18 things we loved this weekend: Gerrard, Martial, Messi, Mbappe & more

Quick Reads

Manchester United stole the show in the Premier League this weekend by ending Manchester City‘s remarkable 21-game winning run with a 2-0 win at the Etihad.

Elsewhere, Rangers ended their 10-year wait for the Scottish title and Bayern Munich came from 2-0 down to beat Borussia Dortmund 4-2 in the Der Klassiker.

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field from around the world.

Steven Gerrard

We reckon he enjoyed his first league title.

Kemar Roofe

Monday morning’s hangover is going to be well worth it.

Anthony Martial

Martial was back to his best in the Manchester derby.

Eric Bailly

Bailly is one of the funniest players in football. 

Harry Kane & Heung-Min Son

They continue to be the deadliest duo in the Premier League.

Erling Haaland

It took him less than two minutes to score against Bayern. Of course it did.

Robert Lewandowski

Lewandowski was never going to let Haaland take centre stage.

Daryl Dike

We’re well up for Premier League Barnsley.

Ilaix Moriba

The La Masia academy keeps on producing special players.

Lionel Messi

We could watch this assist on repeat all day.

Yannick Carrasco

There are few things better than a cheeky nutmeg.

Luis Suarez

We still can’t believe Barcelona let Suarez join Atleti.

Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe shouldn’t be this good at 22.


Match of the Day

They couldn’t help but poke fun at Alexandre Lacazette.

Roy Keane

Micah Richards made this far too easy for Keane.

Jamie Carragher

From mentality monsters to mentality midgets.

Rade Krunic

What a strike.

Paulo Otavio

The most cynical tackle you’ll ever see. Fair play to the lad.
