    Porto 2-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho: "When you win matches, you perform well, it is easy to know your best team. 

    "When the team is not winning on a regular basis it is normal that you have to make changes. After games like tonight it is difficult to analyse."

  5. Porto 'spectacular'

    Porto 2-1 Chelsea

    Porto manager Julen Lopetegui: "The players' attitude was amazing, spectacular. It was our best performance of the season.

    "I have to congratulate my team. This three points are totally deserved. It was tough and unfair to go to the dressing room at half-time with a draw, but we reacted well."

  9. Mourinho not overly critical

    Porto 2-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho: "The most basic thing in football is a defensive set-play. We had chances after that to get a positive result and we had a clear penalty - so for me I am not here to criticise the players.

    "I am not going to point the finger but two mistakes cost us the game. The team played well against a difficult opponent. The Champions League brings a different atmosphere."

  10. 'Bad luck and lack of concentration'

    Arsenal 2-3 Olympiakos

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger: "It is still possible of course to qualify but it is difficult to swallow losing a game like that. We lost it on a lack of defensive concentration and bad luck. They had four shots on goal and we conceded three goals.

    "The turning point at 2-2 is we give them a goal again straight away. If it stays 2-2 for five minutes we win the game.

    "A goalkeeper can make a mistake that doesn't explain that we lose the game. It happened to Petr Cech already this season [against West Ham]."

  12. 'A ridiculous goal'

    Porto 2-1 Chelsea

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho: "We watch dozens and dozens of repetitions of Porto taking corners. We were completely ready for that and in a moment when the game is under control we concede a goal that is ridiculous.

    "They hit the post from a similar mistake. Apart from that the game was balanced. Two ridiculous moments and we were punished."

    New manager, same results for Brentford.

    Their 2-0 loss to Birmingham is their second home defeat in four days and they remain just a point ahead of the bottom three.

    Blues meanwhile leapfrog Burnley and Cardiff into fifth place.

    Wolves climb to 10th with their 3-0 win over 10-man Fulham. Tom Cairney's dismissal led to a one-sided game, with substitute Sheyi Ojo scoring one and making another before James Henry's free kick made it three.

    Fulham drop to 14th.

    "The word from inside Chelsea on Baba Rahman is that he's a bit rash. Maybe tonight under the spotlight Jose Mourinho probably thought he couldn't leave out Branislav Ivanovic by moving Cesar Azpilicueta to the right.

    Belarusian champions BATE Borisov have stormed into a 3-0 lead at home to Roma in the most surprising scoreline of the night so far. 

    But not to be outdone, Bayern Munich scored four in the first half hour (two for Robert Lewandowski) to lead 4-0 against Dinamo Zagreb.

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer

    "Murmurs of discontent around The Emirates as Arsenal troop off. Arsenal simply must get back into this game - and why on earth, with the stakes so high, has manager Arsene Wenger left first-choice keeper Petr Cech on the bench in favour of David Ospina?

    "If he is carrying any sort of injury, why is he on the bench? Does not make any sense and Wenger must hope it is not a costly decision."

    "The goal is only what Chelsea have deserved.

    "But Iker Casillas was stood behind the wall, almost in the middle of the goal. Anything that bends in around him was always going to be a goal. 

    "That will change Jose Mourinho's half-time team talk, but I think they did really well under all sorts of pressure in that opening 45 minutes."

    Willian scores a free-kick

    With the last kick of the half! Referee Antonio Lahoz blows his whistle seconds after the ball hits the net and Chelsea are level.

    His team-mates may be struggling, but Willian is on fire. Wonderful free-kick. Over the wall, into the net. Chelsea had three men on the end of the wall, worked it well.

    "That's a brilliant goal from Porto. Brahimi got himself running at Ivanovic, who knew he couldn't tackle him. 

    "Begovic did really well to stop the shot but it came straight out to Andre. The goalscorer reacted quickest, but Begovic nearly got to the second one as well.

    David Opsina OG (40 mins)

    Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina's fumble sees Olympiakos regain the lead

    "What do those officials behind the goal do? What's the point of them?"

    We've all asked it a million times, and now they make a big call. First of all, it's awful from goalkeeper David Ospina as he collects a corner from the right and then somehow lets it though his hands to bounce on - or just over - the line.

    He gathers it in but the official behind the goal says goal!

  117. GOAL - Porto 1-0 Chelsea

    Andre Andre (39 mins)

    Andre Andre scores

    Asmir Begovic makes a superb save but he can't deny Porto.

    Again, Chelsea skipper Branislav Ivanovic is at fault in the build-up though. Yacine Brahimi takes him on, Ivanovic has the mobility of a 1984 NIssan Sunny, Brahimi's shot is palmed out by Begovic and Andre Andre follows it up with a powerful strike.

    League Two update

    It's the joy of six for Stanley: undefeated in their last six, Accrington are a goal ahead at home to Yeovil thanks to Josh Windass, who bags his sixth of the season.

    Felipe Pardo celebrates after giving Olympiakos the lead

    Arsenal's ragged defence does cost them as the Greek side take the lead from the corner. It's pulled back deep to Felipe Pardo lurking on the edge of the area. He connects well, but the ball takes a huge detour off the backheel of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and into the far corner.

  131. CLOSE!

    Porto 0-0 Chelsea

    Vincent Aboubakar pins his man with a ball into feet, he rolls the defender and shoots high and wide over the bar. Porto then think they should have a penalty - Branislav Ivanovic gets the ball but he does dive in a bit.

    That is a nasty one. Bruno Martins Indi is late on Pedro as Chelsea counter, and he hammers the Spanish winger right on the top of the ankle. Could easily have injured Pedro, and the Dutch defender is booked.

    Wide open at The Emirates - moments of anxiety for Arsenal while opportunities on the break for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott at the other end. Olympiakos coach Marco Silva was so peturbed by one Arsenal counter that he indulged in a spectacular Basil Fawlty-style dance of fury in his technical area.

  141. Elsewhere in Europe

    BATE Borisov of Belarus (that's Borisov Automobile and Tractor Electronics for you and me) have taken a surprise lead at home to Roma - they're 2-0 up already!

  142. GREAT SAVE!

    What a pass! What a touch! Pedro's first touch is wonderful to tame a ball pinged into him, he can't quite get the ball out of his feet though and Iker Casillas is able to make the save with his feet.
