17 things we loved this weekend: Aubameyang, Alisson, Sterling & more

Quick Reads

All the attention was on the Premier League this weekend – and Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester City men certainly caught the eye.

Sunday saw ‘Derby Day’ in England’s top flight as Arsenal beat Tottenham in a six-goal thriller and Liverpool stunned Everton with a late winner at Anfield.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field around Europe.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Oh yes.

Matteo Guendouzi

Something tells us he enjoyed winning the north London Derby.

Alisson & Joe Gomez

Divock Origi may have come up with the (hilarious) winner, but they Merseyside derby could have been so different had it not been for Alisson’s save and Gomez’s goal-line clearance.

Cengiz Under

Pick that out.

Raheem Sterling

He’s now got the joint most goal and assists in the Premier League. Remember when people thought he was overpriced?

Paco Alcácer

He’s scored a goal every 17 minutes as a substitute this season. Ridiculous. And what a run by Jadon Sancho.

Jadon Sancho

Talking of Sancho, if you haven’t seen that dribble yet, you really need to. We’re getting all giddy about him.

Leroy Sané

If ever there was a clip to sum up why Pep Guardiola’s teams are so successful…

Fabian Delph

How’s your touch, lad?

Callum Paterson

Yeah, Junior Hoilett’s goal was cool, but did you see Callum Paterson two-foot the ball into the net afterwards?

Harry Wilson

A very satisfying finish and yet another screamer for his goals reel on loan at Derby.

Pajtim Kasami

He’s at it again.

Ousmane Dembele

It came to nothing, like, but we enjoyed this.


Bit much, lads.

Caleb Ekuban

The on-loan Leeds striker was expected to miss Trabzonspor’s clash with Kayserispor after his mother passed away earlier in the week. Ekuban asked to play and came off the bench to score the opener and set his side on their way to a 2-0 win.

Claudio Ranieri

What a man.

Mike Dean

Keep up fighting the good fight, Mike.
