3. DELIGHTFUL DIABY

Leverkusen came back from a goal down to win 3-1 versus Union Berlin to progress to the semis of the DFB-Pokal, with Moussa Diaby finishing off the visitors with the third goal after coming on at half-time to help change the game.

With Union, with 10 men, desperately trying to find another goal, they succumbed to a quick counter from Leverkusen which saw Karim Bellarabi dash down the right before unselfishly passing square to Diaby. The position of the finish is simple, but the Frenchman helps send the goalkeeper to the floor with a lovely feigned touch which also confuses the defender, allowing him to pass into the empty net.

2. BRAVO Ross Barkley

Chelsea pulled off the surprise of the round in the FA Cup as they defeated the domestically undefeatable (until against Watford at least) Liverpool 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.

The second goal was emphatically scored by Ross Barkley in what was a display of what he can do if the confidence is there.

After collecting the ball in the middle of the pitch, he proceeds to drive through the centre at speed with possession at this feet, ignoring the pleas of Pedro for a pass. He then picks his moment to rifle a brilliant strike across goal into the left corner from a yard or two outside the box.

1. MAGNIFICENT MBAPPE

Kylian Mbappe scored a hat-trick during the week as PSG demolished Lyon 5-1 to progress in the Coupe de France.

His second goal was special and is sure to be remembered for some time.

He initially picks up possession inside his own half before leaving Lucas Tousart for dead with a rapid stepover, allowing him to burst into space at Olympic-level speed. Bearing down on the Lyon box, he turns Marcelo inside out with a few dazzling touches before lashing a finish home into the corner. Outrageous speed. Outrageous control.
