Europe – It was a mixed Matchday for the British teams in the Champions League with wins for Man United, Arsenal and Man City. Newcastle suffered a defeat to Borussia Dortmund but Celtic drew with Atletico Madrid.
Harry Maguire has often come under criticism from Manchester United supporters for inconsistent displays for the side. However, against Copenhagen this week, it was his header from Christian Eriksen‘s cross that secured them a 1-0 win. The three points were also rescued by Andre Onana who has also made some costly errors this season. The goalkeeper saved Jordan Larsson‘s penalty in the 97th minute.
This was United’s first win in the Champions League this season but they still remain third in A, having lost to Bayern Munich and Galatasaray in their opening two games. This result will boost Eric ten Hag‘s side, who face Manchester City in the Premier League this weekend.
Having lost to Lens last time out in the Champions League, Arsenal moved to the top of their Group with a 2-1 victory over Sevilla.
Gabriel Jesus played an excellent through ball to Gabriel Martinelli who rounded the goalkeeper before finishing into an empty net to give the Gunners the lead. Jesus then got on the scoresheet with a fantastic strike into the top corner.
Sevilla got one back through Nemanja Gudelj‘s header but it was too little too late. Mikel Arteta‘s side took the three points back to North London.
Defeat for Newcastle
After defeating Paris Saint-Germain 4-1 in their last Champions League game, Newcastle United could not continue this form as they suffered a 1-0 defeat to Borussia Dortmund at St James’ Park.
Felix Nmecha‘s strike from the edge of the box was enough to claim the victory for the German side. The result leaves Newcastle third in Group F with PSG and Dortmund ahead of them.
