Barcelona's Lamine Yamal celebrates scoring his side's first goal during a Spanish La Liga soccer match between Granada and Barcelona at Los Carmanes Stadium in Granada, Spain, Sunday, Oct. 8, 2023.

17 things we loved this weekend: White, Yamal, Giroud, Drury, Dean…

We were treated to some brilliant football before the club game takes a fortnight off for the international break.

Arsenal dominated the headlines after their first Premier League win over Manchester City in almost eight years, while Manchester United produced a 1999-esque comeback and Tottenham moved top of the table. There were also some brilliant games elsewhere in the Football League, WSL and Europe.

Here are some of our favourite moments from the weekend’s action.

Ben White

See yer.

Olivier Giroud

One of the very best things in football.

Jude Bellingham

We’re running out of words for this fella.

Lamine Yamal

La Liga’s all-time youngest goalscorer.

Brandon Williams

The Manchester United loanee produced the best solo goal of the weekend.

Son Heung-min

What a lovely fella.

Alphonse Areola

A lovely touch from the West Ham ‘keeper.

Serhou Guirassy

We love this fella blowing all of Europe’s biggest names out of the water.

Eli Junior Kroupi

Remember the name.

Mike Dean

Merse wasn’t taking any prisoners.

Peter Drury

Putting us to shame with those notes.


What a hit son.

Bryan Zaragoza

Rattling grown men. Masterful work.
