This video’s worth your time for Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa’s no-look rainbow-esque pass to Moussa Sissoko in Newcastle’s 1-0 loss to Fulham, but you also get a slick turn from an Evertonian, nifty footwork from Crystal Palace and Liverpool.

And of course, Fabian Delph…

Premier League Showboats – Danny Welbeck loves back-heels (Video)

Loads of sensational goals in last weekend’s Premier League action but what about those moments you want to pull off in pick-up matches? We’ve got them for you. Below are the showboats for the week, let us know which move do you like best?

  • Peter Whittingham and Peter Odemwingie’s joint-free kick is one we’re certain to see on the playground, as is Danny Welbeck’s no-look back heel to Antonio Valencia.
  • Fulham fans may not be happy with René Meulensteen’s appointment but his touch is slick, as was Mo Diame’s deak on John O’Shea in West Ham’s 0-0 draw with Sunderland.
  • And how about Ross Barkley? Are you convinced of this kid’s skills yet? If not, check out his pacy 70 yard run capped off by a smooth double step over. Kid’s got skillz, even though the final ball may still be lacking.
  • Like Welbeck, Willian is a fan of the back heel and like Barkley, Ravel Morrison knows how to turn the jets on the counter-attack.
  • Back to Welbeck. When the man does something he likes, he sticks with it. Like the back heel he gave Valencia – did the same with Tom Cleverley. Two for two.
  • Ki Sung-Yueng has skills too. Well, enough to shake James Collison, which isn’t saying much.
  • Cameron Jerome embarrassed David Luiz with this meg. But if you can’t get on the other side of it, does it truly count? I say ‘no’.
