21 things we loved this weekend: Diaz, Salah, Mbappe, Noble & more

Quick Reads
Luis Diaz of Liverpool pictured with the FA Cup, Wembley Stadium, London, May 2022

All eyes were on Wembley at the weekend as Liverpool beat Chelse on penalties in the FA Cup final to secure their second trophy of the season.

Elsewhere, AC Milan moved a step closer to the Serie A title with a 2-0 win over Atalanta and Mark Noble made his last home appearance for West Ham United.

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

Luis Diaz

Nobody told the Liverpool winger that the FA Cup has a lid…

Trent Alexander-Arnold

We could watch this outside-of-the-boot pass on repeat all day.

Trent Alexander-Arnold x2

He’s 23 and has already won all six of the elite club trophies available to him. 

Mohamed Salah

A class gesture from the Egyptian king.

Sadio Mane

Mane really is one of the game’s genuine good guys.


Brilliant scenes.


Gary Lineker

He never misses an opportunity to wind up Alan Shearer about his lack of success in the FA Cup.

Kylian Mbappe & Lionel Messi

We really hope Messi and Mbappe are still on the same team next season.

Mark Noble

A fitting farewell for a West Ham legend.

Declan Rice

Rice treats a lot of Premier League midfielders like this.

Pontus Jansson

Jansson had the last laugh after Brentford’s 3-2 win over Everton.

Theo Hernandez

Hernandez channelled his inner-Messi against Atalanta.

Erin Cuthbert

While the men’s team lost to Liverpool, Chelsea Women did get their hands on the FA Cup.

Marcus Edwards

A stunning strike from the former Tottenham winger.

Thiago Almada

We’re not sure which is better. The first touch or the finish.

Shea Lacey

Remember the name.

This steward

Roy Keane will be proud of this tackle.

Toni Kroos

We have no idea why Manchester City have unveiled a Toni Kroos statue. 


Carlos Zambrano

Sensational shithousery.

Erling Haaland

We can’t wait to see Haaland doing this in the Ritz next season.

Josip Brekalo

There’s something extra special about goals that go in off the crossbar.
