13 things we loved this weekend: Haaland, Kane, Son, Neuer & more

Quick Reads

While Tottenham and Liverpool stole the headlines in the Premier League this weekend, plenty of exciting action took place around as elite club football returned.

Erling Haaland continued to make goalscoring look ridiculously easy, the Bundesliga gave us one of the greatest own goals of recent times and an epic penalty shootout unfolded in the MLS.

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

Erling Haaland

This guy isn’t human.

Harry Kane & Son Heung-min

Are Kane* and Son the pair to lead Tottenham to the title?


Who says Jose Mourinho’s sides don’t play good football?

Manuel Neuer

Not a bad response to conceding six goals with Germany.

Jeremie Boga

The goalkeeper doesn’t even move.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan

He never did this for Manchester United or Arsenal.

This own goal

We’ve only just stopped laughing.

Lewis Cook

Not a bad way to score your first goal in over four years.

Danny Rowe

A bullet from League Two.

This shoot-out

MLS in all its glory.

Giuseppe Raffaele

Italian coaches are wired differently.

Yussuf Poulsen

Why are finishes with the outside of the foot so much nicer?

Football’s new law

We wholeheartedly endorse this.
