15 things we loved this weekend: Alexander-Arnold, Wan-Bissaka & more

Quick Reads

All eyes were on Liverpool v Tottenham in the Premier League this weekend, but there was plenty of exciting action elsewhere around Europe.

While Manchester United enjoyed their own crazy game and Granit Xhaka told Arsenal fans to “f*ck off”, some of Europe’s biggest names came to the fore in the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Robert Lewandowski and Jan Oblak.

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

Manolo Gabbiadini

Watching Sampdoria strikers score goals like this is a nice reminder Serie A can still be very sexy.

Kylian Mbappe

Considering PSG seemed to be really trying to f*ck themselves over at the start of this move, it’s absolutely lovely.

Robert Lewandowski

Sure, he set a Bundesliga record for scoring in the ninth game in a row at the start of the season, but we’re more impressed by this.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

His cross was outrageous against Tottenham on Sunday.

Romario Moise

Trevor Sinclair, eat yer heart out.

Aaron Wan-Bissaka

A tackling machine.

Matteo Guendouzi

Some absolutely wonderful sh*thousery with a rugby tackle on Wilfried Zaha.

Frank Mulhern

Just your standard goal of the season contender scored in the Conference.

Cardiff City

Callum Paterson’s reaction sums it all up.

Bundesliga II

Got the ball, ref.

Montedio Yamagata

Scoring a goal from inside your own half is one of the rarest of treats. Doing so twice in 90 seconds takes the biscuit.

Shunsuke Nakamura

Staying in Japan’s second tier, Nakamura is still scoring belters at the age of 41.

Nottingham Forest

After their match with Blackburn was postponed, Forest didn’t want to see any food go to waste. This is A Good Thing.

Jan Oblak

F*ck, he’s good.
