The Match

MANCHESTER, England -- Three quick thoughts from Manchester City's 1-0 win over Steaua Bucharest in the second leg of their Champions League playoff at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday. The 6-0 aggregate win sees Pep Guardiola's side move on to the group stage.

The ESPN FC crew recap Liverpool's 5-0 win over Burton Albion in the EFL Cup.

BURTON UPON TRENT, England -- Three quick points from Liverpool's 5-0 win over Burton Albion in the second round of the EFL Cup:

Arsenal and Leicester shared the spoils in their first meeting of the season, as neither side gave the other many chances to capitalise on.
Last year's top two sides, Leicester City and Arsenal, are still without a win after two weeks following a scoreless draw.
Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri spoke following his side's 0-0 draw with Arsenal, and refused to blame the referee for any mistakes.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger alluded to the fact that his side are lacking the form that saw them claim second spot last season.
ESPN FC's Craig Burley says despite Arsenal's injury woes, it's a long season and they need to be given time.

LEICESTER, England -- Three points from Leicester and Arsenal's 0-0 draw in the Premier League:

1. Points shared

Perhaps, even at this stage of the season, the most important thing was not to lose. Leicester and Arsenal had different reasons to find the prospect of a second consecutive defeat distinctly unpalatable and that goes some way toward explaining the stalemate that unfolded here.

Nonetheless, there will be a regret or two, not least for Leicester, who saw two penalty appeals turned down...
