It may have come all too late for Brendan Rodgers' floundering Liverpool side, but their consolatory goal against Man Utd - scored by £32.5m man Christian Benteke - is an early contender for goal of the season. 

Displaying extraordinary guile and athleticism, Benteke is able to hold off Ander Herrera before leaping and twisting in the air, striking the ball beautifully into David de Gea's net. Liverpool fans must be hoping that he will be the man to save their season - so long as he delivers magic like this consistently.
