Liverpool maintained their perfect start in the Premier League at the weekend, but things aren’t going quite so smoothly for Barcelona in La Liga.

Barça were beaten 2-0 at Granada on Saturday and have only seven points from their first five games of the season, which is their worst league start for 25 years.

And, as always, there was plenty of other drama going on around the world which you might not have been aware of.

Trent Alexander-Arnold


Andy Robertson

Nobody would have blamed him if he’d just belted it.

N’Golo Kante

OK, it counted for nothing. But we love this man.

Mohamed Salah

One-season wonder.

Nicolas Pepe

A no-look bicycle pass. Haters will say he didn’t mean it.

Mahmoud Gad

Manuel Neuer, eat your heart out.

Timothy Castagne

Ninety-fifth minute. Keeper up. Edge-of-the-box volley from your right-back. Yes, yes, yes.


That’s some team goal.


He’s done it again.

Matías Britos

This was in the second division in Mexico.

Jesus Jiminez

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: the Polish league is amazing.

Grady Diangana

Five defenders? No problem.
