'Both managers will be happy'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

One thing that has been evident in the first 45 minutes is the pace from both sides. It has been very exciting.

Both managers will be reasonably happy but equally they will be happy not to have conceded any goals.

'Sane so much pace'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Leroy Sane has so much pace and aggression and it makes it very diffiicult for defenders to go against him.

I can't believe we have not had a goal scored in this game yet.

'Brilliant defending'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

We just saw the unbelievable pace of Kyle Walker.

He is tackled in the Shakhtar Donetsk 18-yard box and he ends up making a tackle in his own 18-yard box.

Brilliant defending.

'Poor finish'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

What a chance.

Kevin de Bruyne takes a lovely touch and he is well onside. He does the hard thing and gives the keeper the eyes but he does not hit the target. It is a poor finish.

That was clearly the best chance of the game so far.

'City have a game on their hands'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Donetsk certainly haven't been disappointing. They have been the more attacking-minded of the two sides.

They are not playing like a side who have not won in England.

Manchester City have a game on their hands.

'Good game!'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

I can't believe we've not had much action from the goalkeepers because there have been two or three good chances.

The forward players on the pitch have made it a good game so far.

'Donetsk more dangerous'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

There is no doubt that City have their work cut out.

The Ukrainians have possibly looked the more dangerous of the two sides.

'Donetsk look sharp'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

I'm loving the football we are seeing from Shakhtar Donetsk.

They are playing the ball into the wide men well. They really do look sharp, particularly in the last five minutes.

'Good opening'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

I have enjoyed the opening stages.

They are comfortable on the ball Shakhtar Donetsk, but Manchester City look threatening going forward, as you would expect.

It's been a good opening to this game.

And that is beautiful one touch football from Shakhtar.

It was an important tackle too but what a lovely move.

'What a pass'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

What a pass that was from De Bruyne. It was a fantastic run from Gabriel Jesus and De Buryne has acknowledged the run.

Brilliant pass.

'Unusually poor'

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

It's a great ball actually but David Silva took an unusually poor touch for him.

Chance lost.

Risky move

Manchester City 0-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

I can't believe the risks the Ukranians are taking in the first five minutes.

They are giving Manchester City lots of space.

'Liverpool attack under pressure'

Spartak Moscow v Liverpool (19:45 BST)

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

It must get to Liverpool's midfield and forward line because they are under pressure to score goals. They must know they will concede.

It is a big game for Liverpool tonight.

'Liverpool have a problem'

The great sides over the years could go away from home and win 1-0. If Liverpool aren't playing well, they have to score three goals to win a game.

They don't look comfortable at the back. If you start the game thinking you have to score two or three goals to win, you have a problem.

Daniel Hennessy was with five dogs that were not on a lead in Queens Park, Bolton, in April when a man was bitten. Armed police later shot dead two pitbull-type dogs.

The 39-year-old, of Halliwell, Bolton, pleaded guilty to owning a dog which caused injury while dangerously out of control and to possession of cannabis.

At Bolton Crown Court, he was jailed for 11 months but released because of time served on remand and he was also banned from keeping dogs for seven years.
