17 things we loved this weekend: Lukaku, Mane, Pogba, Chilwell, Ceballos

Quick Reads

Football in England returned this weekend and, true to form, none of the teams we support managed to win. It’s good to have you back, old friend.

Despite the personal misfortune of watching our own clubs, this is the happiest we’ve felt in months. The goals below will go a long way to explaining why.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.

Goncalo Guedes

Makes this look far too easy.


Berbatov, eat yer heart out.

Mathias Jensen

Oh, mate.

Sadio Mane

Too eager, Sadio.

Jules Kounde

The old FIFA trick.

Oscar Rodriquezย 

A silly goal.

Paul Pogba

What a pass.

Roy Keane

Is being a pundit good for his health?

Ben Chilwell

Good lord.

Craig Dawson

Things we didn’t expect to see.

Romelu Lukaku

A very nice goal, a very good celebration.

Robert Lewandowski

His numbers are getting sillier and sillier.



Denis Popov

A big weekend for the teenager.

Dani Ceballos

Genuinely impressive.

Samuel Di Carimine

We can’t begin to tell you just how much we love seeing goals being scored again.

Dodi Lukebakio

Eerily reminiscent of Dirk Kuyt stealing Luis Suarez’s wondergoal against Manchester United.
