Antoine Griezmann reacts on Twitter to Daniel Sturridge’s assist for Liverpool v LeicesterPublished September 11, 2016
Gameweek four, of the Premier League season, treated us with some quite spectacular assists.
Dimitri Payet’s rabona set-up for Michail Antonio during West Ham’s 4-2 defeat against Watford will certainly steal the headlines, but there was one more quite outrageous assist which must be given praise.
Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge step forward…
The England international has given Payet, a serious run for his money with an exquisite back-heel for Sadio Mane’s goal during the Merseyside Club’s 4-1 win against champions Leicester on Saturday night.
Sturridge played the ball into Mane’s path with a lovely improvised piece of skill, which led to social media waxing lyrical over the assist, including a certain Antoine Griezmann.
The Atleitco Madrid forward was clearly impressed by Sturridge’s classy bit of skill, and took to his Twitter to laud the England international.
Cue the Griezmann to Liverpool rumours.
Take a look at the Tweets below.
