13 things we loved this weekend: Guendouzi, Kane, Firmino & more

Quick Reads

When we woke up on Monday morning to compile this feature, we didn’t expect to find former Everton flop Apostolos Vellios had scored a goal worthy of the Puskas award.

And if that doesn’t get you excited, there was the small matter of the north London derby, some more ridiculous goals and a rather splendid update on Kyle Lafferty’s adventure in Norway.

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

Matteo Guendouzi

*That* assist.

Harry Kane

The man for the north London derby.

Iasmin Latovlevici

And the award for Goal of the Weekend goes to…

Apostolos Vellios

Forget what we just said, the actual Goal of the Weekend goes to…

Roberto Firmino

That awkward moment when you’re stuck between two team-mates who really aren’t happy with each other.

Josh Murphy

Not quite as good as Harry Arter getting sent off for diving, but still good.

Duvan Zapata

Who needs team-mates when you can do it all on your own?

Josef Martinez

The type of goal if you score on FIFA that suddenly has you thinking you’ve created Guardiola’s Barca Mk II.

Domenico Berardi

Everyone’s favourite Football Manager wonderkid.

Islam Slimani

He may have ended the game with a brace, but he still managed to be ridiculously unlucky.

This goal-line clearance

Just look at it.

Kyle Lafferty

Nice to see him doing well in Norway.

Inaki Williams

This stat makes us feel quite tired.
