19 things we loved this weekend: Rashford, Arteta, Firmino, Mbappe…
Elsewhere, Arjen Robben was back up to his old tricks, there were some international landmarks and Crawley Town’s manager provided the gloomiest post-match interview ever.
We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the pitch.
That’s just rude.
Stop it @Evra!

The commentary somehow makes this goal even better.

Robben coming in off the right wing to score with his left foot? Some things never change.

Rashford continues to show what an amazing person he is.
I would urge you to talk to families before tweeting. To this day I haven’t met one parent who hasn’t wanted or felt the responsibility to feed their children… https://t.co/J72VyRazbF

Most players don’t really care about pre-season friendlies. Son isn’t most players.
Here’s Sonny sprinting the length of the pitch in the 90th minute of a preseason friendly to clear the ball off the line, unreal. pic.twitter.com/3VvXnLl88i
