There were just the four Premier League games that took place in Gameweek 30, but that didn't stop a few scorching goals burning nets up and down the land.

Friday night got us underway with some excellent drama at the Molineux, while there other fine strikes to be seen at Villa Park and the King Power Stadium.

Here's a look at the best Premier League goals from the weekend.


1. Luke Ayling vs Wolves

Perhaps not the most aesthetically pleasing goal you'll see this season, but hey, we all appreciate a good set of limbs in the away end, don't we?

Leeds had drawn level at 2-2 having gone two goals behind, with their comeback sealed by Luke Ayling's dramatic winner in injury time.

It was just his 15th goal in almost 500 club appearances, so it's understandable that the celebration still needs some work.


2. Bukayo Saka vs Aston Villa

Arsenal just keep chugging along in their pursuit of a top four spot, and their latest 1-0 win came courtesy of Bukayo Saka's cool finish at Aston Villa.

The England forward's snapshot beat the outstretched Emiliano Martinez, bringing up the Gunners' 2000th Premier League goal in the process.

It's Saka's best goalscoring season in the Premier League and he only needs one more to bring up double figures.


3. Timothy Castagne vs Brentford

Leicester vs Brentford was a game of epic goals, so much so that we're leaning on it heavily this week by including all three strikes.

The first was an important one for Timothy Castagne, the Foxes wing back who has been in and out of their starting XI due to injury.

The Belgian cut inside from the left and sent a screamer into the top corner, setting Leicester on their way.


4. James Maddison vs Brentford

Leicester soon went 2-0 up and it was a trademark James Maddison free kick that gave them that advantage.

The midfielder whizzed an effort up and over Brentford's wall and into the top corner, leaving Bees goalie David Raya stranded and kicking another ball out of his net.

Maddison has hit a rich vein of form recently, with this strike being his eighth in the Premier League this season.


5. Yoane Wissa vs Leicester

Rounding off the ding-dong at the King Power Stadium is Brentford's consolation via Yoane Wissa.

The 25-year-old made room for himself on the edge of the box from Bryan Mbeumo's pass and rifled a shot past Kasper Schmeichel, who had been excellent in the Foxes goal.

Brentford missed Christian Eriksen's creativity on Sunday and when they did show their attacking teeth, it came just a tad too late.


6. Son Heung-min vs West Ham

The pass. The run. The step overs. The goal. Lovely stuff.

Harry Kane and Son Heung-min extended their combination record by two in Tottenham's 3-1 victory over West Ham. The second was simplicity at its finest, but the first was excellently crafted.

A Rodrigo Bentancur found Kane in space, and the England captain picked out Son with composure for his strike partner to finish beyond Lukasz Fabianski.
