17 things we loved this weekend: Insigne, Mané, Kante, Ornstein & more
The start of the Premier League campaign is now just two weeks away – and clubs are completing their final preparations ahead of the new season.
Pre-season friendlies are now starting to gain that extra edge and have more of a first-team feel about them, leading to a number of exciting fixtures over the weekend.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
We’d quite like Barkley to be good this season. This looks promising.
Barkley’s goal was almost as good as Reading’s opener.
A good man.

Not gonna lie, didn’t know he played for Norwich.
"As a footballer, scoring at any level, if it's in the season, pre-season or with your mates, whenever, it's what we love to do.
So any chance I get to score a goal is special and if I can continue that in the Premier League, we'll see."pic.twitter.com/SdEkRjmViU

We’ve only just seen this clip of the BBC’s transfer guru and it turns out there’s nothing he can’t do.
Now announce David Ornstein to Arsenal

Enjoy your week, you lot. (Best put your headphones in for this one if you’re in work.)
