We are now a week into the new decade and we can confirm that the Reds are still top of the league. With many best of the decade lists now done and dusted we have one last poll to analyse – Liverpool have announced their top three goals of the decade.
During December, Liverpool ran a series of Twitter polls to find the nominees for our goal of the decade – each poll producing a nominee for each year.
Strikes from Steven Gerrard and Roberto Firmino were all considered as Kopites around the world cast their vote for the best efforts of the last 10 years.
The Liverpool goals of the decade vary between wonder goals and important moments. Third place was won by Emre Can for his overhead kick against Watford, second was Divock Origi’s winner against Barcelona, top spot was handed to Mo Salah for his individual effort against Spurs. You can watch the goals below.
HERE IT IS! 🥁
Throughout December, fans chose the best #LFC goal from each year of the 2010s, with 10 memorable efforts progressing to a final vote… 🗳️

Not for me Geoff. Whilst these are some incredible goals for the club, there are some glaring omissions from the Liverpool goals of the decade.
Luis Suarez has been frankly robbed in this poll. The Uruguayan scored a bag full of wonder goals whilst at the club. Perhaps none more miraculous than his goal against Newcastle. A long ball from Jose Enrique found the striker behind the United defence, Suarez took the ball down on his chest before rounding the keeper and tapping home – it was poetry in motion.
Whilst Salah’s goal against Spurs was an impressive effort, it doesn’t make our top three – it may not even be in his top three at the club. The Origi strike should have taken top place for us, it would have been fitting – it’s about the moment for Kopites, about the memories – it may not have been the hardest finish in the world but it meant the world to us.
