Weekend Sport Social Media Reaction


There were a number of big talking points over an action-packed weekend of sport and, as ever, the reaction online was fascinating.

Here are some tweets that caught our eye, including what was said about the Kepa v Sarri row at Wembley!

1) Was it a misunderstanding?

Many pundits admitted to having never seen anything like the incident involving Kepa Arrizabalaga in the EFL Cup final on Sunday.

The Spanish shot-stopper looked like he refused to be substituted during extra-time of the clash with Manchester City – causing an angry reaction from Maurizio Sarri.

Both the player and manager have since claimed a misunderstandingโ€ฆ.be your own judge!

Manchester City are 8/1 to win the other three tournaments they’re involved in this season after landing the EFL Cup.

2) Fantasy Football joins in the fun

Millions of people had their say on the Kepa incident via social media and even used Fantasy Premier League to have a joke at the expense of the Chelsea keeper.

Will the Spaniard start when Chelsea play host to Tottenhamย (Match Betting โ€“ Chelsea 27/20, Draw 12/5, Spurs 43/20) on Wednesday night?

3) Ole thankful for ‘Manc’ Rashford

Sundayโ€™s Man Utd v Liverpool clash will only be remembered for a string of injuries during the clash, especially for the hosts (Man Utd 11/10 Top Four Finish).

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer lost Ander Herrera, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard in the first half, with Marcus Rashford then forced to play the whole game despite suffering an early injury.

The United boss was certainly grateful for his young starโ€™s attitude.

4) Wood canโ€™t hide Wales excitement

It was a stunning comeback from Wales to beat England in Cardiff on Saturday and put Warren Gatlandโ€™s men in the box seat to win the Six Nations title.

England were 3-10 up at half-time, but the Welsh found another gear in the second 40 minutes and secured a 21-13 โ€“ a result that moves them up to third in the world rankings.

Wales are 2/1 to win a Grand Slam and one person who couldnโ€™t contain her delight was Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood.

5) Rory makes a fanโ€™s day

Rory McIlroy looks to be getting back to his best and could be a winner again soon, following a second-placed finish at the WGC-Mexico Championship.

The Northern Irishman, who is 11/1 to win 2019 US Masters, finished five shots behind eventual winner Dustin Johnson, after enjoying some strong support from the Mexican golf fans over the week.

One young boy was so distraught that McIlroy didnโ€™t win, he was reduced to tears. So Rory stepped in to give him a memory heโ€™ll remember forever.
