Joe Hart put some iffy form behind him and claims his place despite defeat to Bayern Munich. With the Champions League Group Stage Matchday One now in the bag, we take a look at the players who lit up Europe on Tuesday and Wednesday night: Goalkeeper: When a goalkeeper comes up against Bayern Munich, he usually knows he's in for a busy old time, and so it came to pass for Joe Hart. The Manchester City keeper has shown the best and the worst of his abilities this season, from a terrific performance for England against Switzerland to a couple of iffy ones for his club, but he was tremendous...

Before Arsenal's defeat at Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night, Jurgen Klopp had spoken of his admiration for Arsene Wenger but stressed that they are very different characters.

Player Ratings: Roma return to the Champions League with huge win

AS Roma matched their biggest Champions League win with a 5-1 thumping of CSKA Moscow to open their Champions League account. Prior to Wednesday night's game vs. CSKA Moscow, Roma's return to the Champions League already was a momentous event. For the club to return to the top flight European competition after years of underachievement was perhaps the most pivotal moment of Rudi Garcia's first season.
