Eberechi Eze Scores Incredible Goal After Dribbling From Own Half

Eberechi Eze has enjoyed life in the Premier League since joining Crystal Palace in the summer, and his goal against Sheffield United on Saturday was incredible proof of this.

The winger glided through the Blades' midfield and defence, taking the ball from his own half to the back of the opposition net, to put the Eagles 2-0 ahead just before half time.

Chris Wilder must have been looking on in shock as his struggling side only managed to try and tackle the 22-year-old twice in that run - both of which Eze easily evaded.

Eze finished off the fine run with a cool finish from the edge of the area, placing it into the far bottom corner.

The strike put Roy Hodgson's side two goals ahead of the winless Sheffield United, with Jeffrey Schlupp capitalising on a fortunate deflection from Christian Benteke's pass to open the scoring early on.

Eze has only one goal and two assists in his 14 Premier League appearances before today, but that doesn't tell the story of how he has played in that time. Since arriving at Selhurst Park from Queens Park Rangers in the summer, the England Under-21's ace has wowed fans with his flair and confidence despite his young age.

This has helped Palace to look relatively safe from relegation at the moment. They are sitting in 12th place, 11 points ahead of the relegation spots - albeit having played more games than many teams below them.
