West Ham United youngster Toni Martinez netted his first hat-trick of the season during the 4-2 win over Manchester United U23s yesterday.
Making a mark for himself in the youth league, the striker celebrated all his 3 goals in a peculiar fashion doing the “see no evil 🙈, hear no evil 🙉, speak no evil 🙊” emoji celebrations after each of his goals. His celebration went viral on Twitter with plenty of likes and retweets.
The young prolific striker continued his brilliant form this season and has now scored 14 goals for the youth squad this season.
With Andy Carroll suspended and lack of attacking firepower up front for the Irons, Toni’s brilliant form might just earn him a place in the 1st team sooner rather than later.

With probably one of his best performances in a Liverpool shirt, young English right-back Joe Gomez earned himself a place in Garth Crooks’ Premier League team of the week.
A rock-solid display at the back coupled with his exceptional presence of mind going forward against arch-rivals Manchester United on Saturday, the defender stood out against most of the players on the pitch.
In fact, many believed his performance was worthy of the MotM award.
With 6 clean sheets in 10 appearances this season, Joe Gomez is steadily starting to unravel the defensive concerns for the Merseyside team.

Leeds United suffered their 4th loss of the season yesterday as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat against Reading in the EFL championship.
After conceding a goal in the 84th minute, Leeds fans had some hopes of a late comeback courtesy of a penalty kick conceded by Reading in the dying minutes of the match.
But a phenomenal save by the Reading keeper, shattered those hopes leading to their first home defeat of the season.
All in all a disappointing Saturday for the Leeds fans, made only a little better after this bit of display from former player Jermaine Beckford.
Now at Bury, striker Jermaine Beckford celebrated his goal against Bradford City with the famous Leeds salute showing that he still loves the club were he spent a majority of his career playing professional football.

Celtic continued their unbeaten run in the Scottish Premiership, securing their 7th win of the season yesterday against Dundee. Oliver Ntcham’s second-half strike was enough to give an under-strength home side a 1-0 win at Celtic Park.
Keeping the injuries and the all-important Champions League game in mind, Brendan Rodgers played a weaker side that featured Manchester City loanee, Patrick Roberts.
Perhaps the best player on the pitch, Roberts was a menace down the right wing for Celtic while creating a handful of chances for his team.
However, in a match that didn’t involve a lot of eye-catching football and goals, the highlight of the game was Patrick Roberts showboating while doing the keepy-uppies in the 90th minute.
Have mercy, Patrick! Check out the video here:
Former Celtic forward Chris Sutton is well known for his hostility and criticism towards Rangers and the BT Sport pundit got a taste of his own medicine last night as the traveling Rangers supporters dished out an x-rated chant at him after their win against St. Johnstone.
The match ended in a 3-0 victory for the visitors after the Saints went down to 10 men with captain Steven Anderson shown a second yellow card after 70 minutes.
It was a perfect occasion for the Gers fans to let their views known and they wasted no time in doing so as they chanted “you’re a w*nker” at Chris Sutton who was busy doing the post-match analysis show for BT sport.
Sutton’s reaction was rather precious as well, check out the video below –
Local boy on a roll!
Graham Dorrans has made a decent start after making a permanent move from Norwich City to his boyhood club Rangers back in July. The Scottish midfielder has now scored 5 goals in 9 games so far this season, including a late goal during the 3-0 win against St. Johnstone last night.
The goal and performance on the night was cherished so much by the Gers fans that they went on chanting his name for almost over a minute, making Graham realize that he is one of their own. Chants like these define the bond between a football player and the fans, making it the beautiful game.
With an important win for the Rangers last night who were tied on points with St.Johnstone before the game, the Glasgow club is now breathing down the neck of their arch-rivals and current league leaders Celtic.
Can their new hero inspire the club to the title this season? That remains to be seen. Check out the chanting below –
It hasn’t been the best of starts for Tottenham star Dele Alli this season. Scoring just 2 goals in the opening 7 fixtures for the club, the Englishman hasn’t lived up to the expectations yet and with the return of Erik Lamela in training, it looks like Dele can’t take his place in the starting 11 for granted.
However, the forward was seen in a good form in a recent training video uploaded by the Tottenham’s official Twitter account.
The likes of Alli, Kane, Eriksen and Rose were spotted practicing freekicks before the upcoming home game against Bournemouth. Alli scored some cracking freekicks and even hit the top corner in one of his attempts.
Spurs fans will be hoping that Dele quickly returns to his best and put in a good performance this weekend to give the North Londoners their first home win in the league this season.

Liverpool’s Little Magician at his best!
After missing about a month of football action this season due to injury and rumors about a possible transfer away from the current club, Brazilian midfield magician, Philippe Coutinho has hit the ground running ever since he made a comeback on the football pitch in September.
Coutinho wasted no time and carried on with his incredible form even in the World Cup qualifiers for Brazil.
Coutinho’s mesmerizing dribbling skills and tricks on the football pitch along with his brilliant body movement during the World Cup qualifiers were captured in a short video which went viral on Twitter earlier this week.
The video shows “the little magician” moving past the opposition defenders swiftly and skillfully making life difficult for the opposing team.
With an important fixture coming up this Saturday for Liverpool (vs Manchester United), this video is nothing but a delight for all the Liverpool fans and they’ll be hoping that Coutinho replicates this performance on the all-important derby.

Tottenham Hotspur star Mousa Dembele has turned more into a squad player lately due to the number of injuries sustained by the central midfielder over the last few years.
Having recovered from an an ankle problem he suffered in May last season, the Belgian had stated that he will never be 100% fit again.
A decent start to the current season had many hopeful again, only for the midfielder to suffer another “long-term” knee injury.
But there might be some good news for the Spurs fans as Mousa Dembele was seen being involved in light training recently at Hotspur Way before Spurs’ clash v Bournemouth on the weekend.
Check out the picture of Dembele training alone yesterday here –
There are very few players that connect with the fans like Ander Herrera. This might very well be the reason why Manchester United’s new social media initiative on Twitter starred none other than the diminutive midfielder.
The Spaniard took charge of Manchester United’s official Twitter account for 1 hour in an interactive Q&A session with the fans yesterday.
Herrera’s answers to all the questions were on point, but one particular reply was especially liked by the fans. One of the fans asked Ander as to what was his favorite moment in the club apart from winning the Europa League last season.
Ander’s response to this question showed why he is loved so much by the fans at the Old Trafford and how he was born to play for the club.
Class act Ander! Check out his response here:
His social media gig was impressive indeed. But with Fellaini and Pogba injured and an important game like Liverpool coming up this weekend, it looks like Ander has one more opportunity to showcase his skill on the field.
