  3. Most memorable saves?

    Ed: Surely in terms of what happened next, Manuel Almunia's double penalty save that launched the counter against Leicester in the Championship play-offs deserves a mention.

  4. Pogba set to start for United

    Valencia v Man Utd (20:00 GMT)

    Paul Pogba is set to start for Manchester United, though, after being on the bench in the past two matches.

    The French midfielder has been urged by United boss Jose Mourinho to make "a good impact" in their last Champions League group game.

    Carl: Barca reserves that still cost around £300m and Messi played for 30 minutes. Spurs were away. Liverpool scraped a 1-0 victory at home. I think we can all see who got the better result!

    Mangoe: Vermaelen, Rakitic, Dembele, Coutinho, Busquets, Suarez, Messi..... A strong reserve team Barcelona have. Outplaying any Barcelona team at the Nou Camp is an accomplishment. Liverpool and Spurs both did well In tough groups, can't we just be happy for the English clubs?

    Graeme: Why are fans moaning about each other's nature of European progress? 4 English teams through... be proud.

    We agree, Graeme. Huge congratulations to the four teams through to the last 16!

  6. Silva out for "a few weeks"

    Man City v Hoffenheim (20:00 GMT)

    Claudio Bravo, Danilo, Benjamin Mendy, Kevin de Bruyne and Sergio Aguero were already on the sidelines for City.

    Pep Guardiola then said yesterday that midfielder David Silva will be out for "a few weeks" due to the hamstring injury that forced him off at Chelsea.

  7. Most memorable saves

    Ged Lynam: Packie Bonner penalty save against the Romanians in Italia '90 for the Republic of Ireland.

    Barry: Most aggravating must be the 'clown' Tomaszewski in 1973.

    Brian: Most memorable save was Bert Trautmann's save at the feet of a Birmingham forward in the 1956 FA Cup final which resulted in a broken neck. Bert played on despite it and Man City won. As a very young boy, the memory has stayed with me.

  8. Sterling player of the month

    Man City v Hoffenheim (20:00 GMT)

    Timely boost for Raheem Sterling after the alleged racial abuse he received at Chelsea at the weekend.

    In all competitions the forward scored four goals in four games for Manchester City in November, as well as helping England reach the Uefa Nations League semi-finals.

    He could probably do with a rest tonight but Pep Guardiola may not have that luxury as he claims he only has 15 fit players to choose from.

    Bee Shah: It was a decent save by Alisson, nothing more than should be expected from a top class keeper.

    John Percival: Alisson save definitely world class - off his line quick and made himself huge. That said, it's nothing compared to Tom Heaton's save from Ibrahimovic at Old Trafford a couple of years ago!

    Anon: Sorry but that was a Napoli miss more than an Alisson save. See that kind of save every weekend in Sunday league up and down the country. Very poor finishing. Nothing more.

  10. Chairman to personally pay Bolton wages

    Elsewhere in the Football League, Bolton Wanderers chairman and majority stakeholder Ken Anderson has agreed to personally fund outstanding wages owed by the Championship club.

  11. 'Organised chaos'

    That's how manager Steve Evans described last night's FA Cup replay at Bradford, which was a 4-4 draw before his Peterborough side won on penalties.

    You can also relive Tuesday's second-round replays as they happened right here.

    Now then.

    We've just received a text which - perhaps unsurprisingly - had no name included.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    Marc: Ray Clemence. 1973 UEFA Cup Final 1st leg v. Borussia M. Saved a penalty at the Kop End. With no gloves. I was there. That is all.

    Geoff Naylor: The best save I've ever seen was Gordon Banks from Pele in the '70 World Cup. The ball seemed to be already in the net but somehow he pushed it over.

    Dan: Casillas' save with his legs when Arjen Robben was through. 2010 World Cup Final.

    Ryan: As a Chelsea fan who is still overjoyed about 'that' win against Barcelona in 2012, I have to say it was impressive of Tottenham to play with that level of confidence at the Nou Camp, even if Barca were already through; not to mention the ability to stop Messi! I'm sensing a very tasty UCL tournament!

    M. Ali: How many games did Liverpool lose in the group? Just saying.

    Anon: Yeah, remarkable result for Spurs last night and great achievement qualifying after such a poor start. Keep it in perspective eh, and careful what you wish for as Barca will be a very different proposition in the knockout stages!

  15. 'That wasn't good for my recovery!' - Hoddle

    Barcelona 1-1 Tottenham

    Earlier we asked how the nerves were last night. Spare a thought for Glenn Hoddle, who is recovering from a cardiac arrest.

    This morning the Tottenham legend joked that the dramatic way Spurs made it into the last 16 did not help!

  16. Who could Liverpool and Spurs play?

    That means Liverpool's last 16-opponents will be anyone from Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Porto, Real Madrid, Juventus and Bayern Munich or Ajax.

    For Tottenham it's Borussia Dortmund, PSG, Porto, Real Madrid, Juve and Bayern or Ajax.

  17. Today's papers

    And here's the last of today's back pages, after both Liverpool and Tottenham went through as runners-up in their Champions League group.

  18. Most memorable saves?

    Dave Amitri: Jim Montgomery for Sunderland vs Leeds FA Cup final 1973.

    Martin Nacey: Jimmy Montgomery 1973 cup final..unbelievable.

    Mick: I'm not a Sunderland supporter, but Montgomery's double save from Cherry and Lorimer in the 1973 FA Cup final must deserve a mention!

  19. When is the draw?

    And a reminder that the draw for the last 16 of the Champions League will take place next Monday, 17 December.

    The first legs will be played on 12, 13, 19 and 20 February, with the second legs on 5, 6, 12 and 13 March.

    Tottenham will find out their FA Cup third-round opponents on the same day as Southport and Tranmere play their replay that evening, with a home tie against Spurs up for grabs.

  20. Who will they play?

    If Manchester City get at least a draw at home to Hoffenheim then they'll go through as group winners and face one of the runners-up - but not the runners-up from their own group or fellow English sides Tottenham, Liverpool and United (if they stay second).

    That leaves Atletico Madrid, Schalke, Roma and Bayern Munich or Ajax.

    United need Young Boys to shock Juventus to have any chance of winning their group.

    If they stay second then their last-16 opponents could be anyone from Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona, Paris St-Germain, Porto, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich or Ajax.
