Champions League video highlights: Manchester United win again and Chelsea given a royal schooling by Roma

Contrasting nights for the Premier League giants in Europe.

Premier League clubs were in action in the Champions League last night as Manchester United ran out 2-0 winners over Benfica, while Chelsea were humbled 3-0 by Roma.

The Red Devils are now surely going to make it into the knockout stages as they require just one point from their remaining two group games, but the Blues face a less straightforward task.

Antonio Conte’s men remain four points ahead of Atletico Madrid, but will be worried about the nature of their performance at the Stadio Olimpico.

United, meanwhile, continue to silence their critics by grinding out results and keeping clean sheets at home, even if it isn’t always pretty.

Jose Mourinho was on the defensive again after the match as he refused to analyse his team’s performance against Benfica.

‘I’m paid to work and do my best, which I do every day, and the specialists are paid to comment on my work so let them,’ he was quoted in the Sun.
