One of the best goals of the Premier League era

Stoke City midfielder Charlie Adam left Stamford Bridge with mixed feelings after scoring one of the best goals of the Premier League era in the defeat to Chelsea.

The Scotland international picked the ball up inside his own half and stunned Blues goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois with a sensational 66-yard effort.

Courtois scrambled back towards goal but was unable to deny the 29-year-old former Liverpool man the goal of his career.

Adam admitted: 'The disappointing thing is we lost the game. On a personal note it is a great goal to score. I saw the keeper off his line, had an effort and it has gone in.

'I always have a look at the goalkeeper because these balls move so much. When you have got that much space and time it is good to do something like that.' 

Adam later told the BBC: 'I never knew I had that much power, to beat a quality goalkeeper like that is something special. Once in a lifetime this can happen to you.'
