In the 28th minute of the Premier League encounter between Newcastle and Southampton, Liverpool ace Takumi Minamino produced a moment of magic to pull a goal back for his new loan club.
Ryan Bertrand charged forward as he does before showing brilliant quality to drill the ball into Minamino on the edge of the box, the Japanese star used a brilliant first touch to knock it around Isaac Hayden.
Minamino then ran onto the rolling ball and blasted it into the roof of the net with a wonderful finish from a tight angle. Liverpool fans will be absolutely delighted to see the ace hitting the ground running.

Jurgen Klopp admitted that the 26-year-old was sent out on loan to get the ace ‘enjoying football’ again, after Minamino appeared just three times in the Reds’ last nine games before his move.
The Saints find themselves behind right now but Minamino could be exactly the kind of creative, energetic player to help get their season back on track after it’s derailed somewhat.
