The Premier League have announced their nominees for the usual monthly awards, including Goal of the Month, for which Oleksandr Zinchenko has received a nomination.

Zinchenko scored his goal against Burnley after the ball spilled to him following a set piece.

The left-back leapt up and pulled off an acrobatic volley into the top corner of the net, with an unusual technique that certainly caught the eye. You can vote for the goal here.
