10) Uroš Đurđević – Lovely footwork in the area to evade the Ajax defenders and then a powerful finish past Cillessen.

9) Jeffrey Sarpong – Worked some space with a step-over before unleashing an unstoppable drive into the top corner with his weaker left foot.

8) Anass Achabar – Beautiful volley into the corner. A very difficult technique to volley the ball over the shoulder into the opposite corner of the goal. A very important goal for Achabar personally, to help him force his way into the Feyenoord team.

7) Jeff Stans – Great first touch from the long ball and a fantastic volley.

6) Aron Jóhannsson – Very recent goal from the Icelander. Superb strike of the ball from 35 yards!

5) Sam Larsson – Terrific goal from Heerenveen. Started with a nutmeg from Mark Uth, followed by a rabona cross from Joey van den Berg and finished by the Swede Larsson.

4) Colin Kazim-Richards – Another great strike in this top 10. With his back to goal, the Turk turned on the ball and dug out a swerving shot that flew into the top corner.

3) Simon Poulsen – Tricked his way past a few ADO players down AZ’s left-hand side and unleashed a venomous shot that bounced in off the woodwork.

2) Ricardo van Rhijn – An early season wonder goal from the Ajax right-back. The best free-kick seen this season which left Netherlands international goalkeeper Kenneth Vermeer rooted to the spot.

1) Joshua Brenet – Deserved winner of the goal of the season. After a corner is cleared away for PSV, Brenet picks up the ball and blasts a half-volley past a helpless Warner Hahn.
