11 things we loved this weekend: Klopp’s assistant, Rooney, Dembele

Quick Reads

Liverpool, West Ham and Manchester City men all caught our eye this weekend, while two former Manchester United players also made us smile.

The Premier League got underway this weekend as reigning champions City started off with victory at Arsenal, while there was also a host of other action around the world.

We’ve rounded up the best moments on and off the field.


Someone on the Liverpool bench was really excited about the start of the season.

Jurgen Klopp

Perhaps the aforementioned Liverpool coach could have done with copying Klopp’s celebration…

Wayne Rooney

He’s still got it.

Ousmane Dembele

He’s absolutely tw*tted that.

Bernardo Silva

He’s going to be a bit special this year, isn’t he?

Jack Wilshere and Mark Noble

Watching both midfielders getting hit in the b*llocks seconds apart from each other is strangely hypnotic.

Gianluigi Buffon

The PSG goalkeeper – it feels weird saying that – spared Thiago Silva’s blushes with a brilliant save from his own defender.

Memphis Depay

Aesthetically pleasing free-kick alert.

Rotherham and Ipswich

Supporters of both clubs paid tribute to Rotherham fan Barry Chuckle, who sadly passed away last week.

England Women Under-20s

There was a glitch in the Matrix as the young Lionesses beat Mexico 6-1.

Dele Alli

We can’t stop watching this.
