VICTOR OSIMHEN sent Manuel Locatelli flying with a brutal UPPERCUT on a bruising night for Juventus at Napoli.
The Nigerian striker, who has been linked with a transfer to Manchester United over recent months, was in red-hot form on Friday.
Osimhen grabbed a brace as Napoli thumped Juventus 5-1 to open up a ten-point lead at the top of Serie A.
But he was also involved in a hilarious incident that accidentally left opponent Locatelli floored after catching him Tyson Fury-style.
The 24-year-old was playing the ball forward towards a teammate when Juventus defender Alex Sandro came in behind him and gave him a shove after the pass had been made.
Osimhen was sent spinning by the challenge, but as he attempted to wriggle free of the Brazilian, he turned away and threw his left arm up in the air.

Unfortunately for the onrushing Locatelli, the former Lille star’s fist came flying up and caught him straight on the chin, which sent him tumbling to the turf, as Osimhen pleaded his innocence.
And it got even worse physically for Juventus as their physio was soon sent tumbling himself.
As he waited with his medical bag on the touchline to be waved on by the referee to give treatment, Federico Chiesa went crashing into him as chased a loose ball.
The unlucky physio went flying, along with his bag, in comedic fashion.

That capped off a miserable evening for Massimiliano Allegri’s men in Naples.
Osimhen broke the deadlock on 14 minutes before Khvicha Kvaratskhelia doubled the advantage.
Angel Di Maria gave Juventus hope of a comeback before the break but it was one-way traffic after the restart.
Amir Rrahmani made it three before Osimhen got his second to make it four.
And Elif Elmas capped off a dominant display by making it five to leave Juventus licking their wounds.
But it was the comedic scenes in the 47th-minute that had most people talking after the footage was shared online.

While a fellow supporter said: “ITS RAINING MEN, HALLELUJAH ITS RAINING MEN!”
