1 KYLE’S A KEEPER How Walker became Man. City’s shot-stopping hero! ANOTHER WEEK, another mad set of UCL fixtures with epic comebacks, shock wins and, er, Kyle Walker in goal for Man. City! Yep, that’s right – when Ederson was taken off because of an injury v Atalanta and sub Claudio Bravo was sent off, the 29-year-old right-back donned the gloves and made an important save. Crazy days! RAMPANT RODRYGO! The 18-year-old Real Madrid star became the youngest player to score a perfect treble in the UCL and only the third to score a hat-trick at his age! PAZ SAYS Walker might be doing the biz for City, but he hasn't been able to force his way back into Gareth Southgate's England squad! 2 FOXES’ TITLE HUNT Leicester lads ready to push Liverpool and Man. City all the…

PLAYING YEARS 1984-2009 PAOLO MALDINI BEST KNOWN PLAYING FOR: AC MILAN & ITALY • You know what's mad? The best left-back of all time was right-footed – and also played at CB and RB.
