    And that's all folks!

    See you tomorrow for the Europa League. Hopefully.

    No? Oh come on...

    Man Utd 2-1 Wolfsburg

  3. Are you going to tell him or me?

    Rafael Benítez, Real Madrid coach, speaking about Cristiano Ronaldo's scoring record: "I hope that Ronaldo doesn't ever stop scoring and that we can keep benefiting from him."  

  4. Rocking Ronaldo

    We need to talk about Cristiano. 

    He scored both against Malmo taking his tally to 501 career goals. Not content with that, he also went level with Raul as Real Madrid's all-time top scorer.

    But - and here is a stat for you - Raul did it in 741 games. Ronaldo in 'just' 308, that's 433 games to spare. 

    The stage is set for him on Sunday when Real travel to the Calderon for the Madrid Derby against Atletico, Who would bet on him overtaking Raul's record there? Not us, that's for sure, 

  5. 'Worst game of the season?'

    Manchester City

    Kevin de Bruyne

    Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne: "We only played the last half hour, in the first hour it was very difficult for us. This was our worst match this season."

  6. 'Penalty was lucky'

    Man Utd 2-1 Wolfsburg

    Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal on BT Sport: "It was very difficult because they scored so early. Then we did very well, we created a lot of chances. We don't finish it and it was a lucky penalty I think.

    "Of course it is a penalty but there are some refs not whistling for that. We have created much more chances, Rooney and Depay could have scored and you finish the game.

    "Then we score and after that it was suffering. A lot of players are very tired, a combination of a lot of matches but we didn't give much away. How many chances have we given away? Maybe one.

    "We have to keep the ball better in the second half."

  7. Post update

    From one striker to another

    Alan Shearer scored 260 Premier League goals. Cristiano Ronaldo got his 500th career goal today.

    If you scored 20 goals a season - still a decent benchmark - you'd have to play for 25 years to get that many...

    Kyle Utterson: Those that keep having a go at Wayne Rooney are clueless. He's still top drawer. United are better with Rooney in the team. Rooney's record for club and country is excellent plus his workrate and runs create space for others. 

    Meetal Tailor: Good win tonight. Even better given we played with 10 men the entire game. Still wondering where Rooney was? Totally absent. 

    Kyunlin: That United came back from a goal down shows the progress we've made. Wouldn't have happened last year.

  9. 'A strange game'

    Monchengladbach 1-2 Man City

    Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini: "It was a strange game! For 65 minutes both teams had very good chances to score, we did not defend well. In the last half hour we improved a lot and won the game.

    "We knew that Borussia have a very fast team. Joe Hart made some brilliant saves. It could have been 4-4 after an hour but then we dominated the game.

    "We got a little bit of luck at the end but we have had plenty of bad luck recently." 

  10. 'We didn't play well'

    Monchengladbach 1-2 Man City

    Joe Hart

    Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart: "We didn't play well today, we were disjointed as we had been in the last few games. But we deserved to win, we had some really good chances. It may have come late but Sergio Aguero is a cool guy and he will score.

    "Kevin de Bruyne warned us about them [Monchengladbach], they have some good movement and work themselves into the ground. We won and it puts us in a good position.

    "For the penalty no stone is unturned. I've seen a lot of penalties from a lot of players - we have good guys in the analysis department. We always take the scenic route in Europe!"

    Sownak Bose: Wayne Rooney was comfortably the worst player on the pitch. Which is basically the usual for him these days. 

    Chris Knaggs: To the Rooney bashers: he is the captain and heart of constantly improving team. His game has changed, deal with it. 

    Seth Gogo Egoeh: Since Rooney started losing hair his performances follow suit. He's been a big disappointment tonight.


    Man Utd 2-1 Wolfsburg

    Manchester United midfielder Juan Mata, speaking to BT Sport: "It was a very tough game because we were physically tired at the end. But we did what we had to do. 

    "The manager made a list of penalty takers and I am the first right now and I have confidence. We knew we had to win today. We are happy today."

  13. Elsewhere in Europe

    The whistles have been blown all over Europe. 

    In Manchester City's group it's two wins out of two for Juventus. They beat Sevilla 2-0 in Turin, 

    PSV, who beat Manchester United last time out, lost 3-2 to CSKA in Moscow.

    PSG beat Shakhtar 3-0 in Lviv. They are locked at the top of the Group A table with Real Madrid who beat 10-man Malmo 2-0. 


    Man Utd 2-1 Wolfsburg

    Manchester United defender Chris Smalling, speaking to BT Sport:"We started up against it after conceding a goal. 

    "But we created a lot of chances and deserved the win. We didn't give them too many chances. We created some ourselves which gave us a deserved victory. 

    "We knew they played with two wingers which gave us space, Anthony Martial's pace used that well."

    A lengthy stoppage here as Yann Sommer has his nose re-arranged. The Manchester City fans are in fine voice. What a comeback, and a deserved one too (if they hang on!).

    City were a defensive liability but they have solved that by just attacking again and again and again...

    Ronaldo equals scoring record

    He's done it. Cristiano Ronaldo scores his second goal of the night. And has now drawn level with Raul's all time goal scoring record for Real Madrid - just the 323 goals. He has a few years in him yet. How many more can he score.

    Five minutes to go of an epic first half. The home side will seriously wonder how on earth they are not ahead...

    Cristiano Ronaldo creeping closer to that record we talked about earlier - Real's goalscoring record. Only two more to go. He has just put Real Madrid 1-0 up against Malmo, it's his 500th career goal in 753 games. Pretty useful.

    Tom Miszkowski: All the talk about making the top 4 is futile if the English teams are going to play like this when they get there. 

    Ray Muamba: Never as a United fan have I wanted City not to concede. English Champions League places are at stake here! 

    C Li: The results in the latest Champions League round shows the current lack of quality in the Premier League.

  100. CLOSE!

    Manchester United 1-1 Wolfsburg

    What a chance for Manchester United to take the lead. Juan Mata drives forward, switches to the ball to the unmarked Memphis Depay on the left, but his left-footed shot is blocked by the legs of goalkeeper Diego Bengalio.

    So many chances tonight...

    Memphis Depay

    Monchengladbach 0-0 Man City

    Well, this is extraordinary. Manchester City in all sorts of grief in defence once more and Fernandinho goes in on Lars Stindl.

    That's more of a penalty than the one which was given earlier - but Stindl is booked for diving instead!

    Vincent Kompany does some job holding this lot together.

  102. GREAT SAVE!

    Monchengladbach 0-0 Man City

    This is the phrase of the week.

    Terrible defending from [INSERT ENGLISH SIDE HERE].

    Manchester City are carved open once again, Patrick Herrmann is clean through and Joe Hart is exposed once more. Great save! Hart having a brilliant game.

    The heat maps from the two sides - Manchester United left - show the hosts are doing most of the pressing. The pressure has now paid off...

  104. GREAT SAVE!

    Monchengladbach 0-0 Man City

    If it wasn't for Joe Hart, Manchester City would be trailing. Another brilliant save from the England man, who rushes out to deny Raffael - who was clean through after centre-back Nicolas Otamendi switched off - with an outstretched left arm. Schmeichelesque.

    "He lifts his hand up in the air and you have to give the penalty. And it's a calm spot-kick from Juan Mata, he's played well so far for United and confidently sends the goalkeeper the wrong way."

    Juan Mata (Pen 34 mins)

    Wayne Rooney does not take the penalty, Juan Mata steps up and places it easily into the bottom corner. A deserved equaliser.

    Interesting to see how the approach of both managers differs.

    Even with the scoreline going against his team, Louis van Gaal is nowhere to be seen.

    In fact, the only thing in the United technical area at present are half a dozen water bottles.

    By contrast, Wolfsburg manager Dieter Hecking is a constant presence right on the edge of proceedings, looking quite stylish in his white shirt and black jumper.

    Monchengladbach 0-0 Man City

    City may consider them fortunate not to be behind after Raffael's penalty miss. But, as the heatmap below shows, the visitors (on the right) are the team hogging possession in the other half.

    City are still probing down both flanks, whipping in nine crosses in the opening half an hour.

    Shohidur Rahman: And still people will defend Rooney. Shocking miss. 

    Koketso Khala: That shot from Rooney doesn't do any justice at all to the work done by Martial on the right. 

    Benhard Naweseb: Wolfsburg looking dangerous every time they go forward.

    Sergio Aguero shoots wide with his left foot before City spring Raheem Sterling away.

    Great game this, both sides attacking, but Sterling's cross in is poor and it doesn't reach Aguero in space.

    There's a goal coming for the men in red. Has to be.

    Juan Mata picks out Memphi Depay with a cute pass over the top and he leans in and heads straight at Diego Benaglio.

    "Wayne Rooney couldn't sort his feet out quick enough for that chance. He was leaning back and just can't hit the target with the side of his boot. He should be scoring from that position really."

    Man Utd 0-1 Wolfsburg

    Oh what a chance! You have to score that. Especially when you're England's record goalscorer.

    Bastian Schweinsteiger threads a beautiful pass to Juan Mata, he frees Antony Martial on the right, Martial skins his man - standard - and then pulls it back from the dead-ball line.

    It cuts out three bodies and falls at the feet of Wayne Rooney. Open goal, nine yards out, just tap it in. He fires over. Miles over.

    He's good this kid... Anthony Martial again beats his man with ease before laying it off to Bastian Schweinsteiger. The German moves the ball on to his left foot, leans back - and hammers it over.
