European Club football continued last weekend across the continent. The battle is not over yet because Manchester City will play Tottenham tonight at Wembley. Lazio will also face Inter Milan on Monday. Real Madrid fans are obviously not enjoying the day but Barcelona fans are over the moon. Lionel Messi out but who needs him when Suarez is there. Cristiano Ronaldo went and the Los Blancos are in tatters. Let us see how World Class stars performed last weekend for their clubs in 5 best Leagues.

Manchester United is back to winning ways after coming off another nervy finish against Everton at Old Trafford. The Red Devils won the game 2-1 thanks to Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial goals. The Frenchman netted a beauty. He is a man on fire at the moment. He missed an open chance later in the game but he is the guy the fans hope can continue shining. Romelu Lukaku started from the bench.
6. Kylian Mbappe-1 Goal

The Champions won 2-0 away from home thanks to goals from Kylian Mbappe and Julian Draxler. The win takes their points tally to 33 after 11 matches. They have neither drawn nor lost a single match so far.

Liverpool is now top of the table with 26 points after 10 points. They will hold the position until tonight when Manchester City takes on Tottenham Hotspurs. Pep Guardiola side will go back to the top with any kind of win because they have a better goal difference.
On Saturday, the Reds did their job by beating Cardiff City 4-1 at Anfield. Mohamed Salah opened the scoring in the 10th minute but it is Sadio Mane brace that got the headlines. The Senegalese scored his two goals in the 66th and 87th minute.
4. Jadon Sancho- 2 Goals
Borussia Dortmund fine run was halted by a 91st-minute penalty awarded to visitors Hertha Berlin. The headlines could’ve gone to two-goal hero Jadon Sancho. The 18-year-old netted twice in 27th and 61st minute to put his side ahead. This follows another goal he scored in mid-week against Atletico Madrid to open his UEFA Champions League account.
The young Englishman is taking Bundesliga by storm. The brace takes his tally this season to 4 goals and 6 assists. Gareth Southgate was right to give him his first England cap a few weeks ago. Pep Guardiola will be a disappointed man because he allowed the wonder-kid to leave Manchester City last summer. He is taking the headlines like Rashford, Martial and Kylian Mbappe.
