Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez has been nominated for the Carling Premier League Goal of the Month following his fantastic strike against AFC Bournemouth.

Rodriguez’s superb volley, which sealed a 3-1 win against the Cherries in December, has been nominated alongside seven other great goals.

December’s Carling Goal of the Month shortlist is as follows:

Alexis Sanchez (West Ham vs ARSENAL)
Steve Cook (AFC BOURNEMOUTH vs Liverpool)
Jeff Hendrick (BURNLEY vs AFC Bournemouth)
Wilfried Zaha (Hull City vs CRYSTAL PALACE)
Zlatan Ibrahimovic (West Brom vs MANCHESTER UNITED)
Jay Rodriguez (AFC Bournemouth vs SOUTHAMPTON)
Henrikh Mkhitaryan (MANCHESTER UNITED vs Sunderland)
Fabio Borini (Manchester United vs SUNDERLAND)

The forward netted twice in an important win for Saints against their south-coast rivals, with his second goal also winning the club’s December Goal of the Month award.
