Best of the Blues' goals this season

2014/15 was a letdown for Everton fans after the achievements of 2013/14, but there were some great goals scored along the way. Many will disagree with the goals ranked fifth through second, but I think we all can agree on number one. Feel free to rank your own in the comments section below, and add some other goals we might have missed.

5. Romelu Lukaku vs. BSC Young Boys. February 26, 2015.

Lukaku scored two of his career-high 20 goals against BSC Young Boys in a Europa League match that saw the Blues on to the round of 16. The Belgian made it 2-1 to the hosts when he bounded into the box and smashed Luke Garbutt's cross into the back of the net. While Lukaku scored a number of good-looking goals on the season, and especially in this competition, none matched the beauty of this one.

4. James McCarthy vs. Manchester United. April 26, 2015.

Though this may not be the prettiest finish, McCarthy showed his special work rate and drive on this goal, and it put Everton up early en route to a 3-0 thrashing of Manchester United at Goodison Park. Watch as he threads a pass wide to Seamus Coleman, gets the ball back in front of the penalty box, splits two defenders, and then slots past David De Gea to make it 1-0.

3. Kevin Mirallas vs. West Ham United. January 13, 2015.

The match ended in heartbreaking Everton defeat and crashing out of the FA Cup in the third round, but Everton would have never had a chance to make it exciting without Kevin Mirallas' contribution. Mirallas came on in the 67th minute and 15 minutes later his free kick from just outside the box flew over the West Ham wall, past a diving Adrian, and into the back of the net. His goal, plus an assist on a Romelu Lukaku extra time goal helped Everton push the game into penalty kicks at the end.

2. Ross Barkley vs. Queens Park Rangers.

Barkley had a bit of a rough season, but enjoyed the home match against QPR. Manager Roberto Martinez had Barkley lined up deeper in the midfield alongside Muhamed Besic, and it resulted in this screamer against the now-relegated Rangers.

1. Phil Jagielka vs. Liverpool. September 27, 2014.

There could be no other. Not only was the Captain's Merseyside Derby equalizer the best goal of 2014/15, it was probably the high point of the season as the Blues avoided falling to their bitter rivals with the late strike. Enjoy it again below.
