15 things we loved this weekend: Henderson, Pepe, Dybala, Sancho…

Planet Football โ€ข

Liverpool and Arsenal maintained their perfect starts in the Premier League over the weekend, while the action got underway for the season in Spain and Germany.

Manchester City dropped their first points of the season as they were held to a 2-2 draw by Tottenham at the Etihad, while Barcelona were shocked by Athletic Bilbao in their opening La Liga game.

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

Bernardo Silva

This is majestic. We love the man.

Jordan Henderson

Virgil van Dijk offered to give Henderson the captain’s armband when he came off the bench for Liverpool, but leaders don’t need an armband to lead.

Bernd Leno


Paulo Dybala

We genuinely can’t decide whether we like the turn or the chip most.

Paco Alcacer

The old Sancho-Alcacer combination is back with a bang.

Aritz Aduriz

Thirty-eight years of age and still scoring goals like this.

Athletic Bilbao

His team-mates certainly appreciated it.

Joao Felix

This kid is good.

Jรธrgen Skjelvik

Sorry, Jรธrgen, but own goals will never not be funny. And this is a classic of the genre.

James Milner

We love the man.

This Everton fan

Football’s ace.

Ivan Cavaleiro

We could watch this goal all day.

Troy Parrott

You can see why Spurs fans are getting excited about the youngster.

Union Berlin

Your new favourite team.

Nutmeg of the Season has been won already.
