17 things we loved this weekend: Aguero, Sancho, Souness, Messi & more

Quick Reads

Another week, another Lionel Messi masterclass.

We honestly don’t expect to include Messi every week we compile these, but then he goes as does what he does and we can’t not include him.

Still, there was plenty of excitement elsewhere, and we’ve rounded up some of the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Lionel Messi

His Panenka free-kick was f*cking daft. As is the fact he’s now scored 40 or more goals for 10 seasons in a row. As was this dribble. Lionel Messi is f*cking daft.

Sergio Aguero

This is also f*cking daft.

Gregoire Defrel

There’s only 30 seconds gone, you’re playing Milan and Gianluigi Donnarumma has just gifted you a goal. Do you a) offer an embarrassed smile and raised hand before walking back to the halfway line or b) leap over the hoardings to celebrate wildly with fans? Choose B. Always choose B.

Paco Alcácer

He’s now the first player in Bundesliga history to score five or more goals in the 90th minute or later in one season.

Jadon Sancho

Another assist for the main man.

Karim Benzema

By scoring this beauty, Benzema has now netted against all 34 La Liga sides he has faced for Real Madrid.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

He scored later with a Panenka, but we really wish this went in.

Avilés Hurtado

Oh well, at least this happened in Mexico.

Diego Costa

This isn’t the Diego Costa we remember.

Rolando Mandragora

Oh my word.

Thomas Partey

Bloody hell.

Carlos Vela

*This* is how you complete your hat-trick.

Pedro Santos

This is now one of our favourite things we’ve seen on a football pitch.

Graeme Souness

When people ask what car we drive, we say “less of a Ferrari”.

Thomas Meunier

Tweets we never expected to see.

Ryan Kent

The Liverpool loanee managed to avoid getting sent off for flooring Scott Brown with a punch to the face and also scored this beauty.

Colin…Neil Warnock

*extremely Neil Warnock*

Russian kiss cams

Some things are more important than love. Sandwiches. Sandwiches are more important than love.
