Planet Football โ€ข

Club football returned after the international break and there was plenty to sick our teeth into.

Bayern Munich and Bayer Leverkusen played out an entertaining early-season six-pointer on Friday night, kicking off an entertaining weekend that saw Brighton register another remarkable win at Old Trafford, Tottenham and Aston Villa pull off insane late comeback wins and Leeds come away from Millwall with a statement victory in the Championship.

Here are 15 of our favourite moments.

Alex Grimaldo

Xabi Alonso’s Bayer Leverkusen are a joy to watch.

Jamie Vardy

Pure unfiltered Vardy.

This Ronaldo free-kick

Oh dear.

Pedro Neto

Taxi for Joe Gomez.

Peter Crouch

A national treasure

Ange Postecoglou

One of the soundest blokes currently working in football.

Terem Moffi

The Nigerian looks like a player well worth keeping an eye out for.

This goal


These Millwall fans

Football at its finest.


That’s just filthy.

Billy Sharp

The self-styled ‘fat lad from Sheffield’ is killing it in America.

Folarin Balogun

His first goal since leaving Arsenal.


We’re delighted to see the ex-Newcastle man thriving at Madrid.

Mauro Icardi

Very impressive.

This tackle

Two for the price of one.
