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

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