Premier League clubs managed to stay unbeaten as the exciting third week of the UEFA Champions League concluded in venues across Europe earlier today. All five premier league clubs were on top of the table alongside PSG, Barcelona and Besiktas.
On Wednesday, Manchester City, Beşiktaş and Liverpool made the headlines with dominant wins over Napoli, Monaco, and Maribor. Salah and Firmino scored two apiece in Liverpool’s 7-0 goal fest in Ljudski vrt, Maribor. Sterling and Jesus gave Manchester City an early boost but Napoli fought back in the second half. However, City managed to hold the lead to seal a hard-fought 2-1 win at the Etihad.
Meanwhile, Harry Kane’s outstanding finish gave Tottenham a point against Real Madrid away from home as Athletico Madrid continued to struggle over Qarabag.
Earlier today, Ex-city player Edin Dzeko and Kolarov gave Roma a well-deserved point over Chelsea at the Bridge. The blues were well on top with a two-goal lead earlier in the first half. Hazard scored twice but Dzeko was equally up to the challenge with two goals of his own.
PSG, Manchester United, Juventus, Barcelona and Bayern Munich won all three points over Anderlecht, Benfica, Sporting, Olympiacos, and Celtic.
“It’s not too early to say the tide is changing. The performances alone are saying that. We could get two or three clubs into the quarters or semi-finals.” Phil Neville said on BBC Radio 5 live.
