This week's selection of top goals includes Ronaldinho, Fernando Torres, and Robin Van Persie.

It's that time again, and our goals of the week this time features some remarkable technique, a thrilling solo goal, and a hit-and-hope screamer that a brick wall couldn't have stopped. Settle down and enjoy...

5. Fernando Torres - CHELSEA Vs. Newcastle

Short and sweet - a simple but perfectly-executed piece of play ended by a superb finish.

4. Goncalves Dos Santos Ismaily - BRAGA Vs. Udinese

Some goals have great technique, some goals have great vision, some goals are great team moves, and some goals just consist of picking up the ball from miles out and hitting it as hard as you possibly can and hoping it goes in if only so that it doesn't kill someone in the crowd. This is one of those.

3. Ronaldinho - Cruzeiro Vs. ATLETICO MINEIRO

A brilliant solo goal from Ronaldinho, bringing back memories of when he was hands-down the most exciting player in the world.

2. Robin Van Persie - MANCHESTER UNITED Vs. Fulham

The Dutchman opens his Manchester United account with this ingenious piece of technique against Fulham. The value of the former Arsenal striker is immediately obvious - United have no other players in their squad who could've scored this one.

1. Pablo Osvaldo - ROMA Vs. Catania

Simply perfect technique from Osvaldo, as he collects Daniele De Rossi's through ball and manages to get perfect power and placement from a difficult angle with an acrobatic finish.
