If there was ever a week to return with another Goals post it’s this one. Week 22 was chock full of insane strikes, dramatic results, and broken records. I even included both Liverpool goals (you’re welcome, Sotak). Back in a big way, here are the top goals of the weekend. Plus a couple fantastic finishes from around the world, and a neat compilation of skill moves in silky slow motion from La Liga.

Rooney sinks an unbelievable stoppage time free kick (90’+ 4’) to not only save a point but also pass Sir Bobby Charlton as Manchester United’s all-time club scoring leader with 250 goals.
Alexis Sanchez (Arsenal) vs. Burnley (2-1)
Cool as a cucumber, the Chilean feathers in the winner (90’+7’) after Arsenal receive a penalty in the box.
Diego Costa (Chelsea) vs. Hull City (1-0)
Costa receives a gift from Victor Moses and slots in his 15th goal of the season (45’+7’) to break the scoreless draw.
