19 things we loved this weekend: Mane, Mendy, Fati, Ndombele & more

Quick Reads
Ansu Fati scores for Barcelona v Vlanecia in La Liga. October 2021.

Another act of dancing genius from Liverpool‘s Mohamed Salah stole the footballing headlines in England this weekend, but that was far from the only footballing moment of note.

Barcelona‘s Ansu Fati was proving once again just what a talent he is and there was a goal from a 15-year-old in the Portuguese Cup, as well as some spectacular strikes in leagues around the world.

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

Jurgen Klopp and Claudio Ranieri

Great to see the mutual respect between two iconic managers.

Sadio Mane

A brilliant achievement from the Liverpool forward.

Ibrahima Konate

Konate summed up every football fan after that Salah goal.

Tanguy Ndombele

Ndombele may be frustratingly inconsistent, but he can be so fun to watch.

Edouard Mendy

Chelsea had Mendy to thank for their three points at the weekend.

Mathias Jensen

An unorthodox yet brilliant piece of defending.

Ansu Fati

There’s just something special about Barcelona No.10s.

Matteo Guendouzi

The Arsenal loanee is ensuring that Mikel Arteta doesn’t forget about him.

Joe Hart

Ederson, eat yer heart out.

Aaron McCarey

Lee Bowyer v Kieran Dyer has nothing on this.

Gerard Moreno

Moreno showed Villarreal what they’ve been missing in recent weeks.

Luiz Felipe

Wonderful shithousery from the Lazio defender.

Kamaldeen Sulemana

We’d be amazed if Sulemana isn’t linked with a Premier League club in the near future.

Lucas Paqueta

Roberto Firmino would be proud of this no-look pass.

Andre-Pierre Gignac

It’s easy to see why Gignac is treated like a footballing god in Mexico. 

Carlos Fortes

The curl on this strike is unbelievable.

Roger Fernades

Born in 2005, already scoring in professional football.

Jordan Pickford’s water bottle

The England ‘keeper was caught cheating on the test.

This steward

We’ve seen it all now.
