13 things we loved this weekend: Saka, Fernandes, Ndombele, Grealish & more
Elsewhere, Jamie Carragher showed he hasn’t lost his competitive spirit and Jose Luis Chilavert had a typically quiet one.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
That laugh afterwards. We need to cherish this kid.

We’re still not even sure how he managed to pull this off.
Show me a better last-ditch challenge, I dare you 😉

You just know Big Sam is well aware of this fact too.
Sam Allardyce has now won more points at Anfield (5) since April 2017 than all 'Big Six' teams combined (4).
A third of all points won by visiting teams in that timeframe have been by teams managed by Allardyce. #LIVWBA

This year just keeps getting weirder.
What is former Hull, Russia + CSKA Moscow head coach Leonid Slutsky up to these days?
Oh, just singing Mariah Carey with his Rubin players. Genuinely must watch. https://t.co/dVYO2vj8v2
