5. DE BRUYNE DISARMS THE GUNNERS

Arsenal made a positive start to the game against Man City on Sunday, for about 60 seconds. Thereafter, Pep Guardiola's side dominated and scored the opener within the first two minutes via Kevin De Bruyne, who was majestic on the day. Gabriel Jesus makes a superb run in behind the Arsenal defence down the left channel before digging out a cross to the opposite side of the box for the Belgian, who displays quite magnificent technique to side-foot a half-volley high into the roof of the net.

4. SUPER SALAH

It look Liverpool a little while to get going at the weekend against Watford, but eventually broke the deadlock via Mohamed Salah. After a perfectly-weighted through-pass from Sadio Mane, the Egyptian cuts inside on to his 'weaker' foot past the defender, and just when you think he has taken one touch too many, he manages to dig out a curled finish into the top corner, with Ben Foster left helpless in the Watford goal.

3. CLASS FROM COUTINHO

Philippe Coutinho put in one of the best performances you will see this season for Bayern on Saturday as they demolished Werder Bremen 6-1. He scored a hat-trick and set-up another two, with his second goal being pretty special. After breaking in behind the opposition defence with a smart run from the left, he nonchalantly lobs a cheeky finish over the oncoming goalkeeper, as calm as you like.

2. RASHICA ENRAGES BAYERN

In that same match between Bayern and Werder Bremen, the visitors actually took a surprisingly lead early on which only served to motivate the German champions to smash in six goals in return. However, the consolation goal itself was a beauty, as Milot Rashica cleverly flicks the ball round the defender in midfield before embarking on a pacey dribble through the middle, while his finish is absolutely slammed into the middle of the goal before the keeper can react.

1. VLAHOVIC BREAKS INTER HEARTS

Inter allowed Juventus to get back level on points at the top of Serie A after conceding a late equaliser against Fiorentina, with Dusan Vlahovic scoring to make it 1-1 - and what a goal it was. After picking up possession near the halfway line, he turns and runs directly towards goal at tremendous pace, leaving a couple of defenders in his wake before whipping a strike up and over Samir Handanovic, who is seen punching the ground in frustration afterwards.
