13 things we loved this week: Icardi, Pickford, Rooney, Ter Stegen & more
Club football made a welcome return this weekend following the international break – and Inter, Everton and Barcelona men were among those to catch our eye.
Chelsea and Manchester United faced off in an explosive clash at Stamford Bridge in the Premier League, while there was also the small matter of the Milan derby in Serie A.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
A 92nd-minute winner in the Milan derby? Yes please.
Wazza bagged another two goals as DC United beat New York City 3-1. The side who were bottom of the table when he joined have now secured themselves a play-off spot.
Admittedly, neither of Rooney’s goals were as good as his team-mate’s.
ENGLAND’S NO.1, ENGLAND’S ENGLAND’S NO.1.
Okay, the fact he was sent off for diving moments after scoring this spoils it slightly.

Meet Federico. He plays for Columbus Crew and really, really likes chipping goalkeepers.
He’s playing for Vancouver Whitecaps now, did you know? And he’s scoring f*cking screamers.
He’s actually still a Southampton player, did you know? But he’s back at Feyenoord on loan and scoring f*cking screamers.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen
This is special.
Marc-Andre ter Stegen, again
So is this.
We support Atalanta now.
The Portuguese third-tier outfit were beaten 3-1 by CD Aves, but they managed to score the best goal you will see all weekend.
The magic of the cup.
Surely the goal of the round in @EmiratesFACup Fourth Round Qualifying.
Take a bow, @benharris0808 👏
