15 things we loved this weekend: Henderson, Pepe, Dybala, Sancho…
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.
This is majestic. We love the man.
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.
We genuinely can’t decide whether we like the turn or the chip most.

Thirty-eight years of age and still scoring goals like this.
His team-mates certainly appreciated it.

This kid is good.
Sorry, Jørgen, but own goals will never not be funny. And this is a classic of the genre.

#FCURBL attendnace: 22.467
Stadium max capacity: 22.012
Reason, per Sky:
Fans that brought photos of deceased supporters that did not get to see #FCU in the Bundesliga paid the price of a ticket for the club to print the photos.
Union counted them as if they're in attendance. pic.twitter.com/B5xTgfBiEP
