Charlie Austin scores two of the exact same goals against Everton

Same crossing position. Same point of contact. Same result. Spooky stuff from Southampton's Charlie Austin

All good things come in pairs.

Yorke and Cole. Peanut butter and jam. Wallace and Gromit. You get the idea…

Charlie Austin helped himself to two goals for Southampton against Everton to justify Mauricio Pellegrino’s decision to bring the Englishman in from the cold.

But there was something spooky about his double. The two goals were essentially exactly the same.

In this game of 22 moving parts and a ball Austin managed to score two exact replicas.

For a start look at where the cross came in from.

Then came the point of contact with Austin’s head.

Both headers were from the exact same spot in the six-yard box.

You know what they say. If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.

Even the celebration- an excited run towards the corner flag- was the same for both goals.

A lovely bit of copy and paste work from Austin.

It’s just a shame Sigurdsson had already scored the goal of the game by hitting the woodwork three times before the ball crossed the line.
