11 things we loved this weekend: Milner, Mbappe, Alli, Merson & more
Liverpool and Manchester City refuse to blink in the Premier League title race, while PSG and Juventus wrapped up their own respective league triumphs this weekend.
Elsewhere, there were a spate of brilliant goals around Europe and our Rob had a nervous breakdown about Leeds United’s promotion chances.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch this weekend.
A hat-trick against his former club as PSG claimed the Ligue 1 title, clocking 38km/hr in the process of scoring his first.
Stephan El Shaarawy
This is one way to silence the San Siro.
A 37-year-old centre-back scoring a stunning late free-kick against AC Milan is Serie A at its finest.

Doing this at 5-0 up is akin to bullying.
“Virgil [van Dijk] has been giving me plenty of stick for being old. So it was just one for him really.”

You know it’s bad when Moysey is bantering you off.
When was the last time, David Moyes, you saw a United performance as poor as that?
Moyes: ‘Well, I think it was a long time. Folk might go back to some of my performances with United, but I’ve got to say I hope I wasn’t as bad as that.’ #EVEMUNhttps://t.co/0l3rK9OvRq pic.twitter.com/p20jw79PmU

We still have no idea how this picture didn’t result in a goal.
Sometimes you’ve got to ignore what the grown-ups want you to do.
