(Video): Chelsea player given Gary Neville’s goal of the season for unique strike

Gary Neville has picked Mateo Kovacic’s volley against Liverpool as his Premier League goal of the season.

The midfielder got Chelsea back into the game at a crucial moment as he clipped a dipping ball with perfect precision. He was retreating from goal but still got perfect connection to fire it home. And get Chelsea back into a game that they had looked like they were going to lose.

There’s something unique Kovacic about the goal – a brilliant technical effort but not in a traditional striker’s fashion.
