Morning football fans

Manchester City survived a major scare to beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 at the Etihad.

Erling Haaland scored a dramatic late winner against his former side to make it two wins out of two in the Champions League so far.

Meanwhile Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw against Red Bull Salzburg in Graham Potter’s first match in charge.

The Blues are BOTTOM of Group E.

Juventus suffered a shock 2-1 defeat at home against Benfica to make it back-to-back defeats.

They are now six points behind PSG and Benfica in Group H.

And there was woe for Rangers at Ibrox after they lost 3-0 to Napoli in their rearranged clash.

In other news, Arsenal’s clash with Manchester City scheduled for October 19 has been postponed to create a date for the Gunners to play their Europa League tie against PSV Eindhoven.

The European match was initially scheduled for Thursday night but was postponed due to a lack of police resources ahead of the Queen’s state funeral next Monday.

Uefa rules dictated that the Gunners had to find a new date to fulfil the fixture before the World Cup or forfeit the game.

Arsenal chiefs remained confident that it would not come to that, and have managed to squeeze the match in on October 20 by having their previously scheduled fixture against City called off.

And finally, Alan Pardew has been named as the new manager of Greek side Aris Thessaloniki.

The 61-year-old has signed a one-year deal with the option of a further year.

Pardew is set to take charge of his first game on Sunday against champions Olympiacos, who boast former Real Madrid star Marcelo in their ranks – while James Rodriguez is on the verge of joining.
