Best Soccer Twitter Moments Of The Weekend (Aug. 6-7)
Liverpool 2-2 Fulham
Starting us off was a moment in Saturday’s early fixture. Liverpool dropped points away to newly promoted Fulham, but the game will be best remembered for one moment. Fulham scored its first goal thanks to a header from Aleksandar Mitrović, who absolutely humiliated Liverpool’s right back Trent Alexander-Arnold. This gave the cottagers the lead and the internet more reason to slander Trent “Absolutely-Awful.”

A less noteworthy but equally laughable moment came after the match when Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp cited the excessively dry grass to explain why his side played so poorly. Many people shared their opinions online, but no one was more petty or perfect than Fulham itself, and we are all for it.

Leeds United 2-1 Wolves
Leeds began its season with a lot of excitement surrounding its coach, Jesse Marsch, as well as new signings Tyler Adams and Brenden Aaronson. The American trio has brought the side a large fan base among stateside-viewers, and many tuned in for what turned out to be a great match. After going down 1-0 early, Leeds brought it back level midway through the first half and then took the lead with just over 15 minutes to play. The goal has since been declared an own goal, but it was at first given to Aaronson, leading to mass hysteria among American supporters.
Brenden Aaronson's match winner in my books.

Manchester United 1-2 Brighton
Finally, Manchester United’s life under new manager Erik ten Hag officially began, and the Red Devils looked as poor as they ever have. With Cristiano Ronaldo on the bench and new signings making their debuts, the side looked downright horrendous as Brighton left with a massive 2-1 win away from home. There was plenty to criticize and nobody held back, not even Brighton.

I like Marcus Rashford so I will not be calling him Marcus Rashfooddrive out of respect and I will not be comparing his finishing ability to that of a squirrel on crack. Out of respect.— Aaron West (@oeste) August 7, 2022
