13 things we loved this weekend: Son, Rashford, Messi, Neymar, Alioski & more

Quick Reads

The good vibes continue at Tottenham under Jose Mourinho, while Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Marcus Rashford enjoyed a week to remember with Manchester United.

Elsewhere, Luis Suarez scored the best goal of his career and Craig Pawson witnessed the worst throw in he’s ever seen.

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

Luis Suarez

Suarez described this as the best goal of his career, and we’re not going to disagree.

Lionel Messi

A record-breaking 35th hat-trick in La Liga, in which he is now this season’s top scorer despite missing the first six games of the season through injury. The maddest thing is we don’t even bat an eyelid anymore.

Marcus Rashford

A fantastic impression of the Road Runner.

Son Heung-min

The original Sonaldo.

Jose Mourinho

It will obviously end in tears and acrimony, but it’s all really nice right now, innit.

Duncan Ferguson

This will make you feel warm on a cold Monday morning.


Fair play.

Craig Pawson

“That’s the worst throw in I’ve ever seen.” Tell that to Serge Aurier, mate.

Gjanni Alioski

The giddy hop at the end of his celebration with the fans is even better than his goal.

Grady Diangana

Bloody hell.

Wojciech Szczesny

Juve may have been beaten 3-1 by Lazio, but Szczesny deserves credit for this.

Luis Alberto

The Liverpool reject done good.

Gary Neville

Good lad, Gaz.
