Celtic 3-3 Manchester City

That was a match to savour. As for the atmosphere...wow! Great game. 3-3 #celticvcity

'We were brilliant'

Celtic 3-3 Manchester City

Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers on BT Sport: "I can't criticise the team, but there's always elements we can be better in. We were brilliant, the pressing and the energy. Every time we went forward we looked like we could score.

"Apart from the Barcelona game these players have been operating at a high level this season. Now, to do it against that team, it was a magnificent performance.

"How we defend is what we've been working on. All my teams have played with that intent. We have players that are developing and evolving all the time. 

"Tonight, how they played and performed was top class. That will give them confidence going forward."

'I'm focused on Arsenal'

Arsene Wenger on England rumours: "I am focused 100% on Arsenal and my priority will always be to this club. Nothing will change on that."

Arsenal 2-0 Basel

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger: "I would say the game was of quality and the win was comfortable. The only regret was that we did not score enough tonight considering what we created. Overall, some excellent football.

"Similarly to Saturday, the first half was good pace and second half was slower.

"The most important thing comes from the player Theo Walcott himself. Top quality people assess performances in an objective way. Then you have to respond to what you see. At the moment, he is doing that well.

"Alexis Sanchez had an extra game but unfortunately he could not score, it was one of those nights but his contribution was fantastic.

"We play Ludogorets twice now and if we come positive out of them, it will depend on our direct result against Paris St-Germain.

"We need to have the desire to improve and not be happy with what you have. You have to have the urgency and focus high. We have not won anything and the target is to get stronger."

'It's OK, it's one point'

Celtic 3-3 Manchester City

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola on BT Sport: "It was difficult for us. I'm happy with the reaction from the players, it's not easy to score three goals away.

"I don't know how many the chances they had after the third goal. We should have won it.

"It's disappointing to concede at the beginning of each half, but that's football. I know how difficult it is here and they started so strong. The second goal was unlucky, and I don't remember any action for them after they scored their third goal.

"It's OK, it's one point, we didn't lose. You always learn. Now we have Barcelona, maybe the best team. We think about Spurs and, after the international break we'll think about that."

Kumail Jaffer: Sterling has stepped up his game tenfold since Pep came in. A case of a 'fallen' star rising again?  

'We learned from Barcelona defeat'

Celtic 3-3 Manchester City

Celtic's Scott Sinclair on BT Sport: "The fans were right behind us and the atmosphere was unbelievable. That's what spurred us on. We kept going, going forward and creating chances.

"We keep improving. We learned from the Barcelona defeat. We took the negatives out of it and performed tonight."

'I'm enjoying my football'

Arsenal 2-0 Basel

Arsenal goalscorer Theo Walcott on BT Sport: "We were very professional today. The intensity was there from the start, it died off towards the end but you can understand that. It shows how far we have come, we need to move on now to Sunday.

"I am working hard, enjoying my football. I just try to improve everyday. Things are going well but this will all be forgotten about really, it is all about the next day.

"This team is very strong at the moment and we should be proud.

"Not many teams would like to play us, that is for sure. We cannot get ahead of ourselves, we have a lot to do and hopefully the past can change. We have so much experience in the Champions League realise how important that top spot is."

It was fantastic. I enjoyed every second. Celtic hung on in there. Any England fans feeling down right now, cheer up - Sterling is phenomenal at the moment. It's a great game - neither side deserved to lose.

Celtic 3-3 Manchester City

Hats off to Pep Guardiola. He has turned Raheem Sterling into a real player at Manchester City. He has been the visitor's best player in this game. Only a determined block by Scott Brown prevents the forward getting a decent-looking shot on target.

Into three minutes of stoppage time.

Benfica have scored what is surely only going to be another consolation goal at Napoli. Another substitute, Salvio, has scored to make it 4-2 to the Italian side.

Arsenal 2-0 Basel

It's been a disappointing performance by the Basel players apart from Tomas Vaclik. The keeper has done as well has he can do against a rampant Gunners side and he really takes one for the team as he stops a close-range strike by Alexis Sanchez with a, ahem, sensitive part of his body. 

Into two minutes of stoppage time.

Mahrus Anwar: Whether Celtic can take anything from this game is not the point. They are proving to PL teams that Man. City are stoppable!  

YELLOW CARD

Arsenal 2-0 Basel

Alexis Sanchez twists, turns and draws a foul out of Mohamed Elyounoussi to win a free-kick just outside the area. Yellow card for the Basel substitute before Santi Cazorla takes the free-kick, but he hits the wall.

It's all gone a bit quiet at the Emirates, both on the pitch and in the stands as this game peters towards its conclusion. 

Arsenal are in control, so much so they can afford to do a bit of showboating as a bit of one touch passing wakes up the home fans and prompts a few oles.

SUBSTITUTION

OK, it is not that good a night for Guedes. His goal makes it Napoli 4-1 Benfica.

CLOSE!

Arsenal 2-0 Basel

How did he miss that!? 

Arsenal haven't been quite as energetic as they were in the first half but when they turn do turn it on again it should result in the third.

Santi Cazorla feeds Theo Walcott down by the byeline and he clips it back for Alexis Sanchez, who is six yards out and dead centre of goal, but the forward shoots wide.

Edinson Cavani has also bagged his second of the night to make it Ludogorets 1-3 PSG. The home side missed a penalty just before Cavani scored his second to rub salt firmly into the wound.

It's a little bit desperate now and again for Celtic, but that's to be expected. They know Aguero will keep running as long as he's on the pitch, looking to get in behind. They cannot let up for a second.
