Chelsea Cruise, Arsenal Lose, Milan & Barca Draw, Today's Action, Gooch to QPR

Simply disgusted with his team's effort against Chelsea...
And a lovely Wednesday to you! Diving right into yesterday's Champions League action, we'll begin in Gelsenkirchen, where a professional display from The Special One's side provided a 3-0 away win over Schalke and the excuse for us to use that photo. Ahem. Poor lad. Anyway, Torres scored and Chelsea now sit atop their group.

Back in London, it was 1-1 and Arsenal were pressing for a win but Dortmund and Lewandowski had other ideas and nicked the three points with a late goal.

Jonathan Wilson says the loss revealed Arsenal's weaknesses

Barney Ronay is more optimistic and says Olivier Giroud took center stage.

Phil McNulty wonders how Arsenal can learn from the defeat.

This is interesting.

Back at the San Siro, it was Turn Back the Clock Day as Ricardo Izecson dos Santos Leite (aka Kaká) and Robson de Souza (aka Robinho) combined for Milan's goal. Barcelona's came via (who else?) a fine finish from one Lionel Messi. 1-1 was your final score.

Here's a wrap of all of Tuesday's Champions League action.

Today we've got more matches (yay!) including Real Madrid vs. Juventus, Manchester United vs. Real Sociedad, Bayern Munich vs. Viktoria Plzen, and CSKA Moscow vs. Manchester City (they're painting the pitch green!).

Sid Lowe is on hand to let us know that it might be the ideal time for a nervy United to face a sinking Sociedad. And hey, just where has it gone wrong for Manchester United and David Moyes?

Gooch is back! He signed with QPR. Have fun with 'Arry, friend.

We'll conclude this Hump Day with more on Sir Alex. Jon Snow interviewed him. Check it.
