Quick Reads

What a weekend of football, eh? That Kevin De Bruyne free-kick. That Spurs comeback. That Leeds late winner. All the while Newcastle and Arsenal turned on the style. 

And we were treated to some brilliant football in the Football League and Women’s Super League. There was also late drama across Europe, with further twists and turns in the Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A and Ligue 1 title races.

Here are our favourite moments from the weekend’s football.

Kieran Trippier

Casually done.

Jesse Marsch

The Wisconsin Alan Pardew

Lionel Messi

Yeah, we know he’s on here every week, but he’s on fire right now.


This would’ve been the assist of the season.

Gary Neville


Marcus Rashford

Who could begrudge the nicest man in football hitting a century?

 Ademola Lookman

He’s tearing it up for Atalanta.

David Luiz

Still winning.

Victor Osimhen

Napoli are the best team in the world, aren’t they? We think we might be serious.

What a hit, son.
