In our weekend preview, we told you Stoke would be a tough opponent for the millionaires from Manchester City. 

What we didn’t predict was that England striker Peter Crouch would score a contender for goal of the season – a fantastic piece of control and a scorching volley from 30 yards that Crouch hit across his body, into the top corner of the opposite side of the goal, to give Stoke the lead. 

Watch the goal here.
