Ayoze Perez has been nominated for Premier League goal of the week, after his cracking effort against Arsenal.

This made it three goals in three games for the man from Tenerife, having scored the winner against both Huddersfield and Leicester.

He doesn’t score a lot of goals but when he does, they tend to be pretty decent.

Sky Sports have chosen six goals from the weekend action and there is tough competition.

The other five the Newcastle man is up against, include Arsenal’s smart opening goal when Aubameyang and Lacazette combined.

However, I know I might be biased but…I think the Perez goal was higher quality.

A superb Shelvey pass, Gayle doing really well to bring it down and lay it off to Yedlin, who then whipped in the perfect cross that was by an even better finish.

To vote for the Ayoze Perez goal (and/or to see all six strikes) go here, the early voting actually sees the Ayoze Perez goal in second place at the moment, but he needs a bit of help to win.

Mo Salah currently has 80% of the vote, whilst Ayoze Perez is next best with 8%.

Andre Ayew – SWANSEA v Everton (2%)

Andy Carroll – WEST HAM v Stoke (2%)

Olivier Giroud (1st) – Southampton v CHELSEA (4%)

Alexandre Lacazette – Newcastle v ARSENAL (3%)

Ayoze Perez – NEWCASTLE v Arsenal (8%)

Mohamed Salah – LIVERPOOL v Bournemouth (80%)

    Not sure when exactly this article was posted but it doesn`t really matter. 80% against 8% – there`s a slight chance Salah is going to win anyway! It doesnt matter – it was a great goal from start to finish and put us on the way to three points and a cocker knee nose-rubbing. I notice Jonathon didn`t do the player ratings this week. Has he gone into rehab after Ayoze`s recent performances or has MonkSatan knee-capped him through the letterbox?

      Well taken goal but I prefered Ritchey’s goal because of the build up, determination, and the cheek of the deft backheel by Perez smacked home.

        Two good goals – Perez central to both!

    You won’t see many better than Ayoze’s the way he took it was first class…surprised the defender and the keeper, along with everybody in the place, but he knew exactly where it was going…Salah’s back header wasn’t bad, but Perez’s flick ’round the corner’ was better!!!

    Shelvey’s pass was outrageous. The height on it, but still with backspin and draw. It was more like a golf shot. Or a ‘Hail Mary’.
    Watching West Ham try to score against Stoke last night I was struck by how wasteful they were with good possession in good positions. So many opportunities that went nowhere.
    We have become accustomed now, but Rafa has slowly made us ruthlessly efficient. For example, 25% possession, 6 shots, 4 on target, 2 goals. Very typical stats for us nowadays. Very little waste.
    He’s not only a genius, he’s green!
