Son Heung-min’s solo strike against Burnley voted as best Premier League goal of all time
Son Heung-Min’s solo stunner against Burnley has been voted as the best Premier League goal of all time by fans, in a poll conducted by Sky Sports.
The goal in question came in December last year when our club hosted the Clarets at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Son, starting his own half, slalomed past almost every Burnley player before finishing past the Clarets’ goalkeeper.
The 27-year-old’s pace, skill, composure and finishing were all on full display in that moment. And, it is a goal that will be etched in the minds of each and every Tottenham fan for a long, long time.
Recently voted as the goal of the season by The Athletic, Son’s strike has now also been voted as the Best Premier League goal of all time.
In a poll conducted by Sky Sports, Son’s strike emerged as the clear winner with 26% of votes. The South Korean international’s goal was chosen ahead of Wayne Rooney’s spectacular bicycle kick for Manchester United against Manchester City.
There were many other great goals in contention such as, Luis Suarez’s wonder strike against Norwich, Papiss Cisse’s long-range stunner against Chelsea. However, it is Son’s strike that was voted as the best ever goal scored in the Premier League.

There may have been a case of short-term memory bias which resulted in such a majority. But there is no denying that the strike from Sonny was one of the best ever goals scored.
The 27-year-old is currently away on a mandatory three-week military service in South Korea. He is likely to miss the start of full-team training next month.
