15 things we loved this weekend: Hazard, Mane, Messi, Grealish & more

Quick Reads
Eden-Hazard-Chelsea

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer suffered his first Premier League defeat as Manchester United manager this weekend, while Liverpool kept up the pressure on Manchester City in the title race.

While there was plenty of excitement in England’s top tier, Jack Grealish had a day he’ll never forget for Aston Villa and there were plenty of eye-catching goals on the continent.

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

Eden Hazard

The man makes football look far too easy. He’s now scored 50 home Premier League goals for Chelsea.

Jack Grealish

Now that’s karma.

Genki Haraguchi

When your luck’s out…

Lionel Messi

He could quite easily have had a penalty here but told the referee he hadn’t been fouled. Fair play. Although it’s not like he’s struggling for goals

Ciro Immobile

Speaking of which…

Raul De Tomas

It counted for nothing, like, but this was nice.

Lucas Biglia

This wasn’t the only great free-kick scored this weekend…

James Ward-Prowse

Told you.

Will Ferrell

You stay classy, Los Angeles.

Sergio Aguero

When one nutmeg just isn’t enough.

Bernd Leno

He was rather good for Arsenal on Sunday. But Sead Kolasinac was sick. Literally.

Dejan Lovren

Jordan Henderson’s laugh. Shaq, you’re a bad man.

Sadio Mane

This has gone under the radar a bit. What a season he’s having.

Keith Flint

A fitting tribute.
