Some things just fall into place perfectly, at the right moment, Unfortunately for us, these are usually things that we can't control, which means we have to savour them when they do happen.

One such instance of this occurred during Monday night's game between Liverpool and Watford, and luckily there were cameras positioned in the right place to pick up something rather amusing.

The game was settled by a single goal, but it just so happened that the goal was one of the finest the Premier League has ever seen.

Reds midfielder-cum-defender Emre Can found himself in the right spot to pull off a manoeuvre of such athletic excellence that his overhead kick looped over the outstretched hand of the goalkeeper.

Quite simply, it was a fantastic goal that was worthy of settling a tight game and proved that Liverpool do have a talented squad despite their deficiencies when it comes to maintaining a serious title challenge.

However, where the goal was impressive, the reaction from the Watford fans in the stand behind the goal was just magic.

Football is often capable of producing moments that can take the breath away of those watching, and it seemed that Can's effort did exactly that for some members of the Hornets faithful.

The Sky cameras filming the goal inadvertently panned wide to follow the ball as it sailed into the net and managed to capture the reactions of a handful of fans who all couldn't help but allow their jaws to drop to the floor in the process.

However, while those fans were astounded when it actually happened, there was one man in the stadium who didn't see it – Reds boss Jurgen Klopp.

In his post-match comments to Sky Sports he informed the pundits in the studio that he turned at the wrong moment and missed the magical effort going in. Gutted.

That won't matter too much, though, as he will be more interested in the fact that the victory has moved Liverpool four points above Manchester United in fifth, and keeps them well on course for a return to Champions League football next term.
