The five most unique goals in the Premier League feature a single Manchester United strike
Tangi Ndombele He scored a ridiculous goal against Sheffield United on Sunday. It was as adorable as it was special, but it also wasn’t entirely unusual in Tottenham’s hilarious history. Premier League champion Robbie Kane managed it against Portsmouth in February 2005 without falling.
But it did lead us to think: What was the most unique goal scored in the Premier League? Which strike has no real resemblance to another? What has been the only one of its kind in its nearly 30-year history of competition?
Some shamefully mention first, goals that belong to similar subgroups with at least one other group. Dennis Bergkamp’s iconic hit against Newcastle is the poor man’s version of Ricardo Fuller against Aston Villa. Divock Origi against Everton was little more than Juul Mawen against Southampton, only with Jordan Pickford and Paul Jones alternating roles. Olivier Giroud and Henrikh Mkhitaryan cancel each other with scorpion kicks. Thomas Brolin, Tyrone Mings, and Marcus Alonso covered “The ball kicked against them in hilarious circumstances should be played by Nick Hancock”. Cesc Fabregas at Sunderland is one of the best versions of a player getting in the way of the shot that goes over the goalkeeper but there was a lot. Midway efforts are fun, but popular enough. Lots of goalkeepers have scored.
With that admin out, here are five Premier League goals with no comparison whatsoever. Until you tell us otherwise.
Jason Conde (Tottenham v Ipswich, August 1992)
Those who think Manchester United plunged Craig Forrest into the two most embarrassing experiences of his entire career must get past that 9-0 attack on Ipswich in March 1995 and West Ham’s 7-1 crush in April 2000. The truth is that arguably the first month of the league The budding Englishman has hit rock bottom in Al Kindi’s Adventures.
Not that everything was bad: Ipswich has already legalized Longest start without defeat from any side For the 1992/1993 season. They made early draws at Old Trafford and at home with Liverpool and Aston Villa – although their only victories in August and September came against Wimbledon.
It was on Portman’s road against Tottenham that Forrest in particular was cut down to size. The goalkeeper was stationed at the edge of his six-yard box as an Ipswich throw-in was directed at Chris Keumea near the center line. His flick behind Jason Duisel’s back seemed safe enough but the latent Jason Conde added a distinct danger to the situation. The midfielder burst into a sort of interference clearance flying in the air, and Sky Sports Super Sunday’s cameras could barely keep up as they flew over Forrest, whose shirt was blown off in the winds that had just betrayed him.
Martin Tyler said: “It’s weird.” “A complete coincidence, you might say.” Just a small amount.

Javier Hernandez (Manchester United v Stoke, October 2010)
When he visited Manchester United Stoke in the early stages of the 2010/11 season, they did so under a little cloud that, for once, cannot be attributed to the legendary tough weather surrounding the Britannia stadium.
They did not win outside the Premier League in their first four attempts, and faltered at Fulham, Everton, Bolton and Sunderland to give Chelsea a strong start. Wayne Rooney had recently committed to his future for the club after agitation and was unavailable due to injury. Their title defense, as they strive to win the 19th Championship to finally surpass Liverpool, was in danger.
Javier Hernandez would be picked the club’s MVP in his first season and shows like the one against Stoke showed why. He scored the late winner after Tonkai Sanli’s stunning equalizer, but only after the Mexican had opened the scoring brilliantly.
Nani fired a short free kick that Patrice Evra returned to the Portuguese, who had a cross pass to Nemanja Vidic in the back post. Mark Wilson is tasked with the simple task of observing a man about six inches shorter, but Hernandez proved size does not matter by jumping and twisting his body in the air and heading the ball back into Thomas Sorensen’s goal. Doing that at all was ridiculous. Doing so against Stoke was a profane wit.

Adama Diomande (Hal v Leicester, Aug 2016)
The Premier League champions never lost their opening match to defend their subsequent title. But then, Lester got used to ignoring the script in 2015/2016, so maybe everyone should have anticipated the mess in the post-credits scene as well.
Hull was offering tigers to slaughter for foxes in August 2016. Steve Bruce left the promoted club in July, and Mike Phelan was expected to make chicken salad from scraps and bones. Their pre-season ordeal was so great that Curtis Davis forced himself to laugh, fearing that half of the middle would turn into tears.

Few would have expected anyone in that picture to become a world champion, European and Premier League champion in three years. And even fewer of these may have considered one of these players to be able to score an overhead kick ostensibly with the help of an overhead kick.
Adama Diomandi was one of the nine selectees to make up the Hull summer squad and it was he who started their campaign in surprisingly bright conditions against Leicester. In the midst of first-half stoppage time, Davis shook the corner of Robert Snodgrass and was rescued by Casper Schmeichel, only for Diomandy and Abel Hernandez to launch enough bikes to make Katie Melowa jealous.
Both strikers raced in opposite directions as most of his teammates gathered around Hernandez, and Sky Sports’ suspension team likewise credited him with the goal. And only in replays did the realization begin: Hernandez hit the ball first with his toe before it burst from Diomandi’s studs into the net through the bar.
The Who scored Goal description says it all:
46 Curtis Davies tried to memorize (bottom to right, 18-yard square, head, from corner)
46 Casper Schmeichel rescues (diving, dodging danger)
46 Abel Hernandez missed the attempt (left, 6 yard square, main pass, left foot, corner)
Goal! Adama Diomandy scores with the help of Abel Hernandez (top to left, square 6 yards, foot right, corner)
Ahh, overhead missed attempting to assist the scroll key. This old chestnut.

Dublin Debt (Coventry v Newcastle, November 1997)
There is a shout for Nani goal against Tottenham In October 2010, but in the shy bastard complex, there is something ultimately more magical and unique about Coventry’s Dublin debt effort in a tie with Newcastle in November 1997.
Shay Given brilliantly at collecting a deep cross in the early stages of the match on Highfield Road. Standing on his feet, he presented the ball to Darren Peacock as if asking if he wanted to start a quick counterattack. The defender jogged away, apparently rejecting the offer, so Geffen bounced the ball once and rolled it out, unaware that Dublin was waiting for him and watching behind him after he had failed to contact the previous cross.
The attacker entered the field of play and put the ball into the empty net. Looking at the joke, he was the only Irishman who did not know where Dublin was at that point, explaining later that he left the ball only to make sure he didn’t break the six-second rule that was only introduced that summer in an effort to prevent goalkeepers from wasting time. Never has a goalkeeper let go of their fists without at least one peek behind them.
Back to … 1997.
He targeted a man, half-centered, day TV host, musician, and guy who made himself invisible … at least for Geffen’s tea.
It’s the popular Dublin light debt target. pic.twitter.com/1mn8IaaSLK

Darren Bennett (Sunderland v Liverpool, Oct 2009)
“If anyone knows this rule, that it should have been a drop ball, then you are the one,” it was perhaps the most quote Steve Bruce of all Steve Bruce quotes in the aftermath of Sunderland’s strange victory over Liverpool in October 2009. Black Cats is undeniable That the director would share the same opinion if Steven Gerrard had made an effort to stop a stray version of Sweeper! That one of the fans has been thrown at the stadium of light.
There was no precedent for referee Mike Jones to follow when Darren Bennett’s shot bounced off a beach ball and overtook the bewildering Baby Reina in the fifth minute. With an “outside agent” entering the field of play, the game had to be stopped but by the time Andy Reed’s cross veered its way to Bent, everyone was too busy trying to figure out if she had hit Glen Johnson or if she was a balloon instead From standing up.
It will never be repeated just because it happened in the first place; Still so unforgettable that it ensured that a generation of ardent Liverpool supporters, happiest Sunderland fans, gloating fans and budding officials instinctively knew which rule would rule it out instantly, much to the dismay of steadfast citizen Steve Bruce and beach ball owner Callum Campbell.
