At Anfield in February 2018, Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur played out a thrilling encounter which saw missed penalties, goalscoring milestones achieved and two contenders for Goal of the Season.
Leading 1-0 from the third minute onwards, Liverpool were hanging on against a barrage of Tottenham pressure and they eventually buckled with 10 minutes left to play. It looked like Liverpool FC goalkeeper Loris Karius had got enough on his punch from Christian Eriksen’s cross. The ball landed at the feet of Victor Wanyama and the Kenyan international launched a missile of a shot into the top corner of the net. No goalkeeper in the world would have stopped this thunderbolt.
Wanyama had only just arrived into the game as a substitute, so this was some introduction. The points were ultimately shared and despite some individual brilliance from Mohamed Salah later on, this goal from Wanyama was surely the best of the day.
