13 things we loved this weekend: Gervinho, Sterling, Hazard, Elneny

Quick Reads

While all eyes were on Manchester United vs Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend, former Gunners flop Gervinho stole the show in Serie A with a superb display at the San Siro.

Elsewhere, Mats Hummels made the case for winding down his career as a playmaker and Matheus Cunha continues to provide lots of fun in the Bundesliga.

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

Micah Richards

The more we see of Richards these days, the more we absolutely love him.

Mo Elneny

A ridiculous effort in the 91st minute, made all the better by Victor Lindelof’s head nearly falling off.

Mats Hummels

Pass of the weekend?

Matheus Cunha

Or is this the pass of the weekend?

Michael de Leeuw

F*ck knows what the keeper is doing, but what a hit.

Lucas Torreira

There’s a lot to enjoy about this goal.

Raheem Sterling

He really is very good.


Just when you think 2020 couldn’t get any weirder, Gervinho scores a brace at the San Siro, including this beauty.


*Mike Bassett narrator voice*: Huesca go on to lose 4-1.


Fair play to the goalkeeper for not immediately having a breakdown on the spot once the ball goes over his head. That is undoubtedly what we would have done.

Phil Foden

Crossbar challenge? Piece of piss, mate.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

It’s hard to argue with that.

Eden Hazard

He’s back, and we’re so happy.
