17 things we loved this weekend: Ronaldo, Traore, Moore, Marr…

Quick Reads

Manchester City lifted the Premier League trophy this weekend, while Chelsea and Liverpool tightened the race for the top four and West Brom kept their slim hopes of avoiding relegation alive.

On the continent, Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi both scored in Sunday’s El Clasico, meaning they have now scored over 1,000 goals between them for Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.

There was also a pulsating final day of the Championship season and some excellent celebratory scenes among our pick of the weekend’s action.

Cristiano Ronaldo

His goal against Barcelona took him to 450 in a Real Madrid shirt… in just 436 games.

Yacine Brahimi

Portuguese champions Porto defeated relegation-threatened Feirense 2-1, thanks to this gloriously-worked goal.

Oleksandar Zinchenko

The reactions to Zinchenko knocking over the Premier League trophy are just priceless. Keep an eye out for Kyle Walker.

Ibai Gomez

This is the type of aesthetically pleasing goal that you never get tired of seeing.

Pedro

We all had that one ridiculously keen team-mate on a Sunday morning.

In the (hopefully) pre-gravelly voice days…

Bolton

Fair play to Phil Parkinson’s men – two goals in the last five minutes to turn defeat into victory and stay in the Championship.

Middlesbrough’s player of the year carried a bag over to the travelling supporters at full-time yesterday, handing out signed t-shirts to young fans emblazened with the word “believe” ahead of their journey into the play-offs.

Darren Moore

West Brom’s caretaker manager is winning a LOT of plaudits for his efforts to stave off relegation, but just check out this ice cold reaction to his side’s 92nd-minute winner against Tottenham.

Charlie Austin

Being caught on camera getting blanked is never a good look.

Allison

What a save.

Bali Mumba

After John O’Shea was replaced, Mumba was handed the armband to become Sunderland’s youngest ever captain, before he’s even taken his GCSEs.

Manchester City fans

While Arsene Wenger set aside his personal rivalries to wish Sir Alex Ferguson well in his recovery at the start of his farewell speech, City fans on the pitch ahead of the Premier League trophy presentation unveiled this banner.
