From Neymar to Pogba, football celebrates Valentine's Day
What with it being Valentine's Day, many football clubs decided to use social media to help spread a little love among their fans.
First up, West Ham opted to celebrate by having their players recite a series of cringe-inducing chat-up lines.
Happy Valentine's Day! We're not sure these work, but in case you were feeling brave we've got you covered... 😅 pic.twitter.com/xIATGWFdRC— West Ham United (@WestHamUtd) February 14, 2018
Man City and Benjamin Mendy also went heavy on the puns, though with even less success.
Bristol City went with a special Valentines' edition of their trademark GIFs, featuring a stunning central performance from midfielder Marlon Pack.
Gary Neville shared a sweet image of true love.
Continuing the Manchester United theme, Paul Pogba also took the time to pay tribute to the enduring focus of his affections: His hair.

Neymar sent a heartfelt message to his significant other.
Barcelona proved a little self-centred by professing their undying love for... themselves.
And Michy Batshuayi got in on the act, sharing a photo of his date for the evening.
Isn't that nice? And on a Champions League day, what more could a football fan want?
