15 things we loved this weekend: Salah, Lanzini, Felix, Ziyech & more

Quick Reads

We’re not gonna lie, the international break felt like a bit of a struggle. Thankfully, the Barclays returned this weekend and remains as batsh*t mental as ever.

Aside from Spurs and West Ham playing out this week’s comedy clash, we were also treated to the Merseyside, Old Firm and Milan derbies.

And we’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field.

Manuel Lanzini

The Premier League just keeps getting sillier and sillier.

Goncalo Guedes

What. A. Hit.

Rafael Leao

This tackle is a work of art.

Rafael Leao stops Hakimi from r/soccer


Well, that is taking the p*ss, quite frankly.

Dani Alves

When we saw a highlight titled ‘Dani Alves free-kick’, we weren’t expecting this.

Barry Fry

Incredibly on brand, fair play.

Joao Pedro

What were you doing when you were 19? In fact, don’t answer that.

Alfredo Morelos


Florian Thauvin

Why couldn’t we see this Florian Thauvin at Newcastle?

Yussuf Poulsen

To do this at any point of a game is ridiculous. To do this a minute after coming on is absolutely outrageous.

Joao Felix

The best assist we’ve ever seen. Sort of.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin

Ever wondered what a world-class Kevin Davies would look like? We have our answer.

Mohamed Salah

Some record, that. Now how many more will he add to it?

Yannick Bolasie

Despite attracting plenty of criticism, Bolasie remains a force of positivity.

Hakim Ziyech

Amid Chelsea’ riches of attacking talent, some people were questioning whether they even needed Ziyech. A 15-minute cameo at the weekend showed he provides one key ingredient: sauce.
