Amongst the 25 goals at the weekend there were some memorable strikes.

Top 5 Goals

And this season we're letting you have your say about which goal you think was the pick of the bunch.

So sit back and enjoy the goals (video will start automatically in the picture box - UK only), then click in the box on the right of the homepage to vote for the best strike of the weekend. We'll publish the results of the poll later this week.

The goals, in no particular order, are:

Jermain Defoe (Tottenham) v West Brom: Defoe put Tottenham 2-1 in front when a neat flick inside from Emmanuel Adebayor sent the England striker bombing through the centre of the pitch. West Brom's defenders backed off him, and he accepted their invitation with a low drive from 18 yards that flew into the top corner.

Ruben Rochina (Blackburn) v Stoke City: Rochina added a touch of class to an otherwise rugged affair when he lashed a left-footed strike into the near top corner from the edge of the box with four minutes remaining although it was a mere consolation for the visitors.

Juan Mata (Chelsea) v Wolves: As the opening 45 minutes came to a close Mata got the goal his first half performance deserved to put the game beyond doubt. The Spanish international made a perfect connection with Ashley Cole's cross from the left to send a rising volley into the roof of the Wolves net.

Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea) v Wolves: Juan Mata skipped past a cumbersome George Elokobi, before sliding the ball across the box to a loping Sturridge, who nipped in ahead of his marker to divert the ball into the back of the net.

Apostolos Vellios (Everton) v Bolton: Great work down the right from Seamus Coleman saw him not only keep the ball in play but his stretching foot also crossed for Vellios to sidefoot calmly into the net to clinch Everton a win at Bolton.
