17 things we loved this weekend: Wijnaldum, Eriksen, Aguero, Ronaldo

Quick Reads

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.

Georginio Wijnaldum

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.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Well out of order, that.

Mike Dean

Absolutely classic Mike Dean.

Marc-Andre ter Stegen

What a save.

Hugo Lloris

Sticking with the goalkeepers’ union, Lloris was back to his best to play a crucial role in Tottenham’s win over Leicester City.

Christian Eriksen

He makes this look far too easy.

Krzysztof Piatek

This is incredibly satisfying.

Antonio Rudiger

Admittedly the least he could do, but still.

Juan Quintero

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

Craig Cathcart

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

Rafa Benitez

That face tap.

Gareth Bale

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.

Luke Varney

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.

Manchester City

This is silly.

Sergio Aguero

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