17 things we loved this weekend: Sancho, Neymar, Rashford, Lacazette
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.
Before we get to all the goals, Sancho really is a ridiculous amount of fun.
Luis Muriel, again
Bloody hell, again. It was his debut, by the way.
Honestly, Serie A was good fun this weekend.
That’s a good goal, that is.
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.

A last-minute winner to complete your hat-trick, but that pass from Ruben Neves. Woof.
And Neves almost added another wondergoal to his collection.
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.

A nice summation of the Arsenal midfielder.
I like Guendouzi. He is, in the best sense, a bit of an arsehole. Arsenal haven’t had a good arsehole for some time. They’ve had dickheads. But that’s not the same thing.

A massive f*ck off throw from the Iran goalkeeper. Nice one.
A night Titi will want to forget.
Thierry Henry's Saturday night:
😯 Told Strasbourg player Kenny Lala his grandma's a whore
😡 Launched an attack on VAR

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