    I saw the first half and was sure that Spurs would pull it off. It was a good game but they looked the better side to me. Followed the 2nd half on two (bbc and eurosport) crappy matchcasts and couldnt get a feel for the 2nd half. Was shocked when Juve scored twice. I will watch it later. Sorry to see spurs go. But would rather Liverpool draw Juve then Spurs if it came to that.

    watched it a few times...think it had backspin on it, making it float away, like it would have if it brushed off his forearm....

    Cheering for Arsenal today.

    Wow Arsenal actually showed up to play today. Not a stunning performance but solid enough to get them past AC Milan ... as long as they turn up to play next time at the Emirates.

    Solid. The right word. I was so surprised to see them play with such spirit! Good they killed the game in the first half. Though Mkhi, Ramsey and Ozil were standout, I should say Welbz was the best. Gave his heart in the game till the end. Now, knowing this Arsenal side, do I believe that they'll manage to get through the second round?

    still got love for Welbz.

    happy they won...maybe theyll do enough to get through.... just give you gooners a moment of solace. (As long as you dont read online comments) :jack

    really though. Humor aside, Don't like seeing them falter, unless against us, or they are closer in the table of course lol.

    Good match.. can’t stay for the back half. IMO.. Liverpool are making chances and I expect to see them on the board, theyare making too many silly mistakes at midfield to come back for a win. The pressure of Old Trafford is showing.

    For the time being, Liverpool slip closer to Chelsea's clutches. Let's hope Bournemouth can turn over Tottenham on Sunday. Sphincters would tighten in North London, with a match between them awaiting at Stamford Bridge. That one might put 2016's brutal affair to shame, if Spurs go in determined to hack and bruise again.

    wonder if Utd's Liverpool performance will help lift them for Sevilla this afternoon?

    Even though we've beaten both them and Chelsea in the last month.... still have my doubts LOL

    trying my best to like Mourinho. its easier said than done.

    Well, Mourinho - "I've sat in this chair twice before, with Porto - Man Utd out, and with Real Madrid - Man Utd out. So this is nothing new for this football club." The fans must really love this guy!

    Chelsea are in a good place for todays match. Willian is hot and a couple of away goals are a definate possibility if Conte choses to go for them. But they won’t win with nine players behind the ball.

    TFC lost to Tigres via a bullshit last minute penalty last night, but advance on aggregate! Big result for the MLS champs!

    Seba's free kick - https://streamable.com/guppl

    Also, haha ManUtd and congrats to Roma! That Roma game was very entertaining!

    In the Premier League?

    City and Liverpool already through to the next round in CL. Although Liverpool are not English, they are Scousers... :lol3

    Let's see if Chelsea go through or go out on their feet (or on their knees)...
