Rashford of Manchester United celebrates after scoring his sides second goal with Shaw of Manchester United during the UEFA Champions League.

Striker Sergio Aguero scored a consolation for the Citizens in stoppage-time.

Basel's match-winner against Manchester United made another huge contribution to the 2-0 victory at Benfica that secured their round-of-16 spot.

"Antonio Conte helps you to grow because you can never get too comfortable or find a comfort zone", he told the Evening Standard.

Diego Simeone insisted Atletico Madrid's Champions League campaign was not a failure after they were eliminated on Tuesday. The Catalonians equalled the record for the least goals conceded in a group stage - just the single goal in six matches - not bad in a group featuring Juventus. There is a 18.8% chance that Jurgen Klopp's side will be drawn to face the competition holders and the same can be said for the chances of them facing last season's runners-up. From that point onwards it is a free draw so group-stage rematches and any all-Premier League clashes could be back on the agenda from that point onwards.

Despite a defeat to Bayern Munich in their final fixture from Group B - and there's no shame in losing at the Allianz Arena - PSG still deserve massive kudos for how they handled the group.

Juan Mata has opened up about Zlatan Ibrahimovic's first day of the club.

Finished third in the group, CSKA, Celtic, Atletico Madrid and sporting CP will play in the 1/16 finals of the Europa League.

Swansea's Paul Clement is the latest Premier League manager under huge scrutiny, with his team having dropped to last place ahead of a home match against fourth-to-last West Bromwich Albion. Liverpool won a play-off against Hoffenheim to make it five English clubs in the group stage. The second was Juventus. We must be ready. Along with Coutinho, Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah, the Senegalese forward was unstoppable.

Morata, 25, who has settled well at Stamford Bridge, says he has no regrets about leaving Real Madrid in the summer transfer window and credits Conte with helping him improve as a player. Fortunately for the pacesetters, their title rivals have largely failed to take advantage.

The records keep on falling at Ronaldo's feet.

But this is a City side that seems best placed to land England's first European Cup in six years.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool's bid to progress on Wednesday night and with Manchester City, United and Tottenham already confirmed group winners, Conte said, "With five teams to go through to the next round means the level of this league is very high".
