West Ham’s power packed Benny’s big award



Saïd Benrahma has won the Premier League’s Oracle Most Powerful Goal award for the 2022/23 season.

His incredible Benrahma’s rocket strike against Crystal Palace at London Stadium back in November has been elected the best seen at the highest level of the English game.

The midfield/striker moved away from two Eagles defenders before unleashing an unstoppable right-footed shot into the top-left corner.

The strike was measured to have an average speed of 107.17km/h between the ball leaving his boot to crossing the goal line.

This was the fastest average speed from all the goals scored from outside the area in the 2022/23 season without a deflection off another player.

Benrahma becomes the second player to win the prize after Manchester City’s Fernandinho claimed the inaugural award last season.

ClaretandHugh says: Benny has been one of the better players in a poor League season and it’s good to see him pick up this award after scoring one or two of real quality. Well done Benny.

    That confirms it then. Score great goals, like Manu Lanzini v Spuds, and he won’t get a look in under Moyes. Watch this space, starting with Prague.
