11 things we loved this weekend: Wijnaldum, Sancho, Evra & more

Quick Reads

All eyes in the Premier League were on Liverpool‘s victory over Manchester United at Anfield and a rather tense Sky Sports studio.

Elsewhere, Matt Ritchie left a Newcastle United supporter ruing their last-minute winner and Erling Braut Haaland marked his Borussia Dortmund debut with a bang.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Sophie Ingle

What a hit.

Georginio Wijnaldum

Spare a thought for Harry Maguire.

Jamie Carragher & Roy Keane

Right, come on lads. Tops off, have a wrestle in the car park.

Patrice Evra

It takes a brave/patient man to sit between Keane and Graeme Souness, but Evra equipped himself well.

Gary Neville

The way he regains his composure to start talking again is excellent.

Hans Vanaken

Paul Scholes, eat yer heart out.

Anderlecht VS. Bruges 1-[1] Hans Vanaken with an incredible volley from r/soccer

Theo Hernandez

The left-back is AC Milan’s top goalscorer this season.

Matt Ritchie

Keep your eye on the corner flag.

Erling Braut Haaland

He cannot be stopped.

Jadon Sancho

We reckon this lad might turn out to be alright.

This fan

Oh mate.
