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.
The man makes football look far too easy. He’s now scored 50 home Premier League goals for Chelsea.
Now that’s karma.
When your luck’s out…
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…
Speaking of which…
It counted for nothing, like, but this was nice.
| GOAL! |
The upset is on at Camp Nou!
