WATCH: Christian Benteke breaks scoring deadlock between Liverpool and Sunderland

At just 22 seconds into the second half of Sunderland vs. Liverpool, Christian Benteke powered his way into the box and score his second goal in as many games, putting Liverpool up 1-0.

While it was a quick, accurate finish, it wasn’t the most difficult shot of the game. What makes this goal special is the teamwork and misdirection that ensued before the goal. Nathaniel Clyne set up the initial pass. Roberto Firmino acted as if he was going to play the ball but didn’t. Then Adam Lallana gave the tiniest of flicks to put the ball through to Benteke into the box, who finished the play and give Liverpool the lead.
