All 32 UEFA Champions League contenders were in action this weekend. Find out how they got on in our review of the action…



Mesut Özil and Danny Welbeck each scored and provided an assist in Arsenal FC's 3-0 win at Aston Villa FC on Saturday, and manager Arsène Wenger is delighted with the pair's burgeoning partnership. "That's the positive of the day," Wenger said. "When they played close to each other, they combined well, with pace, and that was very interesting for us.

"[Özil] had a good performance. The performance is not necessarily linked with the position he played. It was the plan of the day to play him there but that can change game by game. The whole team played better as well and he's a guy who depends a little bit on the quality of our game. I was impressed by [Welbeck's] performance because he had good [ball] retention. He scored, he had an assist, he worked hard and he had a great game."
