The West Ham striker netted an acrobatic effort in his side's win over Crystal Palace, with fans online calling it one of the best of the season

Andy Carroll is not usually known for his world-class strikes, but he silenced his doubters on Saturday with a sensational bicycle kick against Crystal Palace.

Carroll scored the second in West Ham's 3-0 win, acrobatically putting the ball past Wayne Hennessey to meet Michail Antonio's cross.

The goal was widely hailed on Twitter, with many claiming it was better than both Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Olivier Giroud's scorpion kick strikes.

Praise continues to roll in for a goal that is sure to make every highlights reel of the 2016-17 Premier League season.

What a hit, son!
