With BBC choosing to overlook Manchester United's FA Cup third round tie with Derby County in favour of showing the Merseyside Derby, few were really surprised.
Yet, while you were watching Liverpool inch out a 2-1 win against Everton, United's Jesse Lingard continued what he has been doing all season - scoring screamers from distance.
With Derby showing plenty of resistance to United's strong attacking threat, it fell once again to Lingard to push United over the line.
Receiving the ball on the edge of the box, United's outstanding talent of recent weeks curled a majestic effort around a helpless Scott Carson in the Derby goal.
Although most people would have had their eyes fixed firmly on the Derby taking place, there has been a large outpouring of love for Lingard's latest individual effort.
If Griezmann was doing for Utd what Lingard has been doing this season he’d be celebrated as a superb signing.
