WHAT WE LOVED Jadon Sancho registering another assist, Liverpool target Timo Werner scoring hat-trick,
We were treated to more fast-flowing Bundesliga action over the weekend.
Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich both won with the two Bundesliga heavyweights set to go head-to-head in a table-topping clash on Tuesday.
But before we get to that highly anticipated match, here’s what talkSPORT.com has enjoyed over the past week…
Jadon Sancho is back up and running
Sancho has not started Borussia Dortmund’s first two games since the Bundesliga’s return due to a groin strain.
However, he came off the bench to assist his side’s second goal on Saturday.
The England forward picked the ball up in his own half, carried on dribbling towards goal, before slipping in Achraf Hakimi to kill the game in the 78th minute.
It was Sancho’s 16th assist in 25 Bundesliga appearances this season.
No wonder Manchester United are so keen on him.
Liverpool targets continuing to shine
Timo Werner bagged himself a hat-trick in a 5-0 win over Mainz, while Kai Havertz scored a brace in a 3-1 win at Borussia Monchengladbach.
And apart from being Germany’s next top stars, what do they have in common? They are both linked with big-money moves to Liverpool.
If Reds scouts were watching from afar, they would have been very impressed.
Wladimir Klitschko helping Evander Holyfield train
Holyfield is looking to return to the boxing ring this year after retiring in 2011.
The 57-year-old fighter showed his incredible shape, speed and fitness in a workout clip featuring former world champion Klitschko.
With Mike Tyson also gearing up for a boxing return, there have been rumours of a trilogy fight with Holyfield.
It’s fair to say both men are taking a potential return seriously.
Footballers speaking out for Mental Health Awareness Week
Mental Health Awareness Week saw current and former footballers speak out.
Northampton striker Harry Smith and former Celtic star John Hartson both opened up about their gambling addiction.
Meanwhile, ex-Aston Villa ace Lee Hendrie revealed he is still coping with his mental health struggles.
If their stories lead more people to come forward and seek help for whatever they’re going through, then their words would have had a positive effect.
Brandon Williams buying his dad a car for birthday
Williams has had a season to remember by establishing himself as an important member of the Manchester United squad.
And the Manchester-born footballer is clearly humble, which Red Devils boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer likes.
And on the weekend, Williams surprised his dad with a Mercedes car for his birthday.
His dad’s reaction hilarious reaction was: “Are you taking the p***?!”
Dejan Lovren’s banter
Liverpool stars, including Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Virgil van Dijk, returned to training last week amid the coronavirus pandemic.
And we’re not sure if Salah would have appreciated Lovren’s tweet…
Salah tweeted his delight at being back, only for Lovren to reply with a picture of the Reds forward driving, saying: “Yeah but with a broken window”.
The Croatia defender had Liverpool fans in stitches
Scott Pollock’s amazing first touch
Several people have been trying a challenge on social media app TikTok where they kick the ball over their house, run into their back garden and catch it in time.
But Northampton midfielder Pollock went one better.
He managed to do the challenge, but instead of catching the ball, he expertly controlled it with his right foot.
