13 things we loved this weekend: Lacazette, Aguero, Hazard & more
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.
A classy touch.

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.
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.
Words can’t describe how much we love this own goal. And the striker’s smirk at the end.
He’s been quite good, has Sergio.
150 – Sergio Aguero has scored his 150th Premier League goal in his 217th appearance – only Alan Shearer (212 games) has scored 150 in fewer games in Premier League history. Outstanding. pic.twitter.com/TqiC489TSv

A 6-1 win and even more super slick football. And then there’s this penalty box scramble.
A good weekend for the Hazard family.
Pretty unique. Three brothers involved in a goal in the same weekend in a top 10 league:
🇧🇪 Kylian Hazard (Cercle Brugge)⚽️
🇩🇪 Thorgan Hazard (BMG)⚽️⚽️
🏴 Eden Hazard (Chelsea) 🅰️

A volley will never not be pleasing.
Real Madrid secured their first win in five La Liga outings, and the midfielder showed some nice self-effacing humour on Twitter.

We felt sorry for Josh Windass at this point.
Just saw this from Leeds players. Any team/individual from any club take a look. This is what you call desire if you are unsure what the meaning is. Brilliant 👌👌 pic.twitter.com/X2XiuL68AT

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

Despite Yeovil losing 2-1 at Morecambe, one visiting supporter left with a classy touch.
Big thanks to the @YTFC supporter who went round after the game and picked up all the litter from the away section. 👏👏👏
