15 things we loved this weekend: Alexander-Arnold, Wan-Bissaka & more
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.
Watching Sampdoria strikers score goals like this is a nice reminder Serie A can still be very sexy.
Considering PSG seemed to be really trying to f*ck themselves over at the start of this move, it’s absolutely lovely.
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.

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