Marcelo Bielsa struggles to pronounce Ipswich, Chelsea’s dance moves are assessed by a professional, and Luis Suarez gets a taste of his own medicine – all in Social Shots.
In our brand new regular feature, we take a look at the best social media posts from across the world of football in the past 24 hours. Football and social media can go hand in hand, but not everyone gets it right. Here, we celebrate those that do, highlighting the posts that have made us chuckle, the videos of wonder goals that we’ve just had to watch again, or just anything we felt simply had to be shared….
Bielsa in ‘Ispich’ gaff
The level of detail Marcelo Bielsa goes into when preparing for games is extraordinary. The Leeds boss makes sure he knows as much as possible about their opponents before they play them. So you’d think that would also include how to pronounce their name…

Harry Kane impression
Saturday saw Tottenham Hotspur lose at their new stadium for the first time, to rivals West Ham. And it gave one Hammers fan the chance to poke fun at Harry Kane with this great impression 😂

Aguero fulfills destiny
Sergio ‘Kun’ Aguero’s goalline technology assisted winner against Burnley on Sunday appears to have fulfilled an ancient prophecy from China 🔮
Kun Aguero's goal adjudged to be 2.951cm over the line.
The cun, a traditional Chinese unit of measurement, equated to exactly 2.951cm before the year 565.
Just let that sink in for a moment.https://t.co/RlXL3Lftww

Sevilla make CL request
Losses for Arsenal and Spurs at the weekend, coupled with the draw between Chelsea and Man Utd – sometimes it seems like no-one in the Premier League top four race really wants to qualify for the Champions League this season. Meanwhile, in Spain, Sevilla are embroiled in their own battle to qualify for the competition, so thought they’d make a request.
Yo @premierleague, if none of your teams want 4th place could you just give it to us? Would make life easier 😉🇪🇺

Kompany challenges Sterling
Raheem Sterling was named the PFA Young Player of the Year last night, despite being 24 years old. And his teammate Vincent Kompany, 33, thinks that if that still counts as young, then he could have been in with a chance of winning it too.

“Rudiger would do alright on Strictly, I reckon”
To celebrate International Dance Day, Chelsea asked Strictly Come Dancing‘s Kevin Clifton to rate the dance moves shown by the club’s stars over the years. Antonio Rudiger gets a glowing report, but Clifton wasn’t impressed with Guus Hiddink…
'Like your dad dancing after a few too many drinks at the end of a wedding.' 😂
