Van Persie dominates Manchester United goal of the season shortlist

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United have announced the ten goal short list for this years Goal of the Season award.

Robin van Persie unsurprisingly leads the way in nominations with four of his efforts making the top ten short list with Rafael his closest competitor with two.

It has certainly been a season where United have been treated to some scorching goals – from van Persie’s outrageously good volley against Aston Villa to Kagawa’s finesse finish against Norwich.

My vote goes to van Persie’s volley against Aston Villa. There aren’t many harder techniques to master than a first time volley over the shoulder and to do it on the run from a 40 yard pass in the title clinching game was just magnificent.


Here is the list in full. You can place your vote here.

Van Persie vs Fulham, Powell vs Wigan, Rafael vs Liverpool, Van Persie vs CFR Cluj (2nd), Cleverley vs Newcastle

Van Persie vs West Ham, Rafael vs QPR, Kagawa vs Norwich (2nd), Rooney vs Norwich, Van Persie vs Aston Villa (2nd)
