13 things we loved this weekend: Rashford, Sterling, Pogba, Ramos…
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.
What a goal. What a celebration. So good we dedicated an entire article to it.
Yes, Paul Pogba got the goal, but it was all about Rashford’s assist.
Unbelievable from Rashford 🔥 pic.twitter.com/BhSG3jjOm5

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer
It’s comforting to know there’s not actually that much difference between us and the Manchester United manager.
Solskjær: "What would I have done today if I wasn't manager? I would probably have watched the game on telly, having some crisps and cake." #MUFC

Good lad, Andros.
Townsend chases a ball, keeps it in, but collides with a photographer. Andros maybe could have won the loose ball but checks to see if the photographer is ok. She is. Gent

Sounds like a conspiracy to us.
@oilysailor Neil etheridge's 3 saved penalties this season have been from players who share a name with a former US president: Wilson, Kenedy, Maddison.

Not bad for a fat lad from Sheffield.
Give yourself a pat on the back, Sergio.

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