The English Premier League gained a “Goal of the Year” candidate on Monday.
Late in their match against Sunderland, Manchester United’s Henrikh Mkhitaryan received a cross from Zlatan Ibrahimovic and finished with an unbelievable back-heeled strike.
Take a look at the goal below:
When looking at the side view of the goal, it sure looks like Mkhitaryan was offside on the play, but the referees failed to blow the whistle and allowed the brilliant goal.
It was a great day for Mkhitaryan and the Red Devils, as they handily defeated Sunderland 3-1.
