Four games, four goals for Charlie Davies, but which one is the best?

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

With four goals in four games, Charlie Davies certainly doesn't look like a forward who nearly went three years without finding the back of the net. Davies has clearly found his form for the New England Revolution and there's only one question to ask: which goal is the best? Let us review.

April 19: Davies Slides against the Philadelphia Union

At first glance, Davies' first of 2015 looks like an easy one as the striker simply has to redirect the ball into an empty net. However, you have consider the craftiness of Davies' run as he stays onside and accelerates at the right time. The final touch, an all-out slide, epitomizes the player's desire to score.

April 25: Davies Out Jumps Real Salt Lake

With the game already 2-0, Davies put things out of reach by nodding home a Scott Caldwell cross. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of this tally is the fact that Davies seemingly levitates for a moment before making contact with the ball. Not bad for a player who claims that headers aren't his strong suit.

May 2, 2015: Davies Dives against New York Red Bulls

On week later, Davies kept his scoring streak alive with another header. This time, the New Hampshire native went to ground to put a diving header past Luis Robles. The play was almost a combination of his first two goals of the year as it melded grit and skill.

May 8: Davies Scores from Distance against Orlando City SC

Although Caldwell deserves a lot of credit on this goal, Davies showed a lot of individual skill to give his team the lead. After taking several touches, Davies found enough space to fire a distance shot into Donovan Ricketts' net.
