13 things we loved this weekend: Salah, Bielsa, Vardy, Ben Arfa & more

Liverpool on fire, Jamie Vardy having a party and Leeds United boiling p*ss – well, that was quite a fun weekend.

As Liverpool and Manchester City yet again went blow for blow in the title race, there was a huge upset in France as Rennes came back from 2-0 down to stun PSG in a crazy and controversial French Cup final.

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

Marcelo Bielsa

Start your week off right by listening to Bielsa trying to pronounce Ipswich.

Benat Etxebarria

F*cking hell.

Radja Nainggolan

F*cking hell, again.

Hatem Ben Arfa

Ben Arfa helped Rennes upset his former club PSG in the French Cup final and made a point of shaking hands with the Paris club’s owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi – much to the disdain of Al Khelaifi. Well in, Hatem.

Loris Karius

We’re not saying the goalkeeper is unlucky, but he’s even having his penalty saves overturned by VAR now. (The second attempt was scored.)

Kingsley Coman

When you break clear with the score 1-1 in the 95th minute knowing a win will move you four points clear in the title race, don’t do this.

Pablo Fornals

You’re not supposed to score with a rabona at 0-0.

Richard Stearman

The defender definitely enjoyed Sheffield United’s promotion to the Premier League.

FC Basel

The supporters have taken a stand.


A cheeky free-kick routine which we really wish had worked.

Jamie Vardy

What a record.

Andy Robertson

Jurgen Klopp’s best signing as Liverpool manager?

Mo Salah

He’s quite good, isn’t he?


He didn’t have much to do against Huddersfield, but Virgil van Dijk kept the goalkeeper on his toes.
