19 things we loved this weekend: Griezmann, Mbappe, Foden and more

Quick Reads

After a week that was dominated by the proposed Super League, normal service resumed across Europe over the weekend. 

Manchester City won the League Cup for a fourth year in a row, while Barcelona were handed the advantage in Spain’s title race after Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid both dropped points.

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

Allan Saint-Maximin

We really love him.

Erling Haaland

Probably not the best idea to give him an entire half to run into.

Steve Bruce

Alan Shearer’s comeback was pretty good too.

Dusan Vlahovic

We can see why Liverpool are reportedly interested in him.

Zander Clark

Incredible scenes.

Kylian Mbappe

That ball from Ander Herrera, though. *chefs kiss*

Troy Deeney

The Hornets couldn’t be kept down long.

Ezequiel Barco

MLS is back, baby.

Nani

The former Manchester United winger still loves scoring spectacular goals.

Antoine Griezmann

You’re not finding a sexier finish anywhere else in Europe this weekend.

Ondrej Duda

What a strike.

Konrad de la Fuente

The La Masia academy is a conveyor belt of talent.

Phil Foden

Twenty years old and already bossing cup finals at Wembley.

Fans

Celebrating in front of actual fans. We could get used to this.

Thomas Tuchel

A reasonable reaction, to be honest.

Neymar

Just to be clear, we love the nutmeg and not the ridiculous fall to the floor.

Marco Friedl

Friedl took an absolute battering.

Brondby

The fans are back in and making their voice heard.
