Watch Tom Carroll's assists from Saturday

Charlie Crowhurst

Tom Carroll over everything.

Tom Carroll had a terrific game as Queens Park Rangers beat Nottingham Forest 5-2 at Loftus Road. Carroll played a crucial part in each of QPR's first three goals.  His fierce drive from the edge of the box after just 60 seconds resulted in the Forest keeper parrying the ball and Yossi Benayoun stabbing home from two-yards out.

In the 43rd minute, he played a lovely one-two with Junior Hoilett for QPR's second goal:

Finally, in the 84th minute, his clever reverse pass allowed Nedum Onuoha to curl past the Forest keeper to restore QPR's advantage:

Carroll finished the game with two assists, four key passes, and three tackles. Championship games are mostly low-intelligence hoofball, so it's nice to see Carroll was still able to apply a touch of quality to the proceedings.

It's entirely fair to say that Tom Carroll is a shiny golden god and the best thing to ever happen to football. Xavi is the Spanish Tom Carroll.
