Champions league results

It wasn't a great day for British clubs on match day three of the Champions league. Arsenal lost at home to Schalke 2-0. It was Arsene Wenger's first defeat to a German club at home. Klaas-Jan Huntelaar scored Schalke's first and then Ibrahim Afellay added to that. It now means that Wenger's men have not kept a clean sheet since September.

It was a miserable day for Manchester City as they lost to Ajax 3-1 in Holland. Samir Nasri opened the scoring for Man City before Siem De Jong equalised on the half way mark, Ajax then added another 11 minutes later via Niklas Moisander and the damage was done when Christian Eriksen fired home.

The results mean that Arsenal slip to second and Man City are rock bottom. Here are the other results: Zenit St Petersburg 1-0 Anderlecht, Borussia Dortmund 2-1 Real Madrid, Dinamo Zagreb 0-2 PSG,  FC Porto 3-2 Dynamo Kiev, Montpellier 1-2 Olympiakos, Malaga 1-0 AC Milan.
