Adam Lallana won't have a more fortuitous goal in his life. 

In the 51st minute of Liverpool's Premier League match with Swansea City, Lallana, a summer buy from Southampton, closed down on Swansea goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski. Despite the Swansea netminder having plenty of time to clear the ball after receiving a back pass, he fired directly into Lallana's midsection ... and the ball ricocheted with precision into the vacated net to give Liverpool a 2-0 lead.

To show that he's more about skill than luck, Lallana scored a first-class goal 10 minutes later, weaving through the Swansea defense following a great Coutinho pass to restore a two-goal edge after the Swans had pulled one back immediately after his stroke of luck.

The goal tally doubled Lallana's total with Liverpool on the season.
