31 October: Cesc scores the ultimate goal against Tottenham

The video of this most amazing goal straight from a Tottenham kick off comes courtesy of Facebook – just click on the link below for the entire sequence from kick off to goal  – in around five seconds.

Before the game the league table looked like this…


Team P W D L F A GD Pts
1 Chelsea 10 8 0 2 24 8 16 24
2 Manchester United 10 7 1 2 21 11 10 22
3 Arsenal 9 6 1 2 29 13 16 19
4 Tottenham Hotspur 10 6 1 3 21 14 7 19


First we have the van Persie goal on 42 minutes.

Then Tottenham kick off  in a lazy, undisciplined manner, and Cesc alert as ever gets the ball back for Arsenal, beats the entire Tottenham defence and scores.


Do watch the whole video – it is worth it.
