The Croatian, who also scored in wins over Luton and Nottingham Forest, bagged a brace in the victory at Fulham on Saturday to send the champions well on their way to yet another three points.

The Colombian attacker was substituted on with his side 3-1 down and seemingly resigned to defeat, but found the net in the 85th and 88th minute as Liverpool, to earn what could be a pivotal point in the race for Champions League football.
