Van der Vaart wins Goal of the Week

Tottenham star Rafael van der Vaart has won our coveted Premier League Goal of the Week award.


The Netherlands international was on target in a 3-1 win over Swansea as he produced an accomplished finish from a loose ball in the box.

His effort at White Hart Lane claimed 29 per cent of the vote among Eurosport-Yahoo! readers.

In a very tight poll, Papiss Cisse's lovely header for Newcastle against Liverpool came second, while Sebastian Larsson's first goal in Sunderland's 3-3 draw with Manchester City came third.
