6 of the Best Moments From the Premier League Weekend

Next0 / 6

The Premier League signed off before the international break with another two days of great action.

Chelsea and Southampton continued to pull away at the top, while Liverpool and Manchester City were once more left questioning how things have gone so wrong, so quickly. Swansea executed a shock against Arsenal and even Burnley managed a first win.

Here's a look at six of the best moments from the weekend action in the Premier League.

6. Best Moment of Utter Relief

Burnley are bottom of the table and have only scored six goals all season, but at least now they've finally managed a first win. It's still going to be a season-long fight against relegation, but a huge weight has finally been lifted.

5. Best Blush-Saving Moment

When Joe Hart fluffed a free-kick straight to Charlie Austin, the QPR forward proceeded to slot the ball home and every Manchester City fan was left with their head in their hands.

However, Hart's blushes were saved by the eagle-eye officials who had spotted that he'd actually kicked the ball twice.

4. Best First Touch

Sergio Aguero's individual display earned Manchester City a perhaps undeserved point against QPR in Saturday's evening kickoff. His second goal to rescue the 2-2 draw was special enough, but the first touch to take the ball out of the sky in the build up to his first was something else.

3. Best Free-Kick

Gylfi Sigurdsson has been one of the Premier League's best players so far this season. He has quite a reputation when it comes to free-kicks as well, so when the Icelandic star put one in the top corner against Arsenal it wasn't even all that surprising.

2. Best Goal

The quickest way a Newcastle striker can reach the heart of a Geordie football fan is by scoring goals and lots of them.

Young Ayoze Perez has done exactly that of late and this exquisite flick against West Brom will have fans drooling for a long time.

1. Most Unfortunate Moment

Sitting behind the goal at any game can be dangerous, especially if there's a striker who's recently misplaced his shooting.

Yaya Toure's usually a bit more reliable, but this curling effort against QPR caught a small child full in the face - head snapping back and everything. In fairness to the Ivorian though, he soon apologised and sent her a signed shirt.
