19 things we loved this weekend: Hazard, Suso, Sancho, Zlatan & more

Quick Reads

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.

Daniel Sturridge

A silly goal, quite frankly.

Eden Hazard

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.

Suso

Fair play, mate.

Arthur

We’re not actually sure if this is real life or FIFA.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

As we were saying…

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.

Wayne Rooney

Zlatan wasn’t the only ex-Manchester United striker at the double in MLS…

Jadon Sancho

We’re getting excited. So should you.

Hector Bellerin & Marc Navarro

The childhood friends completed one hell of a journey when they faced off in Arsenal’s clash with Watford.

Craig Noone

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.

Robert Huth

When Chris Kamara asked the former Leicester City defender how they won the title with that back for, Huth had a simple answer.

Nacho

Paul Scholes, eat yer heart out.

Nuno Valente

No, not that one. We don’t remember that Nuno Valente scoring goals like this.

Ashley Young

The best Premier League corner since Iago Aspas.

Adam Reach

Our Rob, a Leeds fan, thinks this goal should have been ruled out because it was “unfair”.

Mateusz Klich

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.

Air kicks

Worth a watch for the look on the cheerleader’s face alone.
