17 things we loved this weekend: Alisson, Torreira, Sancho & more

Quick Reads

The big story of the weekend in the Premier League was Liverpool going top as Manchester City lost at Chelsea – but as always there was plenty more that caught our eye.

Elsewhere, Spurs beat Leicester and Arsenal extended their unbeaten run to 21 games. On the continent, Lionel Messi and Jadon Sancho have been at it again.

Here are some our favourite moments from the weekend…

Juan Fernando Quintero

Not a bad way to win the biggest game in South American football.


Now we really want to see him jump next to Virgil van Dijk.

Lucas Torreira 

He doesn’t just stop goals, you know?

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Bloody hell.

Moussa Sissoko

We’ve all got that one mate.


Count the passes in the build-up to N’Golo Kante’s goal. It’s not just Manchester City who can do it…


Kyle Walker is quick, right? Just how fast was Willian running?

Raheem Sterling


Felipe Anderson

Every Monday, we like to watch a nice curler to cure our blues. This will definitely do the trick.

Lionel Messi

A trademark free-kick against Espanyol.

Lionel Messi again

He scored another one, too, and crushed Diego López to such an extent that Tom Victor wrote a full article about it.

Cristiano Ronaldo

That didn’t take long. Ouch.

Jadon Sancho

Is there anything this kid can’t do?

Riccardo Saponara

90′ + 9’…Sampdoria left it very late to equalise…and they clearly enjoyed it.

Atlanta United

They’ve only gone and won the MLS Cup in their second ever season…

Miss of the season?

Ah mate.

Harry Redknapp

Fair play, fella.
