11 things we loved this weekend: Milner, Mbappe, Alli, Merson & more

Quick Reads

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.

Kylian Mbappe

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.

Bruno Alves

A 37-year-old centre-back scoring a stunning late free-kick against AC Milan is Serie A at its finest.

Fernando Forestieri

You really shouldn’t shoot from that far out – unless you’re going to do this.

Marco Richter

Doing this at 5-0 up is akin to bullying.

James Milner

“Virgil [van Dijk] has been giving me plenty of stick for being old. So it was just one for him really.”

Paul Merson

Asked why Watford bothered appealing Troy Deeney’s red card, Merse applied Wayne Hennessey’s logic to excellent effect.

David Moyes

You know it’s bad when Moysey is bantering you off.

Real Betis

It’s impossible not to like Real Betis.

Sean Morrison

We still have no idea how this picture didn’t result in a goal.

Dele Alli

Sometimes you’ve got to ignore what the grown-ups want you to do.
