Liverpool dumped out of Champions League by ruthless Basel

'Soft' Liverpool fall to Basel defeat

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard labelled his side 'soft' after the Reds fell to a 1-0 loss to Basel in Switzerland.

Paulo Sousa's side are building something of a reputation for defeating English sides, having beaten Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham in the last few years.

This win leaves Brendan Rodgers' side struggling to qualify with two games against Real Madrid around the corner and plenty of work still to be done.
In another game Arsenal's Danny Welbeck scored a hat-trick on Galatasaray to secure a win to his team.

The Champions League returns

Just four months after Cristiano Ronaldo & co. were holding aloft the giant trophy in Benfica's Stadium of Light, the Champions League is back as the group stages kick-off on Tuesday night.

Holders Real Madrid are in action against Basel and will be eager to kick-start their season, having so far struggled domestically, while Italian champions Juventus will be looking for a longer-lasting European adventure this time around - and have been handed an easier draw, beginning against Malmo.

The Premier League is well represented too, with Arsenal travelling to Dortmund looking to repeat the victory they recorded last term, while Liverpool's absence from Europe's premier club competition is finally over as they begin against Ludogorets.

As ever, you can follow all the action as it unfolds LIVE with Goal.

Mourinho left to mend his broken eggs

After Jose Mourinho claimed in the build-up to Chelsea's Champions League opener against Basel that his players were "young, beautiful eggs", he will no doubt have been crestfallen to see them broken so easily at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues looked out of sorts against the Swiss side, who put them to the sword with two second-half goals to really open up Group E even after one match day.
