Kovacic volley shortlisted for Premier League Goal of the Season

Mateo Kovacic’s brilliant volley against Liverpool has been nominated for the Premier League’s Goal of the Season award.

The Croatian international won January’s monthly goal award for his stunning strike at Stamford Bridge, an effort that sparked our dramatic fightback against the Reds at the turn of the calendar year.

With the Blues trailing by two goals shortly before the break, Kovacic acted instinctively when goalkeeper Caoimhin Kelleher punched Marcos Alonso’s free-kick away from under the crossbar.

Utilising flawless technique, the midfielder drifted back to meet the dropping ball before unleashing a perfect looping volley, which cleared a crowded penalty area before bouncing in off the inside of the right-hand post.
