Nine things we loved this weekend: Guardiola, the Ox, Cahill & more
Liverpool, Chelsea and Leeds players all caught our eye over the weekend, while we had to have a laugh at Manchester City’s manager.
Borussia Dortmund vs Schalke
The hosts were leading 4-0 at half-time in the Revierderby and were so confident they even tweeted out a piss-taking gif, only for Schalke to storm back to draw 4-4 with a 94th-minute equaliser.
Football, bloody hell.

His dad was a bit special, and Justin Kluivert seems to be a chip off the ol’ block judging by this hat-trick.

We’re big fans of pointless stats, and here’s a good one from this weekend.
2 – Lewis Dunk is the first player in Premier League history to score an own goal versus both Man Utd and Man City in the same season. Slam.

The Chelsea defender attempting a rabona cross goes exactly as you would expect. Who would have thought it?
The Leeds United goalkeeper was struggling to see due to the sun in the first half of their 2-0 win at Barnsley.
Thankfully, one Whites supporter came to the rescue to lend the German his cap. And Wiedweld showed his appreciation by gifting the fan his shirt at the end of the match.
We really, really wish he lent him a CP hat complete with goggles.

The Ox probably thought it would be easier to flog one of his own shirts in the Liverpool store.

When you speak so many languages as Pep, it must be easy to get confused.
Following Manchester City’s win at Huddersfield, Guardiola was asked a question in Catalan but responded in English. His reaction when he realised his mistake was priceless.
This is excellent. Guardiola’s reaction to being told City broke a 22-year-old record at Huddersfield: swears in Catalan, answers in English by mistake, swears in English 😂 “oh fuck!” pic.twitter.com/KO4nlr4ABS

Get into ’em
This weekend marked the anniversary of one of English football’s most iconic moments.
12 years to the day since Brentford and Scunthorpe played out the most your Dad sequence of events ever to take place on a professional football pitch. 9 crunching tackles in 17 seconds. pic.twitter.com/qYx6R2B6v4
