11 things we loved this weekend: Fati, Mourinho, Liverpool, Luiz & more
Liverpool’s dominance of the Premier League was emphatically underlined this weekend, while we were also treated to some classic Jose Mourinho in Tottenham’s win over Manchester City.
Elsewhere, Ansu Fati continued to make playing for Barcelona look far too easy, and the Maldini name lives on at AC Milan.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
Possibly the most Jose Mourinho thing we’ve ever seen.
This is bloody brilliant. Mourinho was celebrating Lloris’ penalty save on Gundogan but then when he remembered Sterling had a yellow card and Mike Dean didn’t book him for the second time for the dive, he was absolutely furious.

The youngest player to score a brace in La Liga this century. That pass from Messi is worth watching on the replay too.
🔥 A quickfire double from Ansu Fati!
🔵🔴 The 17-year-old has Barca 2-0 up and in complete control
🤤 What a pass from Messi to set the first goal up too! pic.twitter.com/jrbf7dbUmX

22 – Liverpool will end today 22 points clear of second-placed Manchester City in the Premier League table; this is the biggest lead any league-leader has ever had at the end of a day in English top-flight history. Gap. pic.twitter.com/xgG4P8m3w1

What a pass. And what a miss.
Why couldn’t he have done this when we went to watch River Plate?
He may now play for Union Berlin, but he’s still loved by Borussia Dortmund.

🇪🇸 Future quiz question from La Liga 2; remember the name!
Fuenlabrada’s Cristobal Marquez got TWO red cards in today’s game.
68’: Receives straight red (reduced to yellow by VAR)
72’: Comes back out, gets straight into a fight with Granell and receives a second yellow! 🤯 pic.twitter.com/M5sOdGzZHS

He hit that really hard.
The most pleasing finish you will see all week.
