It’s all going on at West Brom at the moment.
Their week away in Barcelona was an absolute shambles for various reasons, but they’re back in action today against Southampton in the FA Cup.
But after 56 minutes, the Baggies were 2-0 down against their fellow Premier League strugglers, thanks to goals from Wesley Hoedt and Dusan Tadic.
But they pulled one back thanks to an ab-so-lute beauty of a goal from Solomon Rondon.
The Venezuelan, who’s been criticised by some fans this season for his disappointing return of just four goals in the league, fired a first-time volley from Grzegorz Krychowiak’s 50-yard ball, leaving Saints goalkeeper Alex McCarthy no chance.
Take a look.
Recognise that goal somewhere?
We don’t know about you, but it had a certain Robin Van Persie flavour to it.
The Dutchman, back when he played for Manchester United, famously hit a very similar volley against Aston Villa in a 3-0 win that helped the Red Devils seal their 20th league title back in April 2013.
The strike was later voted the best ever goal of the Premier League era at a ‘Legends of Football’ event in 2016.
Weren’t bad, was it?
- Robin van Persie’s first Feyenoord goal in 14 years was a vintage classic
- Pep Guardiola has nearly outspent Alex Ferguson’s entire reign at Man United
- Robin van Persie handed nostalgic number after returning to Feyenoord
