13 things we loved this weekend: Antony, Messi, Keane, Robben…

Planet Football β€’

We’re one set of matches closer to the end of the season and there was another major twist in the Premier League title race as Arsenal let a two-goal lead slip for the second match running.

Elsewhere, in Germany both Bayern and Dortmund dropped points to keep things neck-and-neck at the Bundesliga summit, while there were some outstanding moments in La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1.

Here are our personal highlights from a great weekend of football.

Antony

2023’s best new meme template.

Ollie Watkins

Unai Emery’s Aston Villa are on fire.

Xavi

We miss watching the maestro.

Lionel Messi

The sexiest one-two you’ll see all season.

Middlesbrough

Michael Carrick has Boro playing some lovely stuff.

Brighton

The least expensively-assembled squad in the league away to the most expensively assembled. Miraculous stuff.

Gary Neville & Roy Keane

Appointment viewing.

These physios

Evan Ferguson is 6’1″ and a big unit himself. Hench.

Arjen Robben

One player that you can’t imagine with the post-retirement timber.

Jese

Remember him!?

Cesar Montes

A relatively meaningless goal. But what a relatively meaningless goal.

Amahl Pellegrino

You won’t see a better goal anywhere this weekend. Take a bow, son.

This commentator

We’ve all been him. Wonderfully bitter stuff.
