While Liverpool suffered a shock defeat, Roberto Firmino had something to smile about as his second goal was brilliantly taken. After chesting the ball down on the penalty spot, the Brazilian proceeded to strike it wonderfully on the half volley.

Wayne Rooney (Stoke City vs MANCHESTER UNITED)

While Wayne Rooney's equaliser for Manchester United during their clash with Stoke City stole the headlines due to its significance - the Englishman became the club's all-time leading goalscorer with the strike - it deserved as much attention for how stunning a free-kick it actually was. 

Chris Brunt (WEST BROM vs Sunderland)

Of all the strikes in the top five, none were arguably as sweetly hit as Chris Brunt's goal in West Brom's win over Sunderland. After Nacer Chadli had hit the bar, the Northern Irishman met the ball near the edge of the area with a sumptuous volley that threatened to burst the net.

James Ward Prowse (SOUTHAMPTON vs Leicester City)

While the previous entries make the list due to the brilliant skill of individuals, James Ward Prowse's strike for Southampton against Leicester earns a place on the shortlist due to the excellent team move that led to the midfielder scoring from 18 yards. 

Darren Fletcher (WEST BROM vs Sunderland)

Darren Fletcher took advantage of some lazy marking from the Sunderland defence to score a wonderful goal for the Baggies. With his back to goal, the midfielder chested the ball to his side before unleashing a vicious volley into the net that a striker would have been proud of. 

Those are the contenders, so now is your chance to vote. The results will be announced on Tuesday.
