Jose Mourinho returns to former club Chelsea with Manchester United on Sunday having struggled to break down Liverpool in the 0-0 draw at Anfield, but seeing his side score four against Feyenoord.

Arsenal's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain says the key to his side's 6-0 win was not taking their opponents lightly.
Arsenal produced a dominant display, including a hat trick by Mesut Ozil, as they beat Ludogorets 6-0 at the Emirates.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain showed with his goal in the 6-0 Champions League win over Ludogorets on Wednesday that he can still be an impact player for Arsenal this season.

But the question is whether it was enough to make a claim for a more regular starting role in this team.
