13 things we loved this weekend: Messi, Kante, Lukaku, Silva, Vorm, Mbappe

Quick Reads

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.

Michel Vorm

Our favourite moment of the season, hands down.

David Silva

Congratulations, David.

Lionel Messi

Never not wonderful to watch.

Ivan Rakitic

Barcelona are fun, who knew?

As ridiculous as ever.

Two goals for the Manchester United striker saw him reach a remarkable landmark.

Jucie Lupeta

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.

Kylian Mbappe

The pass, the touch, the finish. Yes. We’ll forget the red card.

Fabio Quagliarella

You cheeky b*stard, Fabio.

Roberto Pereyra

There’s a lot to like about Watford so far this season.

We say it a lot about Athletico Mince, but if you know, you know.
