Anguissa adds goals to his repertoire
Having not scored a league goal since appearing for La Liga outfit Villarreal on 19th July 2020, few will have expected the 26-year-old to be the match winner in Naples with his goalscoring exploits.
On six minutes, Anguissa made a perfectly timed run into the Torino box to meet a Khvicha Kvaratskhelia cross from the left wing, and direct a header narrowly past Toro goalkeeper Vanja Milinkovic-Savic.
After becoming Napoli’s 10th different scorer in Serie A this term, the former Fulham midfielder doubled his contribution just six minutes later. Allowed to drive towards goal from the halfway line and slot the ball confidently passed the Serbian custodian.
Nearly three decades have passed since a Napoli player last netted in the opening 15 minutes of a Serie A fixture. Striker Daniel Fonseca achieving the feat on 16th January 1994 against Cremonese.
