13 things we loved this weekend: The Ox, Ronaldo, Suarez, Buffon & more
Liverpool’s trip to Manchester United was the headline event in European football this weekend, with both sides having to settle for a point in the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
Elsewhere, Gianluigi Buffon rolled back the years for Juventus and Luis Suarez reached another landmark for Barcelona.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field from around the world.
Not the most popular man in Old Trafford, it seems.
These United fans weren't so welcoming after giving Ox shit when he was warming up 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/wXs3nN00cy

He was never going to stop at 700.
⚽ He wasn't going to stop at 700 goals! No. 701 brings Cristiano Ronaldo level with Gerd Müller!

Juve needed the old man to secure the points, though.

The little gestures go a long way.
A lot of people often question my sanity in travelling 450 miles to watch Stoke City, today justified why I do
