Match Of The Day Name The Premier League Goal Of The Season

Son Heung-min's incredible solo effort against Burnley back in December was voted as Match of the Day's Goal of the Season on Sunday night.

The Premier League' Goal of the Season award is always handed out by the BBC's weekly highlights show and as the curtain came down on the season on Sunday it was time for Gary Lineker, Ian Wright and Alan Shearer to pick the winner.

First the top ten was put to a public vote and included Kevin de Bruyne's strike against Norwich on the final day, as City rumped to a 5-0 win.


De Bruyne did finish in the top three in the voting, but with his goal against Newcastle earlier in the season, and he was joined by Anthony Martial's dinked finish against Watford and Son's goal against Burnley, which came in a 5-0 win.

Both Wright and Shearer went for Son's goal which meant Lineker didn't have to choose, although it's likely the host would have gone the same way.


It was certainly a game where Sean Dyche's men were more obliging in defence than usual and the South Korean was helped by the opposition but it didn't take away from his slaloming run from inside his own area.

The award ends a less than usual season for Son, and everyone for that matter, an arm injury earlier this year was set to rule him out for most of the rest of the season but the Covid-19 break allowed him to come back in time.

Not only that but during the time apart from the club he returned to South Korea to take part in his three week national service in the army.



Spurs ended their season, which is set to be shown warts and all in an Amazon documentary, with a 1-1 draw away to Crystal Palace.

The point meant they finished in sixth place, above Wolves on goal difference, and means they will play in the Europa League next season, unless Arsenal win the FA Cup and Nuno Espirito Santo's side win this season's Europa in August.
