17 things we loved this weekend: Pedri, Havertz, Messi, Richarlison…
All eyes were on the Etihad Stadium over the weekend as Manchester City drew 2-2 with Premier League title rivals Liverpool.
Elsewhere, Barcelona kept up their sensational run with a last-gasp winner away to Levante, the Serie A title race took more twists and turns as Milan and Napoli dropped points and PSG are finally starting to be as entertaining as they ought to be. There were plenty of great moments in England and further afield, too.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field.
Virgil van Dijk

He’s a right-back FFS!
44 – Since the start of 2018-19, Trent Alexander-Arnold has assisted more Premier League goals than any other player (44). His assist for Diogo Jota today means he has now set up at least one goal against all other 19 current Premier League sides. Unstoppable. pic.twitter.com/kiVtJFUJQz
