Max Meyer secured Schalke's progression to the last 16 of the Champions League as his goal sealed a 1-0 win at Maribor in Group G on Wednesday night.

Nemanja Matic has defended Chelsea's performance in the 2-0 win at Anfield that heralded the beginning of the end of Liverpool's title hopes.

Jose Mourinho's team were criticised for negative tactics but, as he prepared to return to Anfield with the Londoners on Saturday,...
