X-rated challenge in the Bundesliga

This is naughty.



Raw sauce from Salah

Mo Salah has scored 84 goals in 126 games for Liverpool. However we can’t remember him scoring a more nonchalant one this this rascal finish to put the game beyond Watford on Saturday.



Bookies buzzing with Bournemouth

Biggest coupon buster of the weekend for all the gamblers out there? That would surely be Bournemouth – who had lost their last five – winning at Chelsea. is Frank Lampard starting to feel the pressure at Stamford Bridge?

A Krul twist of fate



Norwich City ended Leicester’s winning run and Jamie Vardy’s scoring streak. Do we reckon it was a little bit harsh to take this one off Mr Vardy though? Season of goodwill and all that?

More filth from Coutinho

An absolutely obscene treble for Bayern Munich’s Philippe Coutinho on Saturday. His second and third goals should come with a government health warning. Baller.


Bruce left boiling after ref debut

Newcastle boss Steve Bruce says referee Tim Robinson ‘was not ready’ to officiate in Premier League. Was this sour grapes after that 1-0 defeat at Burnley or did the Toon boss have a point?

Sancho shines again for Dortmund

Jadon Sancho is surely going to have to start getting a regular gig for England soon? He’s in outrageous nick in the Bundesliga and scored again at the weekend.

4000th match milestone for Red Devils

Quite the milestone and quite the montage this for Manchester United as on
Sunday they named a youth team graduate in the matchday squad for the 4,000th consecutive time. It was therefore fitting then that Mason Greenwood rescued a point for them against Everton.

Big Dunc braves the elements at OT

It may have been lashing it down with rain in December in Manchester but big Duncan Ferguson was happy to go with just a shirt, tie and a Python-esque funny walk during Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Are you OK Jamie?

Manchester City ran riot against Arsenal with Kevin De Bruyne on fire for the champions. We are still not sure about this though. Jamie Carragher getting carried away and making a noise that only dogs can hear during commentary as the Belgian rattled the post.

200 up for Citizen Pep

For a few hours on Sunday Manchester City were closer to the relegation zone than they were to Liverpool! Which is pretty much insane when you look at these numbers, right?

Don’t give up your day job, Wazza

Wayne Rooney is heading to a Championship ground near you very soon. Derby fans will be hoping his ball skills are better than his impersonation sills.

On this Day

Big Jan Vertonghen was the hero for Tottenham on Sunday at Molineux just as he was at White Hart Lane exactly seven years ago today as he broke Swansea’s hearts.
