17 things we loved this weekend: Wijnaldum, Eriksen, Aguero, Ronaldo
Liverpool and Manchester City matched each other blow for blow in the title race once again, while Tottenham kept up the pressure with a nervy win.
Meanwhile, on the continent, Real Madrid triumphed against city rivals Atletico and Cristiano Ronaldo impressed for Juventus.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
A man of the match display and a superb goal all while suffering from the sh*ts. He’s starting to get the recognition he deserves.
Well out of order, that.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen
What a save.
Sticking with the goalkeepers’ union, Lloris was back to his best to play a crucial role in Tottenham’s win over Leicester City.
He makes this look far too easy.
This is incredibly satisfying.

Admittedly the least he could do, but still.

He really, really, really shouldn’t be scoring from here.

A no-look backheel pass to help set up Watford’s win over Everton. He’s a centre-back FFS.

Put the seal on a 3-1 win for Real – his 100th goal for the club – then made the Atleti fans go absolutely mental. Just what you want in a derby.

Paul Pogba would be proud of this penalty from the Brazil Under-20s player.
The former Blackpool and Leeds striker was named Cheltenham’s Player of the Month for January and was awarded with a voucher for a cheeky Nando’s.
This is silly.
Manchester City beats Chelsea 6-0 to take over the top spot in the Premier League table.
Since the calendar flipped to 2019, Man City has scored 42 goals in all competitions, more than twice as many as any other Premier League team (Tottenham has 20 and Wolverhampton has 17). pic.twitter.com/rg179MuL1w

An 11th Premier League hat-trick to equal Alan Shearer’s long-standing record. F*cking hell he’s good.
Actually, he’s rubbish.
