15 things we loved this wkend: Messi, Vardy, Lukaku, Sancho


Liverpool‘s crumbling title defence led the news in England this weekend, while Romelu Lukaku stole the show for Inter in Serie A.

Elsewhere, Lionel Messi continues to do Lionel Messi things for Barcelona, despite his future remaining unclear, while we were treated to one of the longest long throws we’ve ever seen. Seriously, what more could you want?

We’ve rounded up the best of the action on and off the field.

The striker brought up 300 career goals in Inter’s 3-1 win over Lazio, but this assist took the biscuit.
