10 things we loved: Hazard & Kante, Leeds, Coutinho, Kane & more

Quick Reads

Chelsea, Leeds United, Liverpool and Tottenham moments all caught our eye over the Christmas period.

Eden Hazard & N’Golo Kante

Two of the Premier League’s best linked up for what would have been a sensational goal for Chelsea against Brighton.

Our favourite thing about this is that it was described as “titillating” on Reddit.

Leeds United

As far as free-kick routines go, distracting the goalkeeper so he pulls down a member of the opposition’s shorts is a new one on us.

What a hit from Pablo Hernandez too.

Harry Kane

You know the people moaning about how calendar records aren’t a thing? They’re the same people that go on about how Harry Kane can’t score in August.

Whether you like the record or not, the fact remains the same: Harry Kane is brilliant.

Philippe Coutinho

The Premier League is really going to miss him when he goes to Barcelona.

Steve Defour

How very f*cking hell.

Antonio Conte

Football managers often have a frosty relationship with the media, but Antonio Conte showed himself to be the ultimate gentleman in toasting the press after Chelsea’s victory over Brighton.

Huddersfield vs Stoke

Blue and white stripes vs red and white stripes is properly wonderful.

Plus, it featured this goalmouth scramble.

George Weah

He’s done it. The former Ballon d’Or winner has become the president of Liberia.

Still not as good as his goal against Verona, mind.

Football songs

When we asked Tom Victor to rank the best football songs of all time, we only expected him to do a top 10 or something.

He’s only gone and f*cking ranked them all.
