13 things we loved this weekend: Rashford, Sterling, Pogba, Ramos…

Quick Reads

Manchester United, Liverpool and Manchester City men caught our eye this weekend as the last football of 2018 was played.

United continued their resurgence under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, while Liverpool threatened to stretch their lead at the top of the Premier League, only for City to pull off an important victory at Southampton.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Roberto Firmino

What a goal. What a celebration. So good we dedicated an entire article to it.

Marcus Rashford

Yes, Paul Pogba got the goal, but it was all about Rashford’s assist.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

It’s comforting to know there’s not actually that much difference between us and the Manchester United manager.

Andros Townsend

Good lad, Andros.

Raheem Sterling

The Manchester City star’s one-year-old son is already a better footballer than you.

Neil Etheridge

Sounds like a conspiracy to us.

Billy Sharp

Not bad for a fat lad from Sheffield.

Sergio Ramos

Give yourself a pat on the back, Sergio.

Sergio Ramos, again

Someone unearthed this gem and we couldn’t not include it.

Serdar Aziz

We would like to introduce you to our new favourite player.

Neil Thompson

This touch from Sheffield Wednesday’s Under-23 boss is absolutely outrageous.


What a year.
