Football news LIVE: Champions League reaction as Chelsea beat Zenit, Wilshere to Arsenal LATEST, Pele surgery UPDATES


Manchester United got their Champions League campaign off to a nightmare start last night.

The Red Devils travelled to Switzerland to face minnows Young Boys.

And it appeared things were about to go swimmingly, when Cristiano Ronaldo gave them a 13th minute lead.

But things turned sour ten minutes before half-time, when Aaron Wan-Bissaka was red carded for a late challenge.

Moumi Ngamaleu grabbed a deserved equaliser for Young Boys in the 66th minute.

And Jesse Lingard’s horror backpass gifted Jordan Siebatcheu a last-gasp winner.

Chelsea, meanwhile, got their title defence off to a decent, if understated start.

The Blues took on a stubborn Zenit St Petersburg side at Stamford Bridge.

The Russians weren’t without their opportunities.

But Romelu Lukaku’s fourth goal of the season was enough to fire Thomas Tuchel’s side to victory.

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich humbled Barcelona in their own backyard, beating Ronald Koeman’s side 3-0 – with Robert Lewandowski bagging a brace.
