19 things we loved this weekend: Pogba, Chalobah, Hazard, Memphis

Quick Reads

After thousands of fans returned to the terraces at the weekend, they were kept entertained with plenty of goals and drama. 

Bruno Fernandes inspired Manchester United to a 5-1 win against Leeds, while Barcelona kicked off the post-Lionel Messi era with a 4-2 win over Real Sociedad.

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


We’ve really missed scenes like this.

Eden Hazard

The start of his redemption tour?

Paul Pogba

Forget about the four assists, this was our favourite Pogba moment.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer

Absolutely brutal.

Mo Salah

Not bad for a ‘one-season wonder’…

Never give the ball away when Milner is on your team.

Haaland’s interviews are earning him as many headlines as his goals.

Mikel Oyarzabal

A free-kick that Lionel Messi would be proud of.


The winger isn’t ready to hang up his boots just yet.

Vinnie Jones will be proud of this.

Olivier Giroud

We can’t wait to see Giroud and Zlatan Ibrahimovic playing alongside each other.

That’s one way to announce your arrival at a new club.

Memphis Depay

He channelled his inner Dennis Bergkamp on his Barcelona debut.

Trevoh Chalobah

What a moment for the Chelsea academy graduate.

Alexsandar Mitrovic

That’s the Goal of the Season award wrapped up nice and early.


A winner in Fergie time for Darren Ferguson’s side.

The ultimate shithouse.

Bernardeschi won’t score many better than this in 2021-22.
