Van Persie or Hulk: Who scored Saturday's best wonder-goal?

Wonder-goal: Hulk (c) celebrates his strike against Anzhi.

When Manchester United opened their Premier League account with an emphatic victory at Swansea City on Saturday, there was no surprise to see Robin van Persie stealing the headlines. 

Van Persie's double, of which both goals were incredible finishes, earned the Dutchman renewed plaudits following a stellar title-winning debut season with United last year.

The former Arsenal captain's second goal in particular had football fans the world over arguing whether the goal of the season had already been scored on the opening day.

But while United fans revelled in Van Persie's brilliance, Zenit St Petersburg supporters could argue the finest goal scored on Saturday was delivered by their star forward.

Step forward Hulk. The Brazilian striker endured a tough first season with Zenit following his €40 million move from Porto last summer, mustering just seven league goals. 

But in his third appearance of this season, Hulk got off the mark in some style with this spectacular curling effort in Zenit's 3-0 win over beleaguered Anzhi Makhachkala.

But which one do you think is a better goal?
