Five of the best Champions League group wins by Premier League teams

Five of the best Champions League group wins by Premier League teams

The graph below shows the weekly wages and length of contract of the star players at the biggest clubs competing in the Champions League.... Dele Alli scored twice on his return from a three-game suspension.

And Porto delayed Besiktas' qualification by beating RB Leipzig 3-1 at home to climb into second place in Group G.

24 hours it had been Manchester United using English talent in Europe, with Scott McTominay (20) impressing on his full Champions League debut at home against Benfica.

Of course, Kane is no pauper - he signed a new contract with Spurs previous year worth a potential £120,000 a week.

These sides drew 1-1 at the Santiago Bernabeau two weeks ago, and now sit tied atop Group H with seven points after three games, so Wednesday's contest could go a long way to decide who will emerge the group victor.

Manchester United and Basel could qualify on matchday five when they go head-to-head in Switzerland.

The agency said 9 people were seriously injured in the attack, without giving further details. In October, the United Nations blacklisted the coalition for killing civilians and children.

Anything other than a loss will see United join Spurs and PSG in the next round.

But Napoli face an uphill task as they trail Shakhtar by six points and also have a goal difference of -2.

The group's other two teams, Borussia Dortmund and APOEL Nicosia, are mathematically still in contention to qualify but realistically have nearly no chance after their 1-1 draw.

Chelsea could have booked a place in the last 16 but capitulated in Rome last night and were swept aside by Roma in a 3-0 loss. The Spanish outfit sits third in Group E after three games - three points adrift of AS Roma and five back of Chelsea. But barring an Atletico Madrid or Qarabag revival, both sides should get through. They were joined on the pitch by worldwide colleagues Eric Dier (23) and Harry Winks (21), who were paired together in central midfield.

Aiming for its first appearance in the knockout phase, Besiktas now sits four points clear at the top from Porto. A draw at the San Siro in the final group game sent Leeds through to a second section of four, where they finished above Anderlecht and Lazio to progress again.

Elsewhere, the Sevilla duo of Ever Banega and Clement Lenglet earned their place in the side by both scoring against Spartak Moscow to help them keep pace with Liverpool at the top of Group E.
