Mario Balotelli’s long wait for a Premier League goal for Liverpool has finally ended, with the vital winner against Tottenham his first for any employer since way back in November 2012.
The world has changed in no small manner since the Italian slammed the opener past despairing Wigan defenders to open the scoring for Manchester City at the DW Stadium more than two years ago.
Dave Whelan’s playthings would go on to shock the Citizens in that year’s FA Cup final.
However, when it comes to world events that transpired before Balotelli would ripple another Premier League net, that giant killing forms the thin end of the wedge – as our graphic illustrates.
Having notched for Liverpool in the Champions League, the Capital One Cup and now the Premier League, Balotelli is 19/10 to complete the four-competition set for the Reds with a goal against recent nemeses Crystal Palace in the FA Cup this weekend.
