Liverpool's Christian Benteke scored a goal of the season contender with this incredible effort at Old Trafford

Christian Benteke scored an early goal of the season contender with this brilliant overhead kick for Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Brendan Rodgers' side went down 3-1 at the home of their fierce rivals Manchester United in Saturday evening's Premier League encounter but were given a glimmer of hope with four minutes to go when Benteke volleyed home an incredible acrobatic effort.

Jordon Ibe's cross was headed more up than out and the Belgium international striker acrobatically launched himself into the air and produced a scissor kick of the highest quality to leave David de Gea helpless in the United goal.
