Watching the highlights reel again and right from Kelly's clearance towards Benteke. CB was sharp to get to the ball first and hold off the defender while turning and laying it off to Wilf before spinning away taking the defender with him. Wilf composed did a neat shuffle, holding the ball before spraying it wide to Andros sitting deep and wide in space. Andros carried it quickly forward with a lot of movement in front of him he picked out the channel run from Sako who took defenders with him but intelligently played it back to Andros early. Andros with everything in front of him picked a simple ball to Luka who was right up with play and unmarked 20+ yards out but with a lot to do still albeit without a DM etc in sight. He just hit it first time, firmly but with accuracy and it curled beautifully into the corner with McCarthy stranded.

Where their midfield had gone, nobody knows but who cares. The space Andros and Luka had was criminal. A thing of beauty in a fairly awful match on an awful pitch. Very much out of place. Even the celebration was amazing
