Taarabt's Too Good For You
If you've not yet seen Taarabt's dreamboat of an assist for the winning goal at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday night then, really, you've not lived.
From my obscenely biased perspective I would say it is the pass of the Premiership 2012/2013 season and Adel's best assist since that outside of the boot long ball to Wayne Routledge in the Championship.
Taarabt's perfectly weighted lay-off to Wright-Phillips capped what was perhaps the magical Moroccan's finest performance in the hoops; he played the unfamiliar lone striker role like he'd been doing it since he was 11 and either won a foul or found a pass almost every single time.
