Marko Grujic's facial expression, after Jordan Henderson scored against Chelsea, said it all.

When Gary Cahill's mis-hit clearance landed at the feet of Jordan Henderson, nobody expected the Liverpool midfielder to double his side's lead at Stamford Bridge with such a net-busting beauty.

Henderson's peach into the top corner stunned the Chelsea fans, but also Liverpool substitute Grujic.

While the other players celebrated wildly, the Serbian midfielder looked completely dumbstruck by Henderson's sensational strike.

Grujic told "When Jordan first shot, [the ball bent] so far from the goal but then I saw it go in the net and I was shocked - a nice shocked!"

"He scored one of the best goals I've ever seen in my life. My reaction was the truth and that's why I made a strange face but it was a nice goal, one of the best I've seen."

The goal propelled Liverpool to a brilliant 2-1 victory against Antonio Conte's side, leaving Jurgen Klopp's men with an impressive seven points out of nine from trips to Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea.
