Top 4 Premier League Long-Range Golazo’s

Following Victor Wanyama’s great long-range effort for in-form Southampton against Hull City in the Premier League at the weekend, Damien Morris selects his top four long-range efforts in the history of the Premier League.

4. Wayne Rooney – Manchester United vs West Ham 2013/14 season

What an amazing goal this is from the Manchester United striker in which he lobbed a shot from just past the half-way line over the stranded West Ham goalkeeper Adrian. It helped Manchester United record a crucial win in East London.


3. Xabi Alonso – Liverpool v Newcastle 2006/07

What a goal this is from the Spanish international who lobbed Newcastle goalkeeper Steve Harper from all of 70 yards, which helped Liverpool seal a 2-0 win over Newcastle at Anfield.


2. Maynor Figueroa – Wigan Athletic vs Stoke 2009/10 season

This is another fantastic goal in which he lobbed Stoke goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen from his own half-way line, which helped Wigan get a priceless point at Stoke.


1. David Beckham – Manchester United vs Wimbledon 1996/97 season

This is still one of Beckham’s most talked about goals these days in which he lobbed Wimbledon goalkeeper Neil Sullivan just behind the half-way line to seal a convincing 3-0 win over Wimbledon on the opening day of that season.
