15 things we loved this weekend: Son, Salah, Sancho, Jones, Verratti…

Quick Reads

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.

Mo Salah

A moment to sum up Liverpool’s second half against Shrewsbury.

Son Heung-min

So close.

Son’s funny moment during Southampton warmup from r/coys

Lucas Perez

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

Neymar

Visually very satisfying.

Jadon Sancho

He’s outrageously good.

Josip Ilicic

A poor man’s Maynor Figueroa.

Marco Verratti

Seems fair.

Haris Vuckic

The former Newcastle prospect done good.

This ref

FORGOT YER CARDS, REF? Well…yeah, actually.

Oren Britton

A bicycle kick goalline clearance? Yes please.

Haris Seferovic

Contender for miss of the season.

Phil Jones

Of course Jones got covered in mud. Of course he did.

Mato Jajalo

You cannot argue with that.

Gent

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

Lazio

Fair play.
