  1. Good night!

    That's us closing down for tonight.

    See you back here on Friday evening for some FA Cup action - QPR v Watford.

  2. 'We played with confidence'

    Malmo 1-2 Chelsea


    Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri talking to BT Sport after his side's 2-1 win over Malmo:

    "I think we played a good match against a team who are very physical, we were scared a bit of set pieces

    "We were in control of the match and we deserved to win with more goals.

    "I am happy because we played with confidence and it wasn't really very easy after the last match [the 6-0 loss to Manchester City].

    "Yes, we played very well and we conceded on a mistake and that can happen but the level of attention was really very good for 90 minutes so I am very happy, but we know we have to gain the qualification in the next match.

    "I think I am always confident but sometimes we had the wrong approach with matches so we need to be careful in every match."

  3. 'We just made too many mistakes'

    FT: Celtic 0-2 Valencia

    Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers tells BT Sport: “It was a disappointing game to lose considering we made a good start. We were bright, had a good intensity in our pressing and we circulated the ball well.

    “At this level you have to concentrate and you can’t put pressure on ourselves. Tonight we put pressure on ourselves.

    “But we made too many mistakes, we weren’t creating that passing and it got away from us. When you present those chances to a team with that quality they can punish you.

    “It’s a disappointing performance in the end. When you make the number of mistakes we made with simple passes you become a wee bit safe. And that was the story of our game, really.

    "It’s a big challenge for us but if we get that first goal (next week) it maybe gives us hope in the tie.”

    Brendan Rodgers
  4. 'Frustrating to concede that goal'

    Malmo 1-2 Chelsea


    Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta to BT Sport: "It was a tough defeat last Sunday but we are in the knockout stage and it's important to start well. We had chances to have a more comfortable result but they scored and there is still a lot to play for next week.

    "In the second half we had whole control of the game and had a lot of chances, it's frustrating to concede a goal and not to have a better result. It's still all to play for.

    "This tournament is very important, we are fighting for trophies and to be in the top four. We are in the Carabao Cup final next week, every trophy is important."

    Any pressure eased on Maurizio Sarri?

  6. Post update

    Malmo 1-2 Chelsea

    Olivier Giroud is the first Chelsea player to score in four successive games in European competition since Victor Moses in May 2013.

  7. 'We have nothing to lose'

    FT: Celtic 0-2 Valencia

    A crestfallen Celtic captain Scott Brown tells BT Sport: “It was a tough night for us to be honest.

    "We tried to play out from the back but our passing wasn’t the best throughout the whole team.

    "We will go and try and press them high up the park and force them into making mistakes.

    "It just wasn’t meant to be and we will go again next Thursday. We have nothing to lose over there."

    Celtic captain Scott Brown had an off night in the middle of the park - but wasn't the only one

    Pranav M: Most clubs take a season to transition to the new manager's philosophy. I feared Emery is an average manager, and it shows. Our unbeaten run had Wenger's attacking tactics and Emery's press. Now we have only the press...maybe not even that

    Josh Brackley: Arsenal need a revamp from the top. New owner who’s willing to invest, a world class manager and a new team. Lacazette and Aubameyang up front with Ozil in behind guarantees 40 goals a season if used properly. That’s a start at least

    Jon Spurling: An awful performance by Arsenal tonight, but several on my timeline who were calling for Wenger’s head this time last year are now calling for that of Emery; ridiculous- the man needs at least three transfer windows before anyone can judge him.

  10. 'An absolute canter for the Spaniards'

    FT: Celtic 0-2 Valencia

    Tom English

    BBC Scotland's chief sports writer at Celtic Park

    That was as easy a win as Valencia could have possibly hoped for in their wildest dreams. An absolute canter for the Spaniards. Celtic were really poor. Didn’t turn up. They should be bitterly disappointed, This was a non-performance.

    Valencia celebrate

    JE Rouges: Fair play to Malmö, noise and support for 90 minutes straight and a few good local players in the squad. Our front line as static as the referee’s book tonight. Disappointing yet again

  12. BreakingWorld Cup 2030 bid

    It seems a long way off but Argentina, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay are going to present a joint World Cup 2030 host bid.

    Morocco, Spain and Portugal are already in the running.

  13. Wesley wins it for Brugge

    Club Brugge have turned it around against Red Bull Salzburg, with Wesley's late goal giving them a 2-1 home win. Benjamin Kololli's goal has given Zurich something to cheer, but they still lost 3-1 at home to Napoli. That is surely tie over.

    Ludek Pernica has given Viktoria Plzen the slight advantage over Dinamo Zagreb, while a third-minute goal from former Leeds loanee Alfonso Pedraza has given Villarreal victory at Sporting Lisbon.

  15. 'Overall there was lots of good play'

    Malmo 1-2 Chelsea

    Former Chelsea and midfielder Joe Cole on BT Sport:

    "You can't make the mistakes that they did a few times in the second half, even against a Malmo side like this and they could have got back in it.

    "But overall there was lots of good play, a good reaction and I'm really pleased to see Ross Barkley on the scoresheet, and think with more minutes he will show what he can do."

    Former Liverpool striker Michael Owen: "I think Sarri will be a happy man tonight."

    Ryan: Chelsea and Spurs the only teams doing England proud so far in Europe this week!

    Aidan: Chelsea are losing their cool against a side they should be dominating, Kante should be put back into a holding position to support the defensive line
