volley, that swerved it's way past the helpless Lukas Fabianski and into the back of the Arsenal net.


1) Nadir Belhadj - Portsmouth

It will be a moment to savour for the Algerian defender. The full-back, on loan at Portsmouth from RC Lens, opened up his Portsmouth account in emphatic style. After collecting a Niko Kranjcar pass, Belhadj smashed home a beautiful shot from 25 yards that swerved it's way past Craig Gordon and into the back of the net.


There are several more goals that I would like to include, but I can only do five! If more goals are scored tomorrow, then a part two to this article could well be on it's way! Anyway, these are my top five goals in Matchday 12 of the EPL so far, please feel free to agree or disagree and leave your opinion!
