David Moyes believes Manchester United's 5-0 win over Bayer Leverkusen on Wednesday night was the Red Devils' best performance since he arrived at Old Trafford in the summer.

The Premier League champions booked their place in the Champions League knockout rounds with a stylish display against the Bundesliga outfit.

Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand is wanted by Liverpool, who will reportedly need to pay £8m to sign the 24-year-old when the transfer window opens in January.

Liverpool's first-choice left-back Jose Enrique is out until February - and the Reds' fear that their top-four hopes will be dented unless they bring in a suitable replacement.

Per Mertesacker has revealed that he is pleased with his recent performances - and hopes his good form will result in a contract extension with Arsenal.

The German centre-back, who turned 29 in September, is currently a first-choice defender for both club and country.

Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas insists that he is not feeling the pressure, following Sunday's 6-0 defeat at Manchester City.

The Portuguese coach, whose side take on Norwegian outfit Tromso this evening, believes he has matured since leaving Chelsea - and is subsequently capable of ignoring the intense speculation surrounding his job.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has played down suggestions that star striker Sergio Aguero suffered an injury during last night's 4-2 Champions League victory over Viktoria Plzen.

The Argentina international was substituted at half-time, but Pellegrini revealed that Aguero was told before kick-off that he would only be playing 45 minutes.

And finally, Paris Saint-Germain striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic insists he doesn't need the Ballon d'Or to convince himself that he's the world's best player.

The 32-year-old has enjoyed arguably the best year of his career - but Cristiano Ronaldo, Franck Ribery and Lionel Messi are expected to occupy the top three positions in the Ballon d'Or voting.
