11 things we loved this week: De Gea, Alexander-Arnold, Ibrahimovic & more

Quick Reads

We enjoyed some season highlights from Liverpool and Manchester United players this week, while Everton and Burnley’s managers also made us smile.

As we now enter the final straight of the season, we’ve been spoilt for football this week, with Premier League fixtures taking place every evening.

There has also been plenty going on around the continent, and we’ve compiled some of the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Sean Dyche

Big Sean has got that Friday feeling.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

The Liverpool youngster has been tipped for a future in midfield, and you can understand why after watching this compilation of some of his best passes.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Ibrahimovic has been in Hollywood one month and he’s already appearing on Jimmy Kimmel.

Mats Hummels

The Bayern Munich defender proved he knows the score when he was asked whether Michy Batshuayi or Bejamin Mendy is the king of Twitter.

David De Gea

The goalkeeper was named in the PFA Team of the Year this week, and the stats truly underline his importance to Manchester United.

Clarence Seedorf

Okay, we completely didn’t realise he had been appointed at Deportivo, but it unsurprisingly turns out Seedorf is still cool as f*ck.


We can’t stop watching this gif. Now read Benedict O’Neill on the blonde prince’s brilliance.

Accrington Stanley

Who are they? Well, they’ve just been promoted to League One for the first time in their history, and it seems like Scott Brown enjoyed the party.

Lazaros Christodoulopoulos

A 93rd-minute bicycle kick to put AEK Athens into the final of the Greek Cup? Absolutely yes please.


We will never tire of watching a goalkeeper get chipped.

Sam Allardyce

It’s Big Sam’s world and we’re just living in it.
