United beat Wolfsburg 3-1 away, despite playing without a defence, Mickey Owen scores all 3, cue laborious debate about whether he should go to the World Cup. United win the group and CSKA come second.
Chelsea gift Apoel a late equaliser and draw 2-2 at the Bridge, apparently Essien's goal was pretty good. Chelsea and Porto through.
Bayern beat Juve 4-1 in Turin to qualify for the second round, keeper Jorg Butt scores a penalty.
Milan and Real also through.
Liverpool warm up for the Europa League at home to Fiorentina, hopefully Torres plays and picks up another knock, ruling him out of Sunday's game.
Arsenal take an even younger squad to Olympiakos than the one that lost City last week. Debuts for Kyle bartley and (much to the press' delight) Tom Cruise in defence. At least 3 Mission Impossible/Top Guns headlines tomorrow depending on the result.
Adem Lajic says his move to United was because of Work Permit issues, not financial problems or him going a bit 'Freddy Adu' in the last year.
Arsenal want Pavlyuchenko according to his agent. Seems unlikely, but I've always thought he was pretty decent and he's not cup tied in Europe so under £10m and I'd be happy with that.
Couple of Citeh players and staff have swine flu. Wayne Bridge wants to prove he isn't shit, but will have to wait at least a month as he's gone and done his ankle.
