Gary Lineker and Co. aren’t the biggest fans of working during the week.

So on the rare occasion that Match of the Day is scheduled on a Wednesday evening, Britain sits up and takes some serious notice.

And last night was no exception, as BBC One served up a delicious fixture list filled with goals.

By Scott MacArthur – @scottmacarthur8

Luis Suarez stole the show against Norwich, Chelsea edged past Sunderland in a 4-3 thriller while David Moyes lost 1-0 to his former employers Everton – damaging any hopes of Manchester United pushing for the title.

But it wasn’t just the quantity of goals that made last night so special. It was the quality.

Have a look:

Eden Hazard V Sunderland

The Belgian’s second goal of the night was an absolute beauty.

Lampard’s perfectly executed back-heel pass found Hazard, who then cut inside and smashed the ball past a helpless Vito Mannone.

Mesut Ozil V Hull

This kind of goal seems to be embedded in Arsenal’s DNA this season.

Aaron Ramsey’s beautiful defence-splitting pass found an onrushing Mesut Ozil, who showed great composure in sealing a 2-0 win for the Gunners.

Luis Suarez 1st V Norwich


Just wow.

Suarez isn’t liked by many – especially Norwich ‘keeper John Ruddy after the Uruguayan scored his third hat-trick against the Canaries.

Like him or loathe him, there is surely no one who can say he is a bad player. This 40-yard screamer was the first of four goals for the striker in a 5-1 victory.

Fabian Delph V Southampton


Last gasp, match-winning goals are always special but when Fabian Delph put Villa 3-2 up in the 80th minute last night, it was simply breathtaking.

The English youngster was allowed space to carry the ball forward before unleashing a stunning strike past stand-in goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga.

 Luis Suarez 3rd V Norwich


Not many players complete a first half hat-trick in front of the Kop but Luis Suarez did just that with this spectacular goal.

Suarez carried the ball from 40-yards, ran through four Norwich players, flicked it over Leroy Fer, allowed it to bounce and fired into the net past John Ruddy.

Take a bow Luis, take a bow.
