The weekend of sport was slightly affected by Storm Ciara.
Man Citys home match with West Ham was postponed because of the adverse weather conditions, while there were only three Premier League matches on due to the winter break.
Below are the best bits that caught talkSPORT.coms attention
Nutmegs galore
QPRs Eberechi Eze and Brentfords Said Benrahma executed DOUBLE nutmegs on their victims in their respective Championship games.
Despite being on the losing side, Eze terrorised Huddersfield duo Jonathan Hogg and Lewis OBrien in quick succession.
Meanwhile, Benrahma nutmegged Middlesbroughs Lewis Wing twice.
Both players have natural flair to their games, which was well on show on Saturday.
Too. Much. Sauce.

Christian Benteke finally scoring
Benteke scored for the first time since April with an equaliser against Everton.
England No.1 Jordan Pickford should have done better with the shot as the Toffees went on to win 3-1 at Goodison Park.
It was only Bentekes second Premier League goal since the start of the 2018/19 campaign.
Palace are the lowest scorers in the Premier League with just 23 goals, but Eagles fans will hope Benteke starts to find the net on a regular basis by getting on the scoresheet.
Christian Benteke opened his club account for the season
Cristiano Ronaldo’s impressive record
Ronaldo scored the opening goal in Juventus shock 2-1 defeat to Hellas Verona in Serie A.
But the 35-year-olds strike saw him score 20 league goals for the 11th successive season and that is seriously impressive.
Ronaldo has also netted in 10 consecutive league games, one short of a Serie A record.
Cristiano Ronaldo is in superb form for Juventus
Emre Cans screamer
Can announced himself in style to Borussia Dortmund fans on his Bundesliga debut with a stunning 25-yard strike in a 4-3 defeat to Bayer Leverkusen.
The former Liverpool midfielder joined Dortmund on loan from Juventus last month after starting just two league games under Maurizio Sarri in Turin.
And he did not appear to lack match fitness as he impressed in midfield before being replaced by Mario Gotze with three minutes remaining.
Outrageous from Emre Can! Wow!
Two touches then he shapes it into the net from 25 yards! His former club are stunned!

Kell Brooks comeback win
Brooks return to the boxing ring was a perfect one with a counter-left knockout of Mark DeLuca in Sheffield.
The 33-year-old, who had not fought since beating Michael Zerafa in December 2018, showed no ring rust as he ended the contest in the seventh round.
Promoter Eddie Hearn praised Brooks fitness, while insisting 2020 will be a big year for the boxer.
The Rock praising Jon Jones
Greatest recognised greatness after UFC 247.
Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson dubbed Jones The Greatest of All Time after he successfully defended his light heavyweight championship against Dominick Reyes.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin giving his shirt to a young pitch invader
Calvert-Lewin enhanced his England credentials by scoring his 13th goal of the season against Crystal Palace.
And one lucky, and very bold, young fan invaded the pitch at full-time in the hope of getting the striker’s shirt.
And luck was on his side when Calvert-Lewin happily gave him his top.
It will be a day that will live long in the boy’s memory.
The youngest pitch invader we’ve ever seen!
