- Manchester United reflect on a tragic performance in Greece

- Chelsea prepare to face one of their heroes in the Champions League.

We start in Athens, and another nightmare for Red Devils boss David Moyes in the Champions League.

The Premier League champions have had some days to forget following Sir Alex Ferguson’s exit in the summer, but Tuesday’s 2-0 loss to Olympiakos might just be the worst of the lot.

Chelsea will be hoping to put some pride back into English football tonight when they face Galatasaray in Istanbul.

The Blues will come up against some familiar faces in the Champions League clash, with legendary striker Didier Drogba leading the line and ex-Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini in charge of the opposition.

On the domestic front, West Brom manager Pepe Mel is reportedly fighting for his job after just six games in charge at the Hawthorns.

The Spaniard has been unable to change the club’s fortunes after taking over from Steve Clarke, and the Baggies are just one point and one place above the relegation zone.

And finally in tennis, Andy Murray is through to the second round of the Mexican Open after beating Abierto Mexicano Telcel in three-sets.

The Scot lost his first three service games and was a break down in the second set, but battled back to win 3-6 6-1 6-2 in his first ever tournament on Latin American soil.

He faces Joao Sousa next.
