Date published: Monday 21st October 2019 10:14

We look at the social media fall out from Sunday’s 1-1 draw between Manchester United and Liverpool, while Jamie Vardy had the last laugh and there’s a golazo in Serie A to deny AC Milan, 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 weโ€™ve just had to watch again, or just anything we felt simply had to be sharedโ€ฆ


Ox left hanging

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was reportedly being hounded by a fans at old Trafford while he was warming up.

After the match he was seen to go over to the same fans and offered them a fist bump, which one of them took him up on, before leaving him hanging.

Ox saw the funny side though…


Fergie loves VAR

Sir Alex Ferguson loving his new job!


Filthy from Gylfi!

Gylfi Sigurdsson struck from distance in stoppage time as the Toffees ended a run of four successive Premier League defeats to ease the pressure on beleaguered boss Marco Silva on Saturday. Some goal it was too.


Major malfunction?

Absolute scenes at Spurs as whistler Chris Kavanagh blew for a Tottenham equaliser despite the VAR board clearly stating โ€˜No goalโ€™. The company in charge of the technology later apologised for the incorrect graphic, and for sending Phil Thompson into meltdown.


Vardy has the last laugh

Jamie Vardy used Burnley fans uncouth taunts about his missus as fuel and had the last laugh after scoring against the Clarets in a 2-1 win at the King Power on Saturday.


Juv seen them given

Juventus march on in Italy after toughing out another victory over the weekend, but were lucky not to concede a penalty late doors against Bologna. The smirk on Matthijs de Ligtโ€™s face said it all!

Once a Red always a Red

Club loyalties still clearly run deep for Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher, and we rather enjoyed watching their reactions to both goals in Sundayโ€™s 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

Telling it like it is

Bill Shanklyโ€™s mantra was that football was a simple game complicated by fools. And Roy Keane seems to agree…


Bad table manners from Jose?

It was all happening round that table post-match on Sunday as Jose Mourinho took a bizarre swipe at Jurgen Klopp.


If you are going to score an injury-time leveller to deny European giants AC Milan all three points, you may as well make it a good โ€˜un.


On this Day

On a wet and drab weekend 23 years ago Philippe Albert wrote himself into Geordie folklore with THAT audacious chip over Peter Schmeichel. And Didnโ€™t Martin Tyler enjoy it?
