The Premier League has picked Andros Townsend’s strike for Crystal Palace against Manchester City in December as the official Goal of the Season.
Townsend’s stunning strike helped Palace to a shock 3-2 win over the champions.
“We got a free-kick and the ball’s dropped out of the air.
“I just thought, ‘Yeah, it’s sat up perfectly, I’m going to hit this’.
“I didn’t really know how good a goal it was. Everyone was saying, ‘It was incredible, it was the best goal I’ve ever seen’.
“I just thought it was a volley from outside the box and it’s not until I watched it back, then I thought, ‘Oh wow, maybe that is a bit special,” Townsend said while explaining the goal to Sky Sports.
