17 things we loved this weekend: Robertson, Messi, Aubameyang…

Quick Reads

All eyes were on Tottenham‘s north London derby win over Arsenal in the Premier League this weekend, while Liverpool dropped points for the first time at Anfield this season and Leeds United moved another step closer to ending their 16-year exile out of the top flight.

Elsewhere, you will be surprised to hear Lionel Messi is still incredible.

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