There’s just two of the lads on board this week but plenty to get through starting with the Champions League, and we now know all of the teams that will make up the last 16. Arsenal had a bit of a scare but still progressed as Napoli became the first team to miss out on 12 points.

Manchester City’s big win in Munich was slightly overshadowed by Manuel Pellegrini’s goal difference gaff, while neighbours United and Jose Mourinho’s Chelsea topped their group.

The City v Arsenal game is the weekend’s biggest Premier League fixture but there are some interesting fixtures involving teams lower down the table as the likes of West Brom, Sunderland and Hull City look to claim a crucial three points ahead of a busy period.

There’s a re-cap of MLS Cup which was won in dramatic fashion by Sporting Kansas City, before the focus switches to the World Cup draw and discussion around the eight groups.
