Bukayo Saka TEAMtalk

Arsenal starlet Bukayo Saka explains a ‘little chilli’ after the win over Newcastle on Sunday and Moussa Marega walked off the pitch after being subjected to racist abuse, all in Social Shots.


In our weekly feature, we take a look at the best social media posts from across the world of football over the weekend. 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…


Ref disallows goal; Doesn’t know why

Another weekend. Another controversy. Mike Dean’s less than convincing answer to Conor Coady during Friday’s Wolves v Leicester City clash pretty much sums up the state of VAR.

The 4-4 draw that had everything

It was all a little too quiet on the Premier League front on Saturday. Not so in France as Amiens played out a stone cold thriller with Ligue 1 leaders PSG.

A little bit of love goes a long way

They say there is no friend like an old friend. A touching embrace between Jose Mourinho and his old Chelsea general John Terry before kick-off on Sunday. When the dust settled though it would be Mourinho who was the one left smiling.


Fears over £40million man continue to grow

Newcastle striker Joelinton’s statistics don’t make pleasant viewing for a player that cost a club record £40m in the summer, as the Toon striker drew another blank at the weekend.


Whoops – There it is

Bukayo Saka seemed happy enough with his cheeky assist when speaking to Jamie Redknapp following Arsenal’s 4-0 hammering of Newcastle on Sunday. And his reaction clearly tickled Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. A ‘little chilli’…


Chip off the old block

Marcus Thurman, son of legendary French defender Lilian, with an absolutely filthy reverse pass in the Bundesliga over the weekend.

EPL still running Serie A

The evergreen Ashley Young became the first English player to score against Lazio in Serie A since David Platt during his Sampdoria days way back in 1995 on Sunday night, though Inter would end up losing in the Italian capital.

Respect for Marega

Porto forward Moussa Marega walked off mid-way through his side’s win at Vitoria Guimaraes on Sunday, saying he was subjected to racist abuse from fans. Horrible to watch but respect for standing up to the idiots.

On this Day

Happy birthday to Adriano, who turns 38 today. The Emperor was some player in his pomp, with none other than Zlatan Ibrahimovic once remarking “The most talented player I have ever played with? Adriano. He was a pure animal.”
