19 things we loved this weekend: Hazard, Suso, Sancho, Zlatan & more
Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal men all caught our eye in action this weekend.
Maurizio Sarri and Jurgen Klopp’s men continued their unbeaten starts to the Premier League season with a draw in the big game of the weekend – but there were plenty of highlights elsewhere.
We’ve rounded up the best moments on and off the pitch.
A silly goal, quite frankly.
The Belgian scored a brilliant goal himself in Chelsea’s draw with Liverpool and also had some nice words for his former team-mate Sturridge: “Maybe he’s trying to be like me.”

Robin van Persie
He’s still got it. F*cking hell, he’s still got it.
Robin van Persie, pt II
A late winner followed by an even later straight red card. A good afternoon’s work, Robin.
Fair play, mate.
We’re not actually sure if this is real life or FIFA.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic, pt II
Zlatan scored two in a 3-0 win for LA Galaxy and now has 20 MLS goals. Oh, and he also did this.

Hector Bellerin & Marc Navarro
The childhood friends completed one hell of a journey when they faced off in Arsenal’s clash with Watford.
Played together since we were 8 years old. We used to 1v1 in his grandmas garden for hours. Yesterday together on the same pitch in the @premierleague. Life is amazing. @MarcNavarro7 pic.twitter.com/odLLVsApKt

The Bolton winger celebrated his winner against Cardiff by running straight to Stephen Darby, who has had to retire after being diagnosed with motor neurone disease.

When Chris Kamara asked the former Leicester City defender how they won the title with that back for, Huth had a simple answer.
Paul Scholes, eat yer heart out.
No, not that one. We don’t remember that Nuno Valente scoring goals like this.
The best Premier League corner since Iago Aspas.
Our Rob, a Leeds fan, thinks this goal should have been ruled out because it was “unfair”.
Rob is happy enough for this one to stand, however.
The referee’s a…
A referee taking out three players in one go? Yes please.
Worth a watch for the look on the cheerleader’s face alone.
This is the greatest 20 seconds of football I have seen in my life. Just beautiful. pic.twitter.com/JGGdCrPcsh
