13 things we loved this weekend: Eriksen, Payet, Can, Milner & more

Quick Reads

While we in England hunkered down to avoid Storm Ciara this weekend, the rest of Europe had plenty of fun with some ridiculous games across the continent.

Inter came back from 2-0 down to triumph 4-2 in the Milan derby, Borussia Dortmund were beaten 4-3 by Bayer Leverkusen, and Barcelona were 3-2 victors over Real Betis in a game featuring two red cards.

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

Emre Can

*holds R1 + shoot*

Marco Moncosu

Just sprint up to a free-kick and whack it into the top corner, fair.

Dimitri Payet

The king.

Christian Eriksen

Just imagine.

Fernando Marcel


Jeremy Mathieu

We didn’t expect him to do this.

Karim Benzema

Real Madrid’s unsung hero.


The former West Ham man has still got it at 38.

Djibril Sidibe

Ancelotti wasn’t happy with this.

Jesus Corona

Sure, Porto beating Benfica is big, but this nutmeg is even better.

Luis Diaz

Porto were very good at nutmegs this weekend.

Said Benrahama

You can see the exact moment Lewis Wing wants to go home.

James Milner

He’s still better than all of us put together.
