13 things we loved this weekend: Lacazette, Aguero, Hazard & more

Quick Reads

Arsenal, Manchester City, Chelsea and Leeds United men all caught our eye in action this weekend.

Liverpool’s trip to Arsenal was the headline fixture in the Premier League, but there were plenty of notable storylines around the world.

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

Arsenal

A classy touch.

Alexandre Lacazette

The striker is unstoppable right now.

Sergio Canales

A fitting way to end a six-goal thriller between Real Betis and Celta Vigo. The stunned reaction of the goalkeeper sums it all up.

Alessio Romagnoli

A second stoppage-time winner in the space of the week for the defender as AC Milan won 1-0 at Udinese with an incredibly FIFA goal.

Emanuele Giaccherini

Words can’t describe how much we love this own goal. And the striker’s smirk at the end.

Sergio Aguero

He’s been quite good, has Sergio.

Manchester City

A 6-1 win and even more super slick football. And then there’s this penalty box scramble.

The Hazards

A good weekend for the Hazard family.

Ciro Immobile

A volley will never not be pleasing.

Toni Kroos

Real Madrid secured their first win in five La Liga outings, and the midfielder showed some nice self-effacing humour on Twitter.

Leeds United

We felt sorry for Josh Windass at this point.

Rafael van der Vaart

The Holland legend announced his retirement this weekend and we got a little bit sad. We still absolutely love him.

Yeovil Town

Despite Yeovil losing 2-1 at Morecambe, one visiting supporter left with a classy touch.
