Good night!

Can an English side win the Champions League? It would be the first time since 2012 of course and it would be a turn-up for the books.We're a long way from finding out whether Manchester City can go all the way - but tomorrow we see how Chelsea and Manchester United fare.

And Celtic too.

'Not so sure' City can win CL

Manchester City 2-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

There are only three or four teams capable of winning the Champions League and I think Manchester City are the best-placed English team.

But I am not sure they are at the level to go and win the tournament. They have an unbelievable squad to pick from so they won't have a problem there.

Do they have that something extra to win the Champions League? I'm not so sure.

Kane competing with Ronaldo

Champions League top goalscorers this season...

Harry Kane - 5

Cristiano Ronaldo - 4

Wissam Ben Yedder - 4

We may be seeing more of Fabian Delph at full-back then. A real shame as Benjamin Mendy had started brilliantly at City.

Bad news about injured Manchester City full-back Benjamin Mendy?

Pep Guardiola: "After tomorrow he is travelling to Barcelona and we are going to see.

"It is very frustrating, firstly for him first as a person - it is very sad for him.

"And, for the way we want to play, we will lose a lot. It is a major set-back.

"He is a unique player. We will see in January about a new signing. We have alternatives."

Ronaldo at it again

'It was must-win'

Apoel Nicosia 0-3 Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino: "It was a tough game. They were very motivated. It was important to get three points. It was a must win. We were fantastic. Today there were some good performances from players who are not regulars and a hat-trick for Harry Kane, it was a fantastic performance.

"I am happy because in some games maybe we dominate and create lot of chances and cannot score. Tonight we were clinical in front of goal."

'Players are not of the quality they should be'

Spartak Moscow 1-1 Liverpool

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Liverpool clearly have an issue with the two goalkeepers. They need at least one centre-back so they can stop conceding goals.

Until they address the defensive problems, I don't see them having the consistency to challenge in the Premier League.

You get top quality players that can perform in the system better than others. The players that are playing in this system are not of the quality they should be.

'Delph man of the match'

Manchester City 2-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Fabian Delph

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: "A lot of credit to what we have done. The way Shakhtar play, they demand a lot of us but our high pressing was brilliant. We had problems in the first half, we did not make enough passes in a row but the second half was much, much, much better. We are so, so happy for the win.

"They were very narrow and there was little space in between but then our full-backs were able to dictate and created a lot of chances for another four or five goals.

"Even at 1-0, we were stable. We did not score goals but it was a demanding game. The next game against Napoli will be even tougher.

"Fabian Delph was man of the match. When a guy who is so kind and can help the team, he is intelligent, is physical and never loses the ball. He controlled Marlos and did it very well."

'Proud of the way we played'

Manchester City 2-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Shakhtar Donetsk coach Paulo Fonseca: "I am unhappy because we lost but must be proud with the way we played. We showed great courage with the way we behaved on the field - we tried to play, and keep possession and we were attacking very well.

"We were very compact and we were not leaving many gaps for them, and trying to attack them. I always watch all the matches of City and this year City have not met a team who has created any problems and that is why I am not happy with the loss.

"I think all our players were playing at a very good level and as I said, it is difficult to come here and demonstrate such courage as our guys have demonstrated today."

Bale's Back

Borussia Dortmund 1-3 Real Madrid

Gareth Bale has been under fire as of late but his sensational volley tonight surely silenced some doubters.

Liverpool's attack to blame...

LFC need a striker and Klopp will need to do everything to bring Lewandowski!!!

Sturridge needs to take a leaf out of Harry Kane’s book on how to pass and finish off chances

Lewis

I'm a Liverpool fan I think the players did ok but seems to be no passion with in the squad loads of chances but no clinical finishing is Jurgen right man for us??

Spartak Moscow 1-1 Liverpool

Liverpool now face Maribor back-to-back. Pick six points up from those two games and the world's a much rosier place for the Reds.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, speaking to BT Sport: "It was a crazy game. To create all those chances and only score one goal feels average.

"What can I say? We created, created and created. Where is the real point for criticism? We tried with all we had. The effort was great.

"We have to be more clinical 100% for sure. The only way to change it is to do it again."

Like all players, you want to win things and get medals. If you can't show your grandson a few medals then you are missing something.

Tottenham probably had their best chance of winning the Premier League title two years ago when Leicester proved everyone wrong.

They just can't find the back of the net!

What do you think is behind Liverpool's mishaps this season?

Liverpool
Reuters

That performance has angered me more than away at the Ethiad. It's no good having that sort of pace if your team's overall decision making is so poor. Lost count of the amount of times the wrong pass was played in the final third. Our tactic seemed to be get it to the full backs and get the ball in, yet Liverpool aren't exactly famed for their aerial threat.

Sam, Liverpool

Liverpool are so frustrating, so effective going forward but can't finish, they need a prolific striker, Daniel Sturridge isn’t the player he was, so greedy and just wastes chances left right and centre.

Lewis

Same old rubbish from Klopp. No natural striker, no leader in midfield, no class at the back. Bring back Rafa now.

Ant H, Birmingham

No luck for Liverpool

'Kane is phenomenal'

Harry Kane is absolutely remarkable. The last two or three years he has been phenomenal. He doesn't score in August which is remarkable too!

It broke my heart when he scored against Scotland but he just looks like he is going to score in every game he plays.

Sergio Aguero is a terrific striker, Alvaro Morata is on fire, Romelu Lukaku has power and strength but at this moment in time I would go with Harry Kane.

He is a player's player. He works his socks off. Midfield players like him because he will chase lost causes and he will make an average ball look like a good one.

Do Liverpool need a top striker?

lfcway: Can't blame defence for this. Created enough chances to win this game comfortably. Need to be more clinical.

Michal: 'Don't need a striker' 'Don't need a defender' 'Don't need a keeper' absolute banter LFC. So how are you Europa League?

Gordon: Sturridge needs to be sold. He's wasteful and selfish. Simply not Liverpool's standard

'Kane good enough for Real Madrid and Barcelona'

Apoel Nicosia 0-3 Tottenham

Ally McCoist

Former Scotland striker on BBC Radio 5 live

Yes, he is good enough to play with Real Madrid and Barcelona but I'm not sure he looks like their type of centre-forward.

Barcelona don't really play with an out and out centre-forward, they like to play down the channels and Real Madrid are similar.

Kane is like an old-fashioned centre-forward and is a wonderful talent. He certainly has the ability to play for those clubs but I don't think he's their kind of player.

'We need to be more ruthless'

Spartak Moscow 1-1 Liverpool

Liverpool

Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson, speaking to BT Sport: "It's disappointing. We controlled the game from start to finish so we should win it comfortably.

"We have got to make sure we don’t give goals away first and foremost.

"On another day it could have been three or four. The performance was decent but not enough to win the game. I thought we defended well for the majority of the game. But we have to finish the game off and be more ruthless."

Manchester City 2-0 Shakhtar Donetsk

Manchester City

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne tells BT Sport: "I definitely think it is not my best game, it is the way it goes. It was hard graft today but this team can play. We were better in the second half, created more chances and in the end it was a deserved victory.

"It is better if we score earlier. We will score five, six goals or we can win 1-0, 2-0 too. It was another clean sheet.

"Sergio Aguero is our number one penalty taker. Even if he misses, we still have the confidence in him and he will get a few more penalties in his career."

'A very proud night'

Save that...

Harry Kane after his hat-trick for Tottenham: "It is a very proud night for myself and the team. I try and score every game - It is a bonus when I get three.

"We weren't pleased with the first-half and a couple of chances could have gone the other way. We were more clinical and in the Champions League that is what you have got to be.

"We are missing a few players but the lads who stepped in were fantastic. We have a solid squad and you have to be ready. 3-0 away in the Champions League no matter who you play is a good result."

Apoel Nicosia 0-3 Tottenham

Harry Kane had 39 touches for Spurs tonight - the fewest of any Spurs player who started the game.

Apoel had 15 shots, Spurs 16. It was a closer game than the scoreline suggests but the number 10 put the chances away superbly. Again.

Tonight in the Championship

  • Cardiff win to go top
  • Preston score late at Hull to win 2-1 and go within a point of second place.
  • Aston Villa thrash Burton 4-0 and are two points off the play-offs.
  • Sunderland remain in the relegation zone with a 5-2 defeat at Ipswich.
  • Norwich continue their good form as James Maddison scores the only goal in a victory at Middlesbrough.
  • Bottom club Bolton lose 2-0 at Bristol City and fail to score for a sixth successive Championship game.

It was all about Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a brace on his 400th appearance for Real Madrid.

Gareth Bale kicked things off with a stunning volley in the 18th minute and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's second-half goal wasn't enough to inspire a comeback for Dortmund.

Incredible Kane

Apoel Nicosia 0-3 Tottenham

John Southall

BBC Radio Five Live football reporter

He marched off at the end with the match ball and it is turning into a spectacular September for Harry Kane.

It was a wonderful hat-trick, twice he nonchalantly swept in from 16 yards out and the third he headed into the bottom corner.

He makes goalscoring look easy and has the air of a man who knows he's going to score. The stats are stacking up - it's nine goals in the last five games and five Champions League goals this season.

He said this week that he wants to compete with Messi and Ronaldo, well he's now doing that.
