5. DELIGHTFUL DE BRUYNE, JUBILANT JESUS

Man City humbled Aston Villa 6-1 on Sunday, with Sergio Aguero bagging a hat-trick. However, the best goal of the game was arguably scored by Gabriel Jesus thanks to another wonderous assist from Kevin De Bruyne. The Belgian collects possession down the right flank before whipping a perfect cross forward and around the Villa defence to the back post, where Jesus is positioned to coolly place a left-footed strike back across goal into the bottom right corner.

4. MAGNIFICENT MBOCK

Brest were already 3-2 up against Toulouse when Hiang'a Mbock decided to try his luck from distance, and although there is certainly a hit-and-hope element to this goal, while the keeper should do better, too, it is still a hell of a strike. After receiving the ball in midfield, the 20-year-old unleashes a ferocious, dipping shot which bounces in off the crossbar, with the goalkeeper allowing it to loop right over his head.

3. ALMIR-ON FIRE

After taking so long to find the back of the net for Newcastle, Miguel Almiron can't stop scoring now! Well, he scored against Wolves, at least, and it was a beauty. The build-up play was superb as Dwight Gayle backed into his marker before cleverly laying into the path of his team-mate, who opens up his boot to arrow a strike into the top right corner, with the goalkeeper left with no chance.

2. FABIO CLASS IS PERMANENT

36-year-old Fabio Quagliarella continues to prove that, like a fine wine, he gets better with age. This weekend against Brescia he scored two goals - one from the penalty spot and the fifth goal for the home side. It came in the 92nd minute when he expertly beat the opposition offisde trap to run through on goal, hold off the attention of the defender, before lobbing a beautiful finish over the goalkeeper.

1. BRAVO, CHARBONNIER

In the same match as Mbock's piledriver, Gaetan Charbonnier scored an ever better goal, and the best goal of the week. Irvin Cardona drives down the right flank at pace before standing a cross up to the back post for his team-mate, who keeps his eye on the ball all the way before catching a sweet right-footed volley into the top corner, twisting his body awkwardly to make the connection.
