Quick Reads
Vinicius Jr of Real Madrid celebrates after scoring goal during the La Liga match between Real Madrid and Sevilla.

Chelsea’s 1-1 draw with Manchester United provided us with plenty of entertainment both on and off the pitch at Stamford Bridge.

Elsewhere, Palmeiras beat Flamengo 2-1 in the Copa Libertadores final and Erling Haaland showed Borussia Dortmund what they’ve been missing in recent weeks. 

We’ve rounded up the best of the action from the weekend.

Roy Keane and Jamie Carragher

The two pundits were at their box office best after Man United v Chelsea.

Gary Neville

Neville certainly enjoyed watching the debate from home.

Trent Alexander-Arnold

This is a brilliant achievement for most players, let alone a defender.

Diogo Jota

Unlike most players, Jota had a pretty good excuse for quitting a FIFA game.

Harry Kane

A brilliant gesture from the Tottenham captain.

Lionel Messi

After being criticised for his display against Manchester City, Messi had the perfect response.

Vinicius Junior

The Brazil international is in the form of his life this season.

Erling Haaland

That’s now 50 goals in 50 Bundesliga games for Haaland.

This fan

Not everyone was glad to see Haaland back from injury. 

Luis Diaz

There’s something special about a shot that hits the post before going in.

Sergio Ramos

Ramos made his long-awaited debut for PSG and didn’t disappoint.


A wonderful piece of shithousery in the Copa Libertadores final.

Dries Mertens

There was nothing the goalkeeper could do about this strike.

Edgar Barreto

Is somebody cutting onions?

Ben Halloran

There’s never a bad way to score a late equaliser but this was pretty special.
