THWACK! Charlie Daniels scores 'greatest ever' Premier League goal vs Man City
What the actual fuck did we just see? There seemed to be little trouble. Manchester City had done well to deal with a speculative Bournemouth attack down the right flank. Their captain Vincent Kompany had assuredly headed away a cross from Dan Gosling.
The loose ball dropped towards Charlie Daniels, standing a yard or two outside the area on the left side. The Cherries defender would surely take a moment to control possession and loft another cross into the visitors' congested six-yard box.
But no, instead the experienced defender decided to throw caution to the wind and absolutely twat the ball with all his might. It exploded off his laces and smashed into the goal like a laser-guided missile. Unstoppable. incredible. Out-fucking-standing.
Ederson had no chance of stopping it. It was hit so hard and so pure. Always rising and pinging off the woodwork. A goal crafted from the heavens. Sadly due to Premier League rules we're not allowed to show you video footage, but this gives you an idea...
The crowd went wild. Social media lost it. Definitely one of the greatest strikes in Premier League history. BOSH!
