As Tottenham tries to recapture its form of the first two-thirds of last season, it will probably be happy with the point earned at Arsenal, though it will also rue to the two points dropped after having a 2-0 lead.
The field of 32 is set, the groups are drawn and again we're left with multiple top-heavy quartets in the UEFA Champions League. A pair of evenly balanced groups and some tantalizing head-to-head matchups makes for an intriguing stage, though. Here's who we see making it through to the knockout rounds.
Juventus's eyes are on the Champions League prize, but even without focusing on the Serie A title, the club is the clear favorite to win it for a ninth straight season–despite the valiant challenges of some other contenders.
The story of this game will focus on VAR's intervention, thus denying a Gabriel Jesus winner and three points for Man City. But this was also about Tottenham and Mauricio Pochettino knowing that with or without the disallowed goal, leaving the Etihad with a point was a huge achievement.
The UEFA Super Cup isn't a very significant trophy, but the exercise in Istanbul yielded takeaways that could make the entertaining 120-minute showdown between Liverpool and Chelsea worthwhile for both sides.
If Chelsea's season-opening loss to Man United was any indication, then things could get worse before they get better when facing Liverpool in Wednesday's UEFA Super Cup–though N'Golo Kante's pending return to the lineup should help.
Given Chelsea's good work for the majority of the game - and the fact that Man United wasn't perfect - the scoreline was probably harsh for Frank Lampard's side. But the home team's counter attacking play did show defensive naivety, something that needs to be rectified sooner rather than later.
Liverpool handled Norwich City, 4-1, with relative ease in its English Premier League season-opener, but Alisson's injury is a major concern for the club going forward. The Reds' outlook rests on his test results.
