Two Sick Goals

Here's a pair of bombs from this past weekend's EPL action.

The first one is from Michael Essien of Chelsea and the other is by Matt Taylor of Portsmouth. Unfortunately, it's US goalkeeper, Tim Howard, that gets caught daydreaming on the second goal.

Between the two, I like Essien's more. Taylor's has a bit of a "fluke factor" to it. Essien's was just pure power.

Thanks to Paul Searls for the links.

Not to mention the fact that Essien's came against Arsenal late when the Blues needed an equalizer. Unbelievable strike.
