15 things we loved this weekend: Balotelli, Sturridge, Beckham…
There were some big results at the top of the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga over the weekend – and as always there was plenty more which caught our eye.
Manchester City moved to the top of the table in England as Liverpool were held at Everton, while Bayern Munich drew level on points with Borussia Dortmund in Germany, and Barcelona again beat Real Madrid in the latest Clasico.
Here’s our pick of the weekend action…
