Spectacular goals lighting up Anfield

We’re not even into October yet but already Liverpool have five goals worthy of winning any goal of the month, or even goal of the season, vote.

John Arne Riise set the tone with his run and finish in the 2-1 win over Chelsea at the Millennium Stadium in the curtain raiser to the season. The Norweigan then followed that up with an arguably more impressive goal from all of 30 yards last weekend in the 3-0 win over Spurs. His shot from the centre glided through the air, seemingly not changing course and arrowing into England number 1 Paul Robinson’s goal.

The first home game of the season saw Daniel Agger claim his first goal for the club as the centre back marched forward against West Ham and hit an unstoppable swerving shot into the top corner of the Kop goal with his left foot.

Then we had Xabi Alonso and his annual unique entry for goal of the season – from inside his own half! The Spaniard’s 70 yard lob of Steve Harper against Newcastle, albeit with the keeper slipping as he ran back, will live long in the memory of Reds fans and the technique and vision cannot be questioned.

And this week Peter Crouch put himself into the frame with a mighty impressive and acrobatic goal in the win over Gala – an overhead kick from 14 yards direct from a Steve Finnan cross went back upon itself and into the bottom corner.

Added to them five ‘blockbusters’ are Dirk Kuyt’s thunderous finish against Spurs and Crouch’s well worked goal against West Ham. It’s certainly shaping up to be an entertaining season for the Reds!

Vote for you favourite goal in the new poll on the left side of the site.

The results of our last poll saw fans vote for Jamie Carragher and Daniel Agger as the preferred centre back partnership.
