In this article, we will reflect on the goals that every fan must remember and look back on fondly. Sometimes they are memorable because of the quality of the strike, whereas other goals are remembered because of their impact in the game. A top quality strike is even sweeter when you have bet on the result. It is easy to start gambling on Everton matches. You can find the top gambling websites on www.topratedbettingsites.co.uk.

There is nothing more satisfying than a last-minute screamer being scored to win your bet. Without further ado, we present some of the most memorable goals in Everton’s history.
1. Osman vs. Larissa 2007
We start our list with a fine team effort that was scored in the Uefa Cup against Larissa. There were a number of fantastic passing movements which were finished off by a lethal Osman strike from outside the box. We include this goal because of the slick team-play involved, and the clinical strike from Osman. The build-up play combined with the finish makes this one of the most memorable Everton goals. The end result was a comfortable 3-1 victory.
2. Graeme Sharp vs. Liverpool 1984
The second goal to make it on our list is a wonderful solo goal that every older Everton fan will remember. The fact that it settled the Merseyside derby made it even sweeter. This incredible wonder-strike was hit on the half-volley from quite a distance out.
The first touch was simply exquisite, and it may even be the best solo goal ever scored by Everton. It helped the team to defeat Liverpool 1-0 and give Everton full bragging rights. The quality of the strike means that this goal is still well remembered.
3. Gylfi Sigurdsson vs Hajduk Split 2017
Sigurdsson ensured that his full debut would be forever remembered. Everton were up against Hajduk Split in a crucial Europa League qualifier. It was the second leg, and their 2-0 lead from the first leg had been cut in half due to a Hajduk goal. The second half was, therefore, tense. Thankfully, Sigurdsson calmed those nerves with a simply audacious strike all the way from 50 yards out. He caught the goalkeeper off his line and ensured his team went through to the next round. This goal will be forever remembered due to how spectacular it was.
4. Leighton Baines vs. Newcastle 2013
Leighton Baines has solidified his legend status at the club. As a defender, he is well known for chipping along with the odd assist and goal. One of his most memorable goals was scored against Newcastle in 2013.
He has always been the man for set-pieces, but this goal was special even for his lofty standards.
The ball was 35 yards out, and there were few in the crowd who thought he would shoot. But, he let forth with a powerful drive that gave Krul no chance at all. It was a sweet strike that encapsulates his Everton career.
5. Arteta vs. Liverpool 2010
Another player who is forever woven into the history of Everton is Mikel Arteta.
He is well known for coming through with excellent goals throughout his career. One of the most memorable came against Liverpool in 2010. This Merseyside derby was closely watched by new Liverpool owner John W Henry. He got to witness an Arteta wonder-strike that sealed all three points for Everton.
It came in the second-half after a corner was failed to be cleared. Arteta took one touch and then drove it home through a crowded penalty area. Pepe Reina had no chance. This match and goal are highly memorable because of how dominant Everton were against their neighbors.
All of these goals are special in their own way. Evertonians have been blessed by some incredible strikes over the years.
They include a mix of long-range efforts and excellent team-play goals.
