Quick Reads
Neymar celebrates after scoring in the match between Paris Saint-Germain and FC Lorient on April 3, 2022 at Parc des Princes stadium.

This weekend, Liverpool and Manchester City both picked up where they left off before the international break to maintain the thrilling Premier League title race.

Elsewhere, Celtic came from behind to beat Rangers 2-1 at Ibrox and move six points clear of their rivals at the top of the Scottish Premiership.

Neymar can make football look way too easy.

This is just ridiculous.

Kane now loves an assist almost as much as he loves a goal.

A stunning performance from a wonderful midfielder.
