  1. Problems come in threes

    Inter Milan 2-1 Tottenham

    The Daily Telegraph

    Inter Milan v Spurs

    Last night's defeat against Inter Milan was a third successive loss for Tottenham for the first time under the stewardship of Mauricio Pochettino.

    The Daily Telegraph's Adam Hurrey has dissected the problems that the north Londoners are coming up against.

    They include, inevitably, a misfiring Harry Kane and Pochettino's own affronted response to the media inquest into the loss.

  2. 'You don't think we have no chance any more'

    Liverpool 3-2 PSG

    Jurgen Klopp

    Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp believes that his side's win over Paris St-Germain last night shows there has been a revolution in expection at Anfield since he took over.

    The Reds finished as runners-up in the Champions League final last season and did the same in Klopp's debut season in charge.

    "The development of our club is that when you hear Liverpool plays PSG you don’t think we have no chance any more," he said.

    "I would say that one, two, three years ago probably everyone would have thought that is a mountain we cannot climb. That is good that it is not like that any more."

  3. 'Mikel and Pep are complementary'

    Manchester City v Lyon (20:00 BST)

    Mikel Arteta

    Manchester City assistant Mikel Arteta was linked to the Arsenal job in the wake of Arsene Wenger's departure and French defender Aymeric Laporte says he believes Arteta has the tactical know-how and charisma to fill in on the touchline for the suspended Pep Guardiola tonight.

    “Mikel and Pep are very complementary, and they have both have lived and breathed football," he said.

    "He was a terrific player and he spends a lot of time with us. It’s a huge pleasure to work with people like Pep and Mikel who are both at the top of the tree.”

  4. 'Confidence is high'

    Young Boys v Manchester United (20:00 BST)

    Jose Mourinho

    Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insists his side are getting into their groove following away wins over Burnley and Watford in the Premier League.

    The Red Devils lost two of their opening three games, going down at home to Tottenham after defeat away to Brighton.

    "Confidence is high, we are in a good moment," he said.

    "The team is playing really well, it is creating lots of chances. We have also found more stability also in our defensive game."

  5. 'What are PSG?'

    Liverpool 3-2 Paris St Germain

    The Guardian


    The Guardian's Jonathan Wilson has had his say on Paris St-Germain's free-form attacking formation.

    Fair to say he is not a fan of the liberties taken by Neymar, Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe.

    "Leaving three forwards high up the pitch to float about and occasionally turn a trick may be enough in Ligue 1 but it is no way to play against proper opposition," he writes.

    "Each season the question seems to become more fundamental: what are PSG? A vanity project for Neymar? A strangely misplaced Nike marketing ploy? A laundromat for Qatar’s international reputation? They’re certainly not a football club in any traditional sense."

  6. Bring the thunder

    Liverpool 3-2 Paris St-Germain

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer


    "On a typically thunderous Champions League night at Anfield, Liverpool simply carried on where they left off here last year, emphasising once more that they will be a force to be reckoned with this season - and serious contenders should they reach the knockout stage.

    "PSG still look a collection of parts rather than a whole, talented but disjointed, with enough to win with ease at home but still with serious questions about whether they can come close to the Champions League."

  7. Post update

    Young Boys v Manchester United (20:00 BST)

    David De Gea

    Simon Gleave, head of sports analysis at Gracenote

    "Manchester United's chances of progress to the last 16 of this season's Champions League declined slightly after being paired with Juventus, who are ranked fourth in Europe by the Euro Club Index, when there was a chance of drawing the much weaker Lokomotiv Moscow.

    "Manchester United are rated the 12th best team in Europe (11th best in the Champions League in Chelsea's absence). Valencia (22nd) and Switzerland's Young Boys (55th) complete United's Group H opponents."

  8. United to take inspiration from the Fed

    Young Boys v Manchester United (20:00 BST)

    Jose Mourinho

    Manager Jose Mourinho referenced one of Switzerland's favourite sons - 20-time Grand Slam winner Roger Federer - in his media conference before United's meeting with Young Boys.

    The Portuguese used Federer's example to remind his players that the greatest sportspeople refuse to let conditions hinder their performance as they prepare for Young Boys artificial surface.

    "I'm pretty sure that the big man sometimes is not happy to play on such a surface but he has to play and he has to win," said Mourinho.

  9. Ronaldo takes to the stage

    Valencia v Juventus (20:00 BST)

    Cristiano Ronaldo

    A new era begins tonight.

    After 120 (!) Champions League goals for Manchester United and Real Madrid, Crisitiano Ronaldo makes his first appearance in the competition for new side Juventus.

    The 33-year-old has finished as top scorer in the competition for the past six season.

  10. Sancho makes Champions League bow

    Bruges 0-1 Borussia Dortmund

    Talking of which, Jadon Sancho - the 18-year-old England age-grade international who moved from Manchester City to Borussia Dortmund in August 2017 - made his Champions League debut last night.

    He played 69 minutes in the German side's 1-0 win away to Bruges becoming the youngest English player ever to play in the Champions League for a foreign side.

  11. Eyes on the prize

    Harry Kane

    The Champions League is the elite level of club football.

    But how many England-qualified players get to hone their trade in it?

    Less than you might think.

    Only 26 Englishmen started a Champions League game in 2017-18, less than Belgium, Netherlands, Portugal or Argentina.

  12. The best

    Idris Elba

    Actor Idris Elba - touted as a possible future James Bond - has landed the presenting gig for Monday's Fifa Best awards.

    The Arsenal fan will be joined by French television presenter Anne-Laure Bonnet on stage at the Royal Festival Hall.

    The men's award will be contested by Juventus' Cristiano Ronaldo, Liverpool's Mohamed Salah and Real Madrid's Luka Modric.

    The women's is between Lyon pair Ada Hegerberg and Dzsenifer Marozsan and Brazilian legend Marta.

  14. Familiar faces return

    Manchester City v Lyon (20:00 BST)

    Moussa Dembele

    Lyon's team contains several names that will be familiar to British fans.

    As well as former Manchester United winger Memphis Depay, striker Moussa Dembele, signed from Celtic for £19.7m in August, is part of the squad. He made his debut in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Caen.

    Elsewhere World Cup winner and one-time Liverpool target Nabil Fekir and ex-Chelsea starlet Bertrand Traore are also involved.

    Lyon have had a mixed start to the new campaign, winning two, losing two and drawing once in their opening five fixtures to sit seventh in the table, already eight points behind leaders Paris St Germain.

  15. 'I would choose Pep'

    Manchester City v Lyon (20:00 BST)

    Pep Guardila

    Pep Guardiola will be taking in tonight's Champions League game at the Etihad Stadium from the stands as he serves out a touchline ban hanging over from his sending off in the quarter-final defeat by Liverpool last season.

    Assistant Mikel Arteta will direct things from the dug-out and said he is relishing the chance to fill in for the boss.

    "He wouldn't choose the situation but I am here. I will try to do my best to reduce the impact of not having Pep," said Arteta.

    "It is a good challenge, a very nice challenge, but if I had to choose, I would choose Pep on the touchline because he does that job better than anyone else."

  16. Walkin' Memphis

    Memphis Depay left Manchester United for Lyon in January 2017 after a disappointing 18-month stint at Old Trafford.

    The 24-year-old has scored 28 goals in 69 games for the French side since.

    United negotiated a buy-back and sell-on clause alongside a fee that could rise to £21.7m.

  17. Valencia will not play tonight

    Young Boys v Manchester United (20:00 BST)

    Antonio Valancia has been ruled out of the Reds' clash with Young Boys tonight - due to the artificial pitch.

    The Ecuadorian is coming back from a knee injury and will not be risked.

    Manager Jose Mourinho said: "We decided not to bring Valencia because his knee is not a knee that needs an artificial pitch," he said.

  18. 'Daniel Sturridge is a £50m player'

    Liverpool 2-1 PSG

    Stephen Warnock

    Ex-Liverpool defender on BBC Radio 5 live

    Sturridge brings something different to the team in that he is a natural talent on the ball as well. When he gets possession, you expect things to happen - and he did not disappoint against the French champions.

    SMS Message: Liverpool's front trio are nowhere near the form of last season so far. They've won 6 from 6 (West Ham aside) with moments of individual brilliance and a more solid back line, making them less vulnerable to the old slip ups.

  20. Costa banned for spitting

    Valencia v Juventus (20:00 BST)

    Juve open their Champions League campaign against Valencia tonight, and Douglas Costa is expected to play.

    The player has been banned for four games after being found guilty of spitting at Sassuolo's Federico Di Francesco on Sunday, but the ban only applies to the Serie A games.
