Nine things we loved this week: Pogba, Milner, Batshuayi & more
The international break can be a tough time for fans who yearn for the constant buzz of club football.
However, we’ve picked out nine moments which you may or may not have missed to show there was still plenty to enjoy.
Most people would probably imagine James Milner as something of a statto, the sort of person who could tell you not only the goalscorers but the minutes in which they scored from a game five years ago.
Well, as he continues to chip away at the ‘boring’ tag on Twitter, he’s now ended another myth with a horrific performance in a quiz against Adam Lallana.
Pogba is seemingly fighting to save his Manchester United career, but he was one of several players to do their club chances no harm over the international break, capping an excellent performance against Russia with this free-kick.

Batshuayi has quickly become one of our favourite players since joining Borussia Dortmund – and not just for his displays on the pitch.
Kevin de Bruyne, Kyle Walker and Nicolas Otamendi dished the dirt on their Manchester City team-mates, and a surprise name was voted for the player who eats the most in the canteen.
Fair play to United, who are offering season tickets to 18-25 year olds in the Stretford End at almost half the price as an adult would pay in a bid to improve atmosphere.
Hopefully it’s the sign of things to come.
United doing £285 season tickets for 18-25 year olds is class, rate that highly #MUFC

You remember him, don’t you? Well, you probably don’t remember him doing stuff like this.

Big Mick has confirmed he will leave Ipswich Town at the end of the season, but he will always be our mate.
Gabriel Jesus scored the only goal as Brazil beat Germany 1-0 in Berlin on Tuesday night, but it was this brilliant passage of play involving Philippe Coutinho and Paulinho that caught our attention most.
