There’s a reason the Premier League is widely considered the best league in the world – and that reason is that it attracts the biggest talent on the planet. With that talent comes some truly wonderful performances – but most tangible of all, some wonderfully audacious attempts at goal. A player can look a tad silly if a 30-yard effort skews wide, but all it takes it one of these thunderous efforts to hit the back of the net, and we’ve instantly got a club hero.

Distance, pace and power are all the ingredients needed to score a truly spectacular long-range effort and the Premier League has seen a fair few over the years. Other long-range efforts require more finesse and vision, but still stand up as equally spectacular. Below are my top fifteen long-range efforts in the history of the Premier League – so buckle up and enjoy!
