13 things we loved this weekend: Ramsey, Messi, Insigne, Alcacer & more
Liverpool v Manchester City may have been the headline match of the weekend – but it was Arsenal, Leeds United and Rangers men that caught our attention.
Aside from Riyad Mahrez’s late penalty miss, City’s trip to Liverpool failed to ignite, although there was plenty of excitement elsewhere.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field from around Europe.
We can’t help but really like Arsenal when they’re doing sh*t like this.
Introduced in the 59th minute with Borussia Dortmund trailing to Augsburg, he scored a hat-trick in a 4-3 win, including this stoppage-time winner. Wow.
A very aesthetically pleasing goal.
He’s quite good, isn’t he?
He’s still got it.
This is just really lovely.
A goal which is the epitome of ‘good touch for a big man’.
Why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Pontus?

This man is a modern-day hero.

Danger, high voltage
There were fireworks in Norway’s third division as defender Jonas Alexander Olsen hit some power lines with a clearance, causing an eye-catching display.
Spare a thought for Cyrus Christie. We’ve never seen a man backpedal forwards before.
Hearts’ offside trap
Liverpool loanee Ryan Kent will never score an easier goal.
