19 things we loved this weekend: Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, Dias & more

Quick Reads

Manchester City ended an 18-year wait to beat Liverpool at Anfield in style this weekend with a 4-1 win that takes them five points clear at the top of the Premier League. 

Elsewhere, Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic proved that they keep getting better with age, while the A-League provided plenty of entertainment.

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

Francisco Trincao

Trincao’s first Barcelona goal was definitely worth waiting for.

Jamie Carragher

We’ve watched this clip on a loop all morning.

Ruben Dias

That’s one way to marshal the defence.

Micah Richards

It’s safe to assume that Richards enjoyed Man City’s win over Liverpool.

Harry Kane

Not bad for a one-season wonder.

Sam Allardyce

Classic Big Sam.

Allan Saint-Maximin

Saint-Maximin was able to see the funny side after Paul Merson pronounced his name wrong.

Ilkay Gundogan

Gundogan made up for his penalty miss with two goals in the second half, so he was at least able to see the funny side.

Hannibal Mejbri & Amad Diallo

That’s just taking the p*ss.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Age is just a number for Ronaldo.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

An incredible milestone for Ibrahimovic.

Papu Gomez

Not a bad way to mark your Sevilla debut.

Adam Federici

We’ve got no idea how this doesn’t go in but the commentary makes it even better.

Keanu Baccus

There was nothing Federici could do about this one though.

This corner

Who cares if it didn’t result in a goal? This is amazing.

Memphis Depay

He’s becoming one of the best free-kick specialists in Europe.

Andrea Belotti

Fair play.

Mauro Icardi

We can only admire how innovative Icardi is for this goal.

Malachi Napa

What a strike.
