The best and funniest tweets of the week from the world of football, featuring Kyle Walker’s cameo as a goalkeeper, the Banter Era in full swing at Arsenal, Kepa joins the memes club and the remembrance poppy jumps the shark.
Man City vs Atalanta treated us to the greatest joy football can offer – a outfielder in net.
So in the last 12 days we've seen a 0-9, a 5-5, a 4-4, Ben Foster having a shot on target and Kyle Walker saving a free-kick. Drink it in.

Made more saves than Claudio Bravo too. Worth every penny, if you ask me.
£50m Kyle Walker becomes the third most expensive goalkeeper of all time

At least he can always say he has a 100% record between the sticks.
Think Kyle Walker is the first English goalkeeper to make a save in the Champions League since Ben Hamer in Porto 5-0 Leicester in 2016.

But now is not the time for jokes. It’s time to honour our fallen soldiers with [checks notes] an anthropomorphic poppy mascot.
Beautiful tribute to our fallen soldiers 😢 pic.twitter.com/gpbZNPpMH5

Michy Batshuayi was super supportive of teammate Kepa after the goalkeeper scored an own goal with his face.

Imagine fluffing your lines just as you’re about to score the greatest goal ever.

So glad we got our priorities straightened out and sorted the League Cup quarter-final.
ridiculous that liverpool should have to play a league cup tie 24 hours before a game in qatar, the slave state where migrant workers are roasting to death. utterly furious at… [checks notes] the fixture calendar for allowing this to happen

Okay, this is pretty good.
Three Adama Traore’s, Mali? That’s insane.
Wolves’ Adama Traoré has decided to play for Mali, switching over from Spain.
We could see a future Mali team featuring Wolves’ Adama Traoré on the right wing, Monaco’s Adama Traoré (on loan at Metz) in central midfield, and Metz’s Adama Traoré on the left wing.
