13 things we loved this weekend: James, Lampard, Mbappé & more
The Premier League took a back seat this weekend as the FA Cup took precedent in England, while there was plenty of intriguing action across Europe.
A number of less-fancied sides have made it through to the FA Cup quarter-finals following the weekend’s results, with Chelsea and Arsenal still to play each other on Monday night.
We’ve rounded the best of the action on and off the pitch.
Still scoring goals like this in Mexico.
Six goals in his first five games for Milan now. It’s getting silly.
The oldest goalscorer in Bundesliga history thanks to a 96th-minute free-kick.
Turns out Mbappe counts his training goals, which makes us suspect he’s been chatting to Pele recently.
100 buts à l’entraînement 💯
Ouais le ridicule ne tue pas 😂🤣

There’s really no need, Kylian, you score enough.
Can you play him a bit more now, Pep?
This is what 99 pace looks like on FIFA.

We’re not sure when Norwich City became the new Barcelona, but nice one.
That left-back you always used to sign on Football Manager just scored this 93rd-minute winner.

Maybe don’t do this aloud if you’re sat at work.
