NOW this should generate a fair bit of debate.

Swansea City have complied what they believe are their top five goals from the Swans' 200 Premier League games.

A fair few to choose from - 242, to be exact.

Here are their contenders.

5 – Jonathan de Guzman v Stoke City: January 19, 2013

A blistering counter-attack was finished off by the on-loan de Guzman. Angel Rangel's back-heel into Wayne Routledge began the move, who looked up to play a lovely diagonal into Danny Graham. His one touch lay-off was inch-perfect into the path of de Guzman, the Dutchman's pace too much for Robert Huth before he side-footed finish into the far corner.

4 – Michu v QPR: August 18, 2012

A match that Mark Hughes will want to forget. On the opening day of the Premier League season, Michael Laudrup's first game in charge could have not gone any better, thumping QPR 5-0 at Loftus Road. Routledge was again involved, this time dribbling past Samba Diakité, out-muscling the Malian while striding forward with the ball. The winger rolled a pass into Michu who curled home his second goal into the top corner. A sublime finish.

3 - Wayne Routledge v West Brom: August 30, 2014

Swansea made it three wins from three at the Liberty Stadium and temporarily moved top of the Premier League with a 3-0 victory over West Brom. From creative influence to goalscorer, Routledge bagged the second of the game with a stunning half-volley after Craig Dawson's poor headed clearance. Around 20 yards out, the shot flew into the right corner, leaving Ben Foster scrambling.

2 – Gylfi Sigurdsson v Arsenal: November 11, 2014

The man for the big occasion stepped up to help Swansea to victory over the Gunners and leapfrog them into fifth place. Debutant Modou Barrow was introduced and caused havoc among the Arsenal defence, winning a free-kick 25 yards out. Enter Sigurdsson. The Icelander hit an unstoppable effort passed Wojciech Szczesny into the top-left corner, sending Swansea fans into delirium. A truly fantastic free-kick.

1 – Jonjo Shelvey v Aston Villa: April 4 2014

When Ron Vlaar cleared the ball as far as Jonjo Shelvey on the edge of the centre circle, nobody in their right mind would have predicted what was going to happen next. From fully 45 yards, Shelvey chested the ball down and smashed a half-volley straight back over a retreating Brad Guzan and under the crossbar. A real wonder goal from the now Newcastle star - but does it deservedly top the list?
