Mario Balotelli finally scored a Premier League goal for Liverpool - and it won them the game at home to Tottenham Hotspur.

The Italian, bought for £16million in the summer, scored after 770 minutes in the Premier League to score the decisive goal as Liverpool beat Tottenham after a thrilling 90 minutes at Anfield.

Balotelli had been the subject of much mocking from supporters around the country, having taken 47 shots without scoring a single goal in the English top flight.

But that all ended when Balotelli latched on to Adam Lallana's cross to poke the ball into the top corner and give Liverpool the lead with just eight minutes to spare.

It was his first Premier League goal since scoring away at Wigan on 28 November, 2012.

Here are a few of the best tweets, including one from the man himself...
