15 things we loved this weekend: Son, Salah, Sancho, Jones, Verratti…
Liverpool may be streaking away at the top of the Premier League, but Jurgen Klopp’s men were stunned by League One Shrewsbury Town on Sunday.
Elsewhere, Jadon Sancho continued being brilliant at football, Marco Verratti made the most Marco Verratti tackle imaginable and Lucas Perez confused a Villarreal fan.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
A moment to sum up Liverpool’s second half against Shrewsbury.

Something tells us this Villarreal fan didn’t want the Deportivo striker’s shirt.

Visually very satisfying.
He’s outrageously good.
Jadon Sancho has now provided 25 league assists since the start of last season, more than any other player in Europe's top five divisions.

A poor man’s Maynor Figueroa.
😱 OUTRAGEOUS FROM ILICIC!
😍 The quick free kick from just inside the Torino half catches Sirigu off his line and flies into the top corner!
🙌 What an INCREDIBLE GOAL pic.twitter.com/mJtjrYjUyU

A bicycle kick goalline clearance? Yes please.
Contender for miss of the season.
Of course Jones got covered in mud. Of course he did.
Phil Jones enjoyed Tranmere's muddy pitch yesterday 😂 pic.twitter.com/GvPAjzidgE

You cannot argue with that.
Shout out to Mato Jajalo for his explanation on why Udinese lost this weekend: "The difference is that Parma scored goals and we didn't." pic.twitter.com/a2dsGbkRdr

After two Liverpool fans confused Genk with Gent earlier this season, they were invited to the match between the two Belgian clubs this weekend.

Last October, they ended up in @stadgent when they actually wanted to see @liverpoolfc play🆚Genk in the @championsleague 😅So to cheer them up, we invited them to our game against @krcgenkofficial tonight. Glad you made it this time Lee & Rob😁 Have a good one! #GntGnk #kaagent #lfc
Lazio fans win it all:
