Name: Fabio Borini
Goal: SUNDERLAND vs Crystal Palace – March 1, 2016
Currently two points adrift of survival in the Premier League’s drop zone with only eight fixtures remaining of the 2015-16 season; Sunderland would welcome a few more thunderbolts from striker Fabio Borini between now and the end of the campaign should the Black Cats wish to preserve their top-flight status.
The ex-Chelsea and Liverpool forward earned the hosts what could prove to be a crucial point come May when he lashed home Sunderland’s last-gasp equaliser against Crystal Palace at the Stadium of Light earlier this month.
With the score 2-1 to the Eagles in the dying embers of the match; the Italy international took DeAndre Yedlin’s pass down the right flank in his stride before unexpectedly firing a blistering shot across the face of Wayne Hennessey’s goal from what seemed like a near impossible angle.
Despite that being only his third Premier League goal this term, it was certainly his and Sunderland’s best of the season, so far!
