Sadio Mane was back to his copycat best this weekend for Liverpool, while there are golazos galore and a player in Poland with an iron knee, 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…
Patience is a virtue
Flores being sacked after just 85 days is surely peak 2019? The Hornets have actually had more managers than Premier League wins this season.

Mane the copycat
Sadio Mane is Liverpool’s copycat…
We reckon this strike from Kevin De Bruyne should come with an age restriction! What an absolute screamer.

Wow. We are not even sure how to sum that one up. 25 yards out? On the volley? Keeper off his line? Outrageous.

It’s not gone well
For a goalkeeper, there is no hiding place. And so it proved for this unfortunate chap in the Dutch Eredivisie over the weekend.
Well it's fair to say that didn't go to plan…
