Defoe’s wonder goal
Jermain Defoe has won the Premier League Goal of the Month for December for his strike against Crystal Palace.
The goal came in a game where Christian Benteke missed a 93rd-minute penalty as Palace were held to a dramatic 2-2 draw by Bournemouth.
Defoe’s equaliser came after the break with a stunning looped half-volley from an acute angle after Lewis Cook’s long ball.
It was only his third goal for Bournemouth this season, but his manager Eddie Howe was full of praise for what he described as a “top-class” finish.
Up against some tough competition, including Gylfi Sigurdsson and Steven Defour, Defoe’s strike came out on top.
