Did Ederson just blow Alisson's Champions League save out of the water?

I think it was a bit of a classic performance. The expectation changes, especially from the outside.

"We want to reach the maximum and hopefully do better than we did past year in the Champions League".

"Things can happen, everyone can have a bad season", he said.

"That's how it is, we're all grown-ups, we take it and after the game if you're not happy with it then you discuss it".

"Like always, who deserves it more is going to play - you know me".

Riise wrote on Twitter after Alisson's save: "WE HAVE THE BEST KEEPER IN THE WORLD!"

During that time he became the Madrid giants' all-time top scorer and helped the team to four Champions League titles, to add to the one he claimed with United.

Of course, Liverpool got their revenge with Mertens experiencing a quiet game and being substituted late on as the home side qualified for the knockout stages.


"Tottenham are having a fine start to the season, they had a great result the other night".

He admits that he likes the way Tottenham go about their business under Mauricio Pochettino ahead of the meeting between the sides and insists they are effective in their style.

"They're effective within that, the tempo of how they play". I am very pleased and I (think) very highly of him'.

Key to Burnley's chances will be trying to stop Harry Kane, with his England team-mate James Tarkowski leading the efforts.

"He did it nearly every match: someone is through on goal and you think they are going to score and then Ali is there to make a save", added Wijnaldum.

However, according to the numbers, Ronaldo might not have been Madrid's most important player - especially in the Champions League.

Spurs were due to move into their new ground at the start of the season but delays saw them remain at Wembley for a second year.

Midfielder Steven Defour (calf) and winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson (hamstring) are both very doubtful.
