Champions League 2014: Scores from Matchday 5

Liverpool struggled, while Arsenal and Manchester City got the job done.

On the 5th matchday of the UEFA Champions League group stage, all of the spotlight is on England, and not for good reasons.

Chelsea may be cruising at the top of their group, but this competition hasn't been kind to the other Premier League teams. Arsenal need to beat Borussia Dortmund to keep their chances of winning Group D alive, Liverpool need a result away to Ludogorets to feel good about their chances of advancing, and nothing but a win will do for Manchester City as they take on Bayern Munich. It's looking increasingly likely that the Citizens might finish last in Group E and get knocked out of Europe altogether.

The Italian champions are in a bit of a sticky situation as well. Juventus sit third in their group and would like to get all three points against Malmo so they don't face Atlético Madrid on the final matchday needing points to advance. They're already losing their tiebreaker to Olympiacos, so they don't have much margin for error.
