13 things we loved this weekend: Messi, Kante, Lukaku, Silva, Vorm, Mbappe
Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham men all caught our eye this weekend.
In the final weekend of fixtures before the first international break of the new season, Watford caused the biggest surprise in the Premier League, beating Tottenham to maintain their 100% start to the campaign.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch from all around the world.
Our favourite moment of the season, hands down.

Never not wonderful to watch.
Barcelona are fun, who knew?
As ridiculous as ever.
Two goals for the Manchester United striker saw him reach a remarkable landmark.
Quite remarkable that Romelu Lukaku has scored as many Premier League goals (104) as Didier Drogba managed throughout his career. Lukaku’s 25-years-old.

We’re going to buy Olimpija Ljubljana shirts with Lupeta’s name on the back now.
Angel Di Maria
He scored directly from a corner and meant it. Fair play.
The pass, the touch, the finish. Yes. We’ll forget the red card.
You cheeky b*stard, Fabio.
Goal. Of. The. Season. Take a bow Fabio Quagliarella! 🔥🔥🔥 pic.twitter.com/yUjmPNEs74
