  1. Goodnight

    Right, it's time for me to lie down in a darkened room.

    But you've not got long to wait for more Champions League drama. Join us tomorrow to see what Arsenal and Chelsea serve up.

    Until then... thanks for your company. Night!

  2. 'The Ancelotti link'

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    BBC Radio 5 Live

    Times football correspondent Henry Winter: "There will be a few headlines linking Carlo Ancelotti’s name with Manchester United over the next few days I think. He’s given a series of interviews, in some of which he's talking kindly about United. 

    "And as I speak several of the United fans are having their photos taken with Sir Alex Ferguson here, with one of the Glazers skulking in the background. They have to look at their role in this too. They have invested but this is a squad that still needs more."  

  3. More injury woe for Sturridge

    Simon Stone

    BBC Sport

    Here's some news for supporters of Liverpool FC...

    "Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge will be out for several weeks after suffering a hamstring injury during Sunday's defeat at Newcastle.

    "He felt a problem after coming on as a second-half substitute at St James' Park and a scan showed a strain.

    "It is the latest in a long line of injury absences for the 26-year-old, who had just returned to action after knee and foot problems.

    "Sturridge has made six appearances so far this season, scoring four goals."

  4. 'Decisions went against us - LvG'

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    More from Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal in his post-match news conference: "The result is difficult to understand. I am happy we have scored and not happy we have two times in two minutes given the goal away. I have to analyse why that is happening. Normally we are very good in that aspect.

    "I have said in advance that this is a tight group and you see that in the results that we have made - and also our competitors.

    "I have to say that we were not so lucky in a match today, with the decision of the referee, and also in the first match too. When the group is tight that kind of decision can decide whether you go through or not."

  7. 'LvG will only make a hash of it'

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    John Hartson

    Former Arsenal striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "If the Glazers, Manchester United’s owners, want to carry on spending and continue to back Louis van Gaal then they must have money to burn, because Van Gaal will only make a hash of it. I really don’t think they have made progress since David Moyes. I would change it now - his recruitment has been poor.

    "I don’t speak to Ryan Giggs that regularly, but clearly he will not be happy with the way they are playing. I just wonder how much of an influence he is actually allowed to have – whether he just puts the cone out in training. I wonder if Van Gaal does say from time to time: ‘You know what? You give the team talk, because you are the next manager of Manchester United."

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    Louis van Gaal looks dejected

    Times football correspondent Henry Winter: "There have been a lot of Manchester United fans calling for Louis van Gaal to go, but he will continue to be backed by the club.

    "Van Gaal is the type of man who looks in a mirror and winks. He admires himself, he admires his CV, and yes he has won major titles across Europe - but the important thing is United still see him as having work to do.

    "They will go again, spend more in January and they'll spend more next summer as well."

  13. Post update

    We've just retraced our steps from earlier. In just three games, there were seven goals in eight minutes. Scenes.

  14. 'United's elimination self-inflicted'

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    Times football correspondent Henry Winter: “That was very bad. The previous times Manchester United went out of the Champions League at the group stage it was against teams like Barcelona in 1994, with players like Romario in their side. 

    "When this draw was made United were rightly confident of going through, but it’s Manchester City who have finished top of a far tougher group, and United go into the Europa League.

    "It’s self-inflicted. They should have beaten PSV in their previous game, and they defended poorly here."

  15. Cheeky!

  16. Reaction

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    And ex-Reds striker Michael Owen told BT Sport: "This is a worse squad now. The players Louis van Gaal has let go in the last 18 months would beat tonight's team: Rafael, Evans, Evra, Nani, Kagawa, RVP, Nani, Chicarito, Januzaj, Welbeck. Smalling and Carrick would get in."

  17. Reaction

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    Here's what ex-Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand had to say on BT Sport: "It is embarrassing. You don’t want to come out of the house. People are questioning you. If you strip it back this squad needs a hard look. There is no pace or power. People are looking around at each other rather than saying I will drag you through."

  18. Player reaction

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    Marouane Fellaini looks dejected

    Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini:"It is difficult for us. We are disappointed. We should win against PSV at home. We created a lot of chances. We should win. They scored three goals from set pieces. We should defend better.

    "We are not lucky tonight. In the last 10 minutes we played with 10 men (because Smalling was injured). It was more difficult. We have to forget this disappointment quickly. We have to recover quickly and focus on the next game."

    Louis van Gaal looks dejected

    Louis van Gaal is currently talking to BT Sport. He looks furious - like a bulldog chewing a wasp. I'd hate to sit next to him on the plane home. Best to pretend you're asleep in that situation.

    He said the match was "crazy" and the group was "tight". It's fair to say LvG was not happy with the decision to disallow a goal from Jesse Lingard at the end of the first half for offside.

  21. Get Involved

    Text us on 81111

    Dalraj: Now we see why LvG sets the team up in a very compact and defensive way; because when we open up and play expansively we become vulnerable. Manager is good enough but the players aren't, simple.

    Alistair: That was one of our better performances of the season & people need to recognise tonight was not the reason we went out. Great performance from the young full-backs particularly. Let's have a go like this in the Premier League more often and fans will be back on board!

  23. 'LvG has failed'

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    John Hartson

    Former Arsenal striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Louis van Gaal has had all that money to spend, and he has failed. They lost their very first game in the group, then failed to beat PSV at home, and only struggled to a win over Wolfsburg at home before tonight.

    "I think Bastian Schweinsteiger is a quarter of the player we are used to seeing –that man used to boss games, but now he doesn't have the legs. He can only play in holding midfield, well that's OK but my dad could play there, passing five yards to the left and five to the right.

    "Schweinsteiger was bossed tonight and was hauled off. United cannot afford to be a club that just gives players a pay day. They need legs, they need more power in midfield."

  24. Post update

    Wolfsburg 3-2 Man Utd

    Some key stats from tonight's game.

    • Manchester United have failed to qualify from the CL group stage on four occasions - 94/95, 05/06, 11/12 and this season.
    • Manchester Utd have won only one of their last 10 away games in the Champions League (5-0 v Leverkusen, November 2013), drawing four and losing five.
    • Naldo scored in the Champions League for the first time since 2006.

    "I've been to Europe with Cristiano Ronaldo in the team, I went to Barcelona [where United won the Champions League in 1999], I went all over when we were playing well. Van Gaal just does not have a team going. Not at all."

    Adam: Manchester United have got Sheffield United at home in the FA Cup and I really think it will be one of our lowest attendances. Nobody will go, because we are so dull and we are going absolutely nowhere. There is nothing to be excited about and I don't think we will improve - that's why Louis van Gaal has to go.

    "We gave him £250m to spend, and only our goalkeeper would interest a top side. Nick Powell wasn't even good enough for Leicester when he was there."

    "I think he is living on his reputation. Whatever he has done in the past at big clubs, he is not doing it at United.

    A much better start to the second period by Manchester City and Aleksandar Kolarov sees a drive from 20 yards deflected wide. One-way traffic since the re-start and City look like a side who have maybe had a firm telling off at the break.

    Kolarov is again advanced but his penalty appeal is waved away. Rightly so, great tackle by Nico Elvedi.

    "I don't think Manchester United have done a lot wrong tonight. David de Gea hasn't had much to do apart from picking the ball out of his net twice.

    "I know it's an old cliché but the next goal is absolutely massive. If United can get it they are right back in this. But if it goes Wolfsburg's way, then it could well be game over."

    Earlier we asked whether you thought Louis van Gaal is the right man for Manchester United and it is not pleasant reading for the Dutchman, with 72% of you saying he isn't.

    Can he turn this around, and win a few of you over, in the second half?

  99. KICK-OFF

    A big 45 minutes ahead for Manchester United.

    Of course, if CSKA manage to score it all changes...

    Joby, Braintree: Have English teams gone backwards or has every other club team in Europe got better? 8 years ago English clubs dominated UCL?

    Matt Salisbury: So all that money spent and Man Utd are 45mins away from a Champions League exit with a defence including two kids and a midfielder.

    Brian Gillott: Well that was a disappointing half for Manutd. Again LVG proves he is not the strategist in he is supposed to be?

    Wolfsburg 2-1 Man Utd

    Vieirinha celebrates

    The half-time chat on the BBC live text desk centres on that second Wolfsburg goal. Some claim it's the best goal they've seen this season. It's hard to argue.

    A thing of beauty.

    Wolfsburg 2-1 Man Utd

    Before we go any further... a few of you clocked my 'deliberate' mistake.

    For those who didn't, don't worry.

    Basically, it's Jesse Lingard playing for Manchester United tonight. Not his long, lost brother Anders.

    I'll get my coat.

  104. Who is Borthwick-Jackson?

    Cameron

    "Elegant on the ball but a strong tackler," is how the Manchester United website describes 18-year-old defender Cameron Borthwick-Jackson.

    Capable of playing across the back four and as a defensive midfielder, Borthwick-Johnson is highly rated by United's youth team coaches.

    The England youth international made his debut for Louis van Gaal's side against West Brom last month.

  105. Elsewhere in Europe

    Half-time at the Bernabeu and it's all Real Madrid - Cristiano Ronaldo adding the third against Malmo with his eighth Champions League goal of the season. No Gareth Bale tonight - he's been rested. 

    Madrid are already through as Group A winners, while Paris St-Germain are sure of second and drawing 0-0 at home to Shakhtar Donetsk. As it stands, the Ukrainians will be going into the Europa League.

    Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid are 1-0 up at Benfica in a match that decides who goes through as Group C winners, and who ends up in second.

    "Such a shame for Manchester United to have that goal ruled out just before the break. But why the assistant referee did not flag initially I don't know - there was about a 20-second delay. 

    "For me, if United could have just held onto their lead for a little bit longer, just enough time to get a feel for the game, they would have been OK. But the equaliser came quickly and Wolfsburg's second was a wonderful goal."

    The officials are escorted from the pitch by a protesting Jesse Lingard.

    I propose United get LvG and Fergie to do a WWE-style tag team at half-time and kick a few players into some kind of form.

  109. HALF-TIME - Wolfsburg 2-1 Man Utd

    Jesse Lingard speaks with the referee

    That was a very late call from the liner... but the right call. After, it appears, some words from the Wolfsburg defenders.

    Juan Mata was clearly in the goalkeeper's eyeline.

    "Juan Mata is in an offside position and is interfering as well. He was standing in front of the goalkeeper, so that has to be ruled out." 

  111. HALF-TIME

    Man City 1-2 Borussia Monchengladbach

    Raheem Sterling

    Not the best night for City so far.

    It was all going so well when David Silva fired them ahead, rounding off a great team move. 

    Make no mistake though, Borussia Monchengladbach have been the more complete side and merit their lead. City to be group winners? Looks unlikely.

  112. DISALLOWED GOAL

    Wolfsburg 2-1 Man Utd

    Bastian Schweinsteiger complains to the referee

    Manchester United think they're level when Cameron Borthwick-Jackson wins the ball out on the left, lays the ball off to Jesse Lingard and the youngster curls a shot beyond the keeper from just outside the area.

    However, it's ruled out... why? It appears to be because Juan Mata was offside.

    It was a very late flag. Ryan Giggs is furious as he ticks off the linesman on the touchline.

    Matteo Darmian sits injured

    Who'd be a Manchester United full-back?! You're almost guaranteed to end up crocked. Matteo Darmian is the latest to be cursed, falling to the turf in agony. His night is over as he limps down the touchline.

    Cameron Borthwick-Jackson is his replacement. "'Cameron who?!" I hear you cry. He's an England Under-19 international. Penny for Ashley Young's thoughts.

  116. GOAL - Man City 1-2 Borussia Monchengladbach

    Raffael (42 mins)

    Raffael celebrates

    A scrappy goal but one which could be crucial to Manchester City's future.

    They're desperate to finish top of their group to avoid one of the big boys in the last 16, but they've got a lot to do now.

    The Germans drive at City through the middle and a shot is deflected out wide. It's put back into the box, stabbed goalwards and Raffael applies the finishing touch from 12 yards out.

  117. Post update

    Man City 1-1 Borussia Monchengladbach

    Opta

    A look at the average positions of both sides in the opening period shows how Yaya Toure (42) is being used deep by Manchester City.

    In the battle of the deep midfielders though, he is playing second fiddle to Granit Xhaka (34).

    The 23-year-old in Borussia's midfield has touched the ball 51 times, 12 more than Toure.

    The more expansive setup by the away side is perhaps aiding their fluid passing. They have found options easier to come by.
