    All of our first half goals last night were things of beauty...  Each one of them made me jump up and shout.  The first three were each made by utterly glorious, sumptuous passing in the build up, but which was your favourite?

    For me, I thought that Sadio's through ball for the 1st would be the best pass of the year.  Then Trent hit THAT ball to Sadio for the 2nd...  Oh my goodness, what a ball!!!!  One of the best passes I've ever seen.

    Your turn.

    Sadio to Divok. The bend, the pace, the placement - all perfect.

    Sadio's for the first goal. Vision, perfect weight on the pass, and with his weaker foot. I'd even put his pass for Shaq's goal second. The other passes, impressive as they were, were more speculative. Sadio knew exactly what he was doing.

    Yeah, that was the most memorable one for me. Especially coming from Sadio, for whom passing is not the strongest part of his game – but this pass would make De Bruyne proud, absolute perfection.

    Michael Owen and Phil Neville actually spent a few minutes on Trent's short pass for Mane's goal – saying how it almost forced Mane to curl it exactly the way he did and how difficult it is to do at full pelt (and without telegraphing it). Firmino's turn and pass for Gini was quite delicious too. These bits of play and many more like them (some of Shaqiri's little flicks and turns, for example, Virgil and Dejan's long passing and Mane's overall awesomeness) made this one of our most aesthetically pleasing games to watch this season.

    Great pass and finish, but Pickford was all over the shop the whole game.

    I think div’s second was my favourite goal of the season, delighted for him. Reminds me of the hopeful balls Enrique used to launch towards Suarez who was so good he often made something out of them.

    But pass 1 - Sadio to Div was amazing, clear winner for me

    Sadio's to Shaq. Just the right place, strength, and stunning vision.

    But hey, all five were indeed things of beauty !

    Watching the clip of number 5 again, I reckon the 'no look' gives Gini that split second he needs to get the shot in before being blocked or tackled.

    Talking about passes...Trent is now on 6 assists in the premier League. It's incredible.

    I've now added Bobby to Gini for number 5 as well, but there's only one winner here...  They were really were ALL gorgeous goals.  Even better 'coz they were scored against that shower.

    What a beauty from Sadio to Divock. The vision, the verve, the curve, the precision, the finish. Perfection. (But firstly from TAA exocet missile Cross field pass controlled with a great touch. This is so similar to the one TAA cross field pass to Robertson who passed to Salah to score against City with his head, in terms of precision).

    Sadio's favourite was goal #2, going by his comments on LFC.com.   :D

    Hendo doesn't get on the list cos Sadio didn't score those two relatively easy chances towards the end but both Hendo passes cut open the Everton defence.

    I went back and watched them... the pass from Trent to Sadio has my vote. The technique on the pass and Sadio's take of it are balletic to me.
