17 things we loved this weekend: Messi, Kante, Klopp, Fernandes…

All eyes were on Manchester United over the weekend as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was sacked after an embarrassing 4-1 defeat to Watford. 

Elsewhere, Lionel Messi scored his first Ligue 1 goal for PSG and a Memphis Depay penalty gave Xavi his first win as Barcelona manager.

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

N’Golo Kante
Did Kante send the Leicester midfielder for a hotdog? Ndidi did.

Trent Alexander-Arnold
The Liverpool right-back is an assist machine.

Trent Alexander-Arnold’s last three games for Liverpool:

🅰️🅰️ vs. Atletico
⚽️🅰️ vs. West Ham
🅰️🅰️ vs. Arsenal

And he got a hat-trick of assists for England on Monday. 🤯 pic.twitter.com/V4F9wwt17E

Lionel Messi
The first of many, you’d imagine.

Lionel Messi scores his first Ligue 1 goal! ⚽️

At the 21st attempt, the Argentine opens his account for PSG in France’s top flight.

A nice gesture to front up on a difficult day.

Antonio Conte
It’s fair to say that Conte enjoyed his first Premier League win with Spurs.

Micah Richards
Keane in the Old Trafford dugout would certainly be interesting.

“Give it Keane until the end of the season!” 👀

“He has slagged off half off the dressing room” 😂

Vinicius Junior
We doubt you’ll see many team goals better than this in 2021-22.
