16: Xabi Alonso vs Newcastle

Back to the top 25 goals of the 2006/07 season!

The only reason why the goal isn't higher up the chart is because the goalkeeper then, Steve Harper, fumbled and was doing push-ups during the goal. But what technique from the Spanish playmaker. Anyone who plays football knows how difficult it is to actually hit the target, without even mentioning from the halfway line!

Although the goalkeeper's mistake is deemed the reason why Alonso scored, take nothing away from him. He hit the target from so far out and how many times have we seen players scoring and celebrating with the goalkeepers first!

It's probably because he scored it too far away from the front line.
