It was a week of unpredictable results in the Barclays Premier League. The city of Manchester burned as both United and City were held goalless against Burnley and Stoke respectively. There were plenty of quality performances around the country but I've tried my best to narrow it down to these three candidates:
- Diego Costa, F (Chelsea) - It is three goals in three games for the man up front for Chelsea. His brace in a 6-3 goalfest with Everton keeps him in the driver's seat for the Golden Boot.
- Gylfi Sigurdsson, M (Swansea City) - The Swans are having a dream start to the season and Sigurdsson is one of the main reasons why. His passing is making life much easier for the likes of Wilfried Bony, Nathan Dyer, and Wayne Routledge. The Icelandic international assisted on both of Dyer's goals in a 3-0 win versus West Brom.
- Raheem Sterling, M (Liverpool) - The youngster, and Week 1 winner of our award, scored again for the Reds as they ran roughshod over then top of the table Spurs. His endless energy and pace made 90 minutes seem like 900 for the Tottenham backline.
Week 1: Raheem Sterling, M (Liverpool)
Week 2: Stevan Jovetic, F (Manchester City)
I've limited the Goals of the Week selection to three over the past two installments of these votes. This week I am pushing the number to five, mostly because I found a highlight video with the Top 5 Goals of the Week. Here is the list of the goals and that video. Vote early and often in the comments and we'll announce Friday who took home each award!

- Mame Biram Diouf, F (Stoke City) vs. Manchester City (1-0, 58')
- Alberto Moreno, D (Liverpool) vs. Tottenham Hotspur (3-0, 60')
- Wayne Routledge, M (Swansea City) vs. West Bromwich Albion (2-0, 24')
