13 things we loved this weekend: Messi, Milner, Lallana, Ibrahimovic & more

Quick Reads

Lionel Messi has been at it again for Barcelona, while Liverpool enjoyed a perfect couple of days of piss-boiling in the Premier League this weekend.

Thanks to a 95th-minute winner against Leicester City and Manchester City’s home defeat to Wolves, Liverpool are now eight points clear at the top of the table.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch around the world, starting with some more magic from Barcelona.

Luis Suarez

We said Suarez scored the sexiest goal of the week after his strike against Inter in the Champions League. We were wrong.

Axel Witsel

Suarez has some competition though.

Lionel Messi

He’s at it again.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

After turning 38 last week, Ibrahimovic celebrated in style.

Gonzalo Higuain

A nice way to move top of the table.

James Milner

95th-minute penalty to win the game followed by this celebration. The GOAT.

Adam Lallana

The surprise shithouse of the week – beating Andy Robertson (not literally). Sadio Mane’s reaction to Milner’s penalty is also lovely.

Carlos Vela

Breaking MLS’s record for goals in a single season with a stylish 34th.

Marten de Roon

He’s a good lad, is Marten.


Beating Celtic is a big deal, to be fair.

Dawid Szot

Our weekly installment of hilarity from the Polishย Ekstraklasa.


We’ve all been to plenty of games where this would have been the highlight.

The Longstaffs

A heart-warming start to the week.
