Record-breaking weekend!

In another weekend of football across Europe, we saw firsthand why Chelsea, Manchester City and Bayer Leverkusen are special teams!

Heading 3


The Belgian creative artist is racing towards Premier League immortality having gone above David Silva in the overall assist makers list!

De Bruyne magic!

His 95th assist also pulls him one ahead of Dennis Bergkamp, and behind Frank Lampard (102), Wayne Rooney (103), Cesc Fabregas (111) and Ryan Giggs (162).

Blues rule!

Young English midfielder Mason Mount not only created for Kai Havertz but also his fellow deep-lying forward Christian Pulisic.

It was Mount’s first assist for the campaign, doubling his 2022/23 tally in the second half. He finished 2021/22 with ten.

The other Bayer!

The new manager of Bayer Leverkusen Xabi Alonso led his team to a 4-0 win over Schalke, the biggest-ever win by a coach in their first Bundesliga game.

Fellow strugglers Schalke 04 were the visitors to the BayArena and by setting his team up in a 3-4-3 shape the hosts ran out 4-0 winners.

Also, Dimitri Payet!

Marseilles midfielder Dimitri Payet also became the first player in Ligue 1 history to register 100 goals and assists on Saturday.

With Liverpool set to take on the in-form Arsenal, we can expect another masterclass from playmakers like Martin Odegaard or Diogo Jota.
