Tuchel Mbappe TEAMtalk

Kylian Mbappe was substituted by PSG on Saturday and he wasn’t happy, while Neymar’s rainbow flick saw him booked, 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…

If you’ve got three minutes…

You literally won’t have heard better craic this weekend than Alan Birchenall and Robbie ‘Pelican Head’ Savage reminiscing pitchside ahead of Leicester City v Chelsea.

Shearer’s high praise for Hendo

Alan Shearer: “If the season ended tomorrow, Jordan Henderson would be my player of the season.” Recency bias from Big Al? Or has Henderson been the best player in the Premier League this season?

Look at his face! Just look at his face.

Another memorable weekend for Sheffield United as the Blades won on the road again. The team wrote off as relegation certainties in the summer are flying in sixth. It was a day new signing Sander Berge won’t forget in a hurry!

 

Journo baffled by Toon position

After drawing 0-0 with Norwich City at home Newcastle United – to the untrained eye anyway – are still looking quite comfy in 12th. But not everyone in the North East feels as though the Magpies are having a decent season.

Solskjaer defends Wolves draw

Ole tried to remain upbeat after another Old Trafford stalemate. One point here though. Apart from West Ham and Leicester, every single team in the Premier League this season has scored against Wolves.

The game’s gone, Clive

Neymar was seemingly booked for showboating during PSG’s victory over Montpellier on Saturday night. Do us a favour ref! Rainbow flick, pink hair and zero f**s given. Never change, Neymar. Never, ever change.

Mbappe fury after being hooked

In the same game Kylian Mbappe certainly didn’t appreciate being subbed off by Thomas Tuchel. The Frenchman – who is yet to sign a new deal at PSG and has been linked with a move away from France – didn’t cover himself in glory after this tete-a-tete with his own manager.

CR7 hits goalscoring milestone for Juve

10 goals in his last six games and 50 goals in just 70 games for Juventus. It seems reports of Cristiano Ronaldo’s demise, much like Mark Twain’s, have been greatly exaggerated.

It was the Ronaldo show against Fiorentina

Sterling lucky to avoid early bath?

Raheem Sterling left England colleague Dele Alli screaming in pain with a horror tackle early doors during Tottenham’s clash with Manchester City on Sunday. Was it the right call that he avoided a straight red card?

No way, Jose

Jose Mourinho’s reaction to Hugo Lloris saving Ilkay Gundogan’s penalty and then realising that Raheem Sterling could potentially have been given a second yellow card for diving might be the best thing we’ve seen all season!

On this Day

30 year ago on this very day, long before anyone had ever heard of the Premier League, Sergio Aguero or Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Ian Brightwell fired home this screamer in the Manchester derby.
