Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry described Peter Crouch's Stoke City goal as "unstoppable".

The striker headed on a long clearance from Asmir Begovic, flicked up a return header from Jermaine Pennant and then twisted to volley a sensational shot over Joe Hart from 25 yards.

"You have got to hold your hands up," said Barry. "It was an unstoppable strike.

"Joe was disappointed to concede it but there is nothing you can do about it.

"It should be goal of the season. It is just one of those things, it was unstoppable."
