11 things we loved this week: Saul, Ramsey, Robertson, Payet, Ba
A host of matches were played across Europe this week with knockout ties in both the Champions League and Europa League.
As a result a number of sumptuous goals were scored, including one of the classiest free-kicks we’ve ever seen.
The midfielder appeared desperate to pass the ball to somebody as he broke away for Atletico Madrid against Lokomotiv Moscow. Nothing was on, so he just spanked it into the net instead.
Can’t we see this Arsenal more often?
Want to see Henrikh Mkhitaryan signing ‘Oh Mickey you’re so fine’? Then you’ll thoroughly enjoy this video.
The striker has now scored a Bundesliga goal in each of the last 20 years, meaning we’ve been treated to this compilation of a goal from each year.
A young Liverpool fan and a young Liverpool player being absolutely mint. Lovely stuff.

Lucas Vazquez is used to setting up goals for Cristiano Ronaldo, and now he’s even assisting Cristiano Ronaldo Jr.
This is the nicest free-kick you will see all week.
The French outfit’s build-up play for Dimitri Payet’s goal against Athletico Bilbao was incredibly pleasing.
