Top 5 goals from the Premier League Weekend
1. Lacazette's equalizer against Liverpool
Every once in a while a 'big game' delivers. This was definitely one of those occasions. Milner had put the Reds ahead, slightly against the run of play, in the 61st minute. Then in the 82nd minute, and testament to how much more character Arsenal is showing under Emre, Lacazette evades an Alisson tackle before twisting around and curling it across goal. It was a cool, collected finish in a hugely important game. Lacazette has had an excellent season so far, and this goal was evidence that the Frenchman can also deliver in the big games... and in style.
2. Richarlison's second against Brighton
Another in-form player takes second spot this weekend. The Brazilian having scored earlier in the game, intercepts the ball just past the halfway line. Instead of taking time to compose himself, he was able to use his first touch to send it round the central defender as he continued in the other direction. After he bamboozled the defender he collects the ball, rounds the keeper and slides it into the bottom left. What a signing he has been this season and what a cool finish to earn Everton a 3-1 win over Brighton.
3. Newcastle score and win!
A little context is needed here. This is Newcastle's first win in eleven games. It also lifts them from last placed to just outside the relegation zone. The goal itself was an improvised glancing header from a free kick that was dipping too low and would have been easily picked up by Watford's keeper. It was Perez who got the goal that has given a hapless Newcastle some hope.
4. Richarlison's first against Brighton
It's the same man again, but this time it was a team goal that begun with a Brighton corner. A string of passes from Bernard and Sigurdsson provide Richarlison with the ball in the box. He sweeps in his finish with one fluid movement, it was a great finish but the build up play and the delightfully weighted assist from the Icelander were what made it special.
5. Lamela can't stop scoring
Lamela has been an unlikely goalscorer this season, with six goals to his name so far and a better goal to minute ratio than Harry Kane. This time Son plays it to him at an awkward height, he controls it on his chest and with his knee before nutmegging Wolves' keeper. It was a lovely finish from the rejuvenated Argentinian.
