Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City, Manchester United, Real Madrid and Barcelona news

Frank Lampard has heaped praise on Chelsea striker Fernando Torres. The Spaniard, who has been criticised since his £50 million move to Stamford Bridge in 2011, netted a brace as Chelsea beat Bundesliga outfit Schalke at the Veltins-Arena last night and Lampard has described his teammate as 'fantastic'.
Arsenal midfielder Mikel Arteta feels that Arsenal deserved more from Tuesday night's Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund. The Gunners lost 2-1 thanks to a late Robert Lewandowski volley but Spaniard Arteta thinks his team controlled the game.
A Russian television station committed an embarrassing blunder before Manchester City's Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow. Instead of using City's badge in a pre-match graphic, they accidentally replaced it with that of fierce rivals Manchester United.
Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti says there is no problem with Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale playing alongside each other. Bale, who moved to the Santiago Bernabeu for a world-record fee of £85 million during the summer, is looking to make a big impact in La Liga and Ancelotti believes he and Ronaldo can operate on either flank.
Barcelona star Daniel Alves has insisted he is pleased with a point from Tuesday's match against AC Milan. Lionel Messi and Robinho both scored as two sides played out a draw in Champions League Group H and Alves claims to be content with the result.
