Champions League team of the week: Kylian Mbappe and Vinicius Junior lead the all-stars

A mixed line-up from another dramatic week of action

Some breathtaking drama in the Champions League this midweek, and another stunning fightback from Manchester United.

Liverpool won a thriller with a late winner at Atletico Madrid, Mohamed Salah again coming to their rescue.

Last year's beaten finalists Manchester City strolled to a 5-1 win at Brugge, while 2021 winners Chelsea thrashed Malmo 4-0 - though that win could come at a cost with striker Romelu Lukaku limping off.

Barcelona finally recorded their first victory in the group stage when they beat Dynamo Kiev 1-0, with Gerard Pique the unlikely scorer.

And it was another thriller at Old Trafford as Manchester United came from two goals down against Atalanta, inevitably Cristiano Ronaldo netting the decisive goal in their 3-2 triumph.
