Man United legend Scholes or Chelsea hero Drogba? The best ever Goal of the Month competition

During their years at Manchester United and Chelsea, Paul Scholes and Didier Drogba scored plenty of wonderful goals.

There was a time that, if Scholes picked the ball up on the edge of the area, you know he was about to score.

And Drogba was one of the best Premier League strikers we’ve ever seen, a tormentor of defenders and goalkeepers under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.


And sifting through the archives (of YouTube), we stumbled upon a Goal of the Month competition so wonderful, that we have no idea who we’d crown the winner.

Scholes smashes one of his more famous bangers, with a volley against Aston Villa. And Drogba’s swivel-and-volley against Everton was simply exceptional.

But it’s not just those two you have to choose from. Michael Essien’s howitzer against Arsenal is in there, Tom Huddlestone’s half-volley against Manchester City makes a cameo and Matt Taylor’s disgustingly good volley against Bolton gets the nod.

Watch the video and try to decide the best goal. You’ll struggle, we promise.
