17 things we loved this weekend: Sancho, Neymar, Rashford, Lacazette

Quick Reads

We’re not sure what was in the water around Europe this weekend, but there seemed to be a ludicrous amount of brilliant goals scored across the continent.

In the Premier League we were treated to not one but two seven-goal thrillers, while there was also the small matter of Arsenal vs Chelsea.

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

Jadon Sancho

Before we get to all the goals, Sancho really is a ridiculous amount of fun.

Luis Muriel

Bloody hell.

Luis Muriel, again

Bloody hell, again. It was his debut, by the way.

Gaston Ramirez

Remember him?

Arkadiusz Milik

Honestly, Serie A was good fun this weekend.

Alexandre Lacazette

That’s a good goal, that is.

Marcus Rashford

That’s also a very good goal, that is.


And another! We enjoyed this one so much Tom Victor dedicated an entire article to it.

Robin van Persie

He’s still got it.

Diego Jota

A last-minute winner to complete your hat-trick, but that pass from Ruben Neves. Woof.

Kasper Schmeichel

And Neves almost added another wondergoal to his collection.

Salomon Rondon

Neil Warnock would not have approved of this kind of sportsmanship.


You can afford to do this when you’re on your way to a 9-0 win.

Matteo Guendouzi

A nice summation of the Arsenal midfielder.

Alireza Beiranvand

A massive f*ck off throw from the Iran goalkeeper. Nice one.

Thierry Henry

A night Titi will want to forget.

Onel Hernandez

It’s fitting a Norwich City player should provide such an #AccidentalPartridge.
