Nine things we loved this weekend: Sancho, Coutinho, Mane, Foster & more
Liverpool continued their relentless pursuit of the Premier League title this weekend, although there were a couple of touching moments involving their opponents Watford.
Elsewhere, we’re delighted to inform you Italian football is completely batsh*t even at under-16 level.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
Goal of the weekend.
Actually, is this goal of the weekend?

We reckon he enjoyed Karim Benzema’s late equaliser.

Even at under-16 level, it’s ridiculous. The goal is an absolute rocket too.
Incredible scenes during Sassuolo vs Juventus U16: Juventus have three players sent off in the space of a minute including the keeper & a Juve outfield player is forced to go in goal. Sassuolo then score with the final kick of the game to make it 3-3. from r/soccer
One of the good guys.
Not enough positive stories get published about sports stars but take a minute too read this and appreciate the kindness of @WatfordFC ‘s Ben Foster and his family, amazing ❤️👏🏽 pic.twitter.com/aSNrnG3jJK

This thread is worth your time.
With this in mind, who were the terrible teams in objectively gorgeous kits? https://t.co/a3nITgBuzf
