Social Round-up: James Milner raps and Soccer stars watch the Super bowl

Each weekend of soccer brings its own unique moments of magic from sublime skill to unbelievable goalscoring feats.

Thanks to social media we have greater access to these moments than ever before, and all are given their own unique twist which adds to the entertainment.

We searched for some of the best moments of the weekend, relayed via social media.

Agüero stakes his claim to be the best 

It's quite remarkable really. After his treble against Arsenal, which saw Manchester City cut Liverpool's lead at the top of the Premier League table to just two points, the Argentine now has as many hat-tricks in the English top flight as Cristiano Ronaldo, Eric Cantona, Dennis Bergkamp, Daniel Sturridge, Jürgen Klinsmann, Gianluca Vialli, Louis Saha, Dirk Kuyt and Samuel Eto'o. 

Many greats are included on the list and it strengthens the claims that Agüero is perhaps the best foreigner to ever grace the Premier League. He's only one shy of Alan Shearer's record for most hat-tricks in the history. 

The cat is out the bag  

In 2012 a cat invaded Anfield during Liverpool's clash with Tottenham Hotspur. Fast forward almost seven years and there was another feline incident on Merseyside. 

Neighbours Everton saw their clash with Wolves halted when a black cat appeared on the pitch. The fans got behind the pitch invader and, for those not in attendance, BBC commentator John Acres brought the indicent to life with a quite mesmerizing bit of commentary. 

 

Soccer x Football

When worlds collide. This year's Super Bowl was contested by New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams. It's an event watched across the globe and one that soccer stars want to be part of. 

Tottenham Hotspur and England striker Harry Kane, currently out injured, made the trip to Atlanta to watch it live. The 25-year-old, who is friends with Patriots quarter-back Tom Brady, was fortunate enough to meet New England owner Robert Kraft and saw his buddy's side win a record sixth Vince Lombardi trophy after triumping 13-3. 

Victor Lindelöf wasn't as fortunate as the Spurs striker. The Manchester United centre-back, who has been a star performer since the appointment of Ole Gunnar Solskjær, had to watch on from home. 

The Red Devils had a match against Leicester City on Sunday morning meaning the Swedish defender couldn't get to the Mercedes-Benz stadium to watch the watch it live. 

He wasn't shy about making it known who he wanted to win.

James Milner channels his inner Eminem

The Liverpool midfielder is one of the gems of social media. Ever the joker, the 33-year-old replied someone on Twitter with a verse straight out of the Eminem songbook. 

Stick 'Stan' on YouTube and switch in Milner's lyrics. You're in for a treat. 

 

Jason Denayer does not like conceding goals

Strikers are judged on goals. Defenders are judged on clean sheets. It's just the way of the soccer world. Former Manchester City man Jason Denayer takes his duties seriously. 

With OL looking to go into the breaking level with the Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain, the Belgian centre-back literally threw himself at the ball to keep it out. 

It proved to be a decisive clearance with Lyon scoring just after the break courtesy of a Nabil Fekir penalty. It meant PSG were beaten in the French top flight for the first time since May 2018.
