Of course, both have presided over fabulous Premier League campaigns and are fully deserving of the trinket in their own right a fact that obviously hasn't eluded De Bruyne.

Pies feel obliged to admit at this juncture that we've never really felt any special admiration for Dennis Bergkamp's goal against Newcastle in 2002: your newly-crowned 'Best Goal in the History of the Premier League'.

It's a nice enough goal, sure the turn is clinical, the touch superb, etc but as far as we're concerned (not very, truth be told) it's not even top-three material when it comes toBergkamp's personal highlight reel.

At current state of play, seven games into the Premier League season, Crystal Palace are the only team in the top nine levels of the English football pyramid that's 30 different divisions to have zero league goals and zero league points to their name thus far.

With that in mind, it's perhaps unsurprising that material was a little thin on the ground when eminent Palace fanzine Five Year Plan came to cobble together their poll for the September Goal of the Month competition.
