This was The Little Pharaoh's first competitive goal since February.
"It was my first goal in an official match since the derby and it's also my first header, so it's very satisfying.
"This is an El Shaarawy who really wants to get going, to score and do well. Now we must focus on the game with Verona and then consider the second leg."
