15 things we loved this weekend: Tevez, Fernandes, Milner, Gilmour & more

Quick Reads

Manchester United‘s victory over Manchester City stole the headlines in the Premier League this weekend, leaving Liverpool just two wins away from winning the title for the first time in 30 years.

Elsewhere, Carlos Tevez was once again the hero for Boca Juniors, Billy Gilmour continued to take senior football by storm and Luke Ayling turned into Marco van Basten for Leeds United.

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

Jakob Glesnes

Bloody hell.

Jonjo Shelvey

It’s almost made even more beautiful by Newcastle missing the subsequent chance.

Carlos Tevez

You will be surprised to hear he really enjoyed scoring the goal that won Boca Juniors the league.

Bruno Fernandes

He’s already the main man at Old Trafford.

James Milner

What a man.

Billy Gilmour

He must be good if even Roy Keane likes him.

Badou Ndiaye

How to stop the opposition seeing your manager’s tactical instructions? Over to you, Badou.

Jerome Boateng

Sure, Thomas Muller scored, but would you just look at that pass.

Paulo Dybala

Poor Ashley Young.

Wisla Plock

Some classic Ekstraklasa.

Dusan Tadic

Don’t make him angry, even if you’re on his team.

Dean Henderson

England’s No.1?

The vicar of Sibley. (Doesn’t make any sense, but this is a good goal.)

Luke Ayling

Turns out Marcelo Bielsa has been playing Tony Yeboah at right-back.

Demba Ba
