Marcus Rashford TEAMtalk

Rochdale scored a goal fitting of a Pep Guardiola team on Saturday, and stand back and watch Marcus Rashford’s brilliant flip-flap, 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…

 

Lightning feet from Rashford

Who doesn’t love a flip-flap? Class from Rashford.

 

Auba’s video nasty

An absolutely shocking challenge from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in Saturday’s early kick-off. We don’t get how’s there was any debate as it looked a clear red card and VAR confirmed as much. Martin Keown: “I’m not sure that’s worthy of a booking.” Get in the bin, Martin.

 

Pep Guardiola’s Rochdale

 

Rashford joins Old Trafford 200 club

Marcus Rashford became the third youngest player to reach 200 appearances for Manchester United over the weekend after George Best and Ryan Giggs. Not bad company to be keeping, Marcus.

Age just a number for Zlatan

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has been a model of consistency over the years and the AC Milan striker has bagged his first goal since rejoining the club on Saturday.

 

He’s a centre-half; He’s a number four…

Liverpool recorded a sixth straight clean sheet in beating Tottenham 1-0 and on recent evidence it’s hard to make a case that Virgil Van Dijk isn’t the best defender in the world right now.

Lo point for Mourinho

Tottenham’s Lo Celso had a decent game against Liverpool but that late miss on Saturday night – when it looked easier to score – literally brought boss Jose Mourinho to his knees.

Mersey Monsters

Liverpool have made the best ever start to a Premier League season after 21 games. They are unbeaten in 38 games and now an astonishing 1/25 on to win the title.

Taxi for Ospina

David Ospina went ‘full Rene Higuita’ on Saturday evening as the Colombian’s late howler saw Scudetto challengers Lazio claim a 10th win in a row.

He’s a dedicated follower of fashion

Oli McBurnie in the Swansea away end on Sunday as they squared off with bitter rivals Cardiff City. Some nice moves on display from the Sheffield United star despite wearing some very questionable threads!

Say it ain’t so Tyrone

Ahead of Aston Villa’s clash against Manchester City, Tyrone Mings and Jack Grealish sat down with Sky Sports to take a look at some defining pictures, including this little belter from the Mings archive.

Some day for Sergio

This pearler against Aston Villa was part of a hat-trick for Sergio Aguero who moves above Thierry Henry as the highest scoring non-English player in Premier League history.

And for my next trick…

Aguero’s treble also took him clear of a certain Alan Shearer as the player who has scored most hat-tricks in the Premier League era. The Argentine will is well to break Dixie Dean’s top flight hat-trick record though with the Everton legend weighing in with 37!

On this Day

Before the Premier League there was the English First Division. And before Sergio Aguero and Thierry Henry there was Glenrothes terrier David Robert Speedie. Have it!
