17 things we loved this weekend: Aubameyang, Alisson, Sterling & more
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.
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.
Pick that out.
He’s now got the joint most goal and assists in the Premier League. Remember when people thought he was overpriced?
He’s scored a goal every 17 minutes as a substitute this season. Ridiculous. And what a run by Jadon Sancho.
Talking of Sancho, if you haven’t seen that dribble yet, you really need to. We’re getting all giddy about him.
If ever there was a clip to sum up why Pep Guardiola’s teams are so successful…
How’s your touch, lad?
Yeah, Junior Hoilett’s goal was cool, but did you see Callum Paterson two-foot the ball into the net afterwards?
A very satisfying finish and yet another screamer for his goals reel on loan at Derby.
He’s at it again.

It came to nothing, like, but we enjoyed this.
Bit much, lads.

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.
Caleb Ekuban lost his mother earlier this week. Today he played and put Trabzonspor ahead in the 82nd minute as they won 2-0. He burst into tears when he scored. Go and hug everyone you love. https://t.co/1W3NFzG3wQ

What a man.
Fulham fans sing, "Ranieri, he comes from Italy, he f*cking hates Chelsea".
Claudio isn't happy and signals them to stop.
