13 things we loved this weekend: Ramsey, Messi, Insigne, Alcacer & more

Quick Reads

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.

Aaron Ramsey

We can’t help but really like Arsenal when they’re doing sh*t like this.

 

Paco Alcácer

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.

Lorenzo Insigne

A very aesthetically pleasing goal.

Yann Karamoh

See above.

Lionel Messi

He’s quite good, isn’t he?

Gianluigi Buffon

He’s still got it.

Sofiane Boufal

This is just really lovely.

Tom Eaves

A goal which is the epitome of ‘good touch for a big man’.

Pontus Jansson

Why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Pontus?

Fortuna Dusseldorf

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.

Alex Iwobi

Spare a thought for Cyrus Christie. We’ve never seen a man backpedal forwards before.
