I didn’t see this one because my daughter spilt water over my laptop and BT won’t let me open more than one window on one machine, but it exists nevertheless.

“‘He’s quick, strong and brave’” says Andrew Champney, quoting me back to myself. “Ae you trying to say he’s got Dalot?”

Lovely play from Reguilon, who screeches infield and past a pair of challenges before finding Lamela, who looks not to have noticed Bale, unmarked outside him, before sweeping him the pass. Bale should cross with his right foot but obviously uses the outside of his left, and in the middle, Vinicius is probably offside, but it doesn’t matter because Andrade can’t help himself, sliding the ball home in a panic. If Spurs can be bothered, this will get messy.

Diogo Dalot is playing for Milan, and I’m interested to see how he does. He’s got some talent – he’s quick, strong and brave – and I’m not really sure what happened to him at United.

Nice play down the right between Doherty and Bale, the latter finding the former with a fine return ball, but his cross is poor. Though, in his defence, Vinicius didn’t really moveferim.

Celtic’s Frimpong gets himself into a decent crossing position, then makes a mess of things.

I was extremely sceptical when he got the Spurs job, but now I’m wondering whether it’s good for him and he’s good for it. First of all, Harry Kane can cover a multitude of sins, but more than that, most of his success has come with teams not used to winning. Maybe he needs that inferiority complex, and if he does, he couldn’t hope for better than what he’s git.

Back to Mourinho, I should make clear that I was joking. His style isn’t out of date – his Chelsea team would be brilliant in any area – his problem has been his refusal to adapt to circumstance, trying to impose it on players suited to something different, technically, mentally and physically.

Vinicius makes amends, running the channel to make an angle for Davies who lofts a fine pass over the top. He sweeps it into stride with an excellent first touch, then squares with ideal eight for Moura, who has a cup of tea then slides home.

One way British clubs beat better continental ones is by flying at them from the off, but the absence of a crowd hinders that tactic. Still Celtic did their best, then conceded a goal from Milan’s first attack. It’ll be a struggle from here.

That’s what you get for your good start. Castillejo is allowed inside to cross on his left foot and Welsh marks space in the box, so Krunic leaps and plants a header beyond Barkas.

Zorya have come to have a go at Leicester – should be a decent game this.

“How do you think the Spurs team will line up with only on recognised centre-back?” asks Brian Richardson. “Also I’m looking forward to seeing Vicinius more than Bale.”

Doherty hits the line and dinks a cross into the middle for Vinicius, alone in the six-yard box. He leaps like he knows what he’s doing, but heads down and wide. That was a very good chance that I’d have backed Roberto Soldado and Vincent Janssen to gobble up.

Celtic have started well against in-form Milan, dominating possession. They’ve yet to create chance, but given how they’ve been playing, I’d guess they need to do this early.

Tottenham Hotspur: Hart, Doherty, Sanchez, Davies, Reguilon, Hojbjerg, Winks, Lamela, Bale, Moura, Vinicius. Subs: Lloris, Austin, Aurier, Alderweireld, Sissoko, Ndombele, Lo Celso, Alli, Bergwijn, Son, Kane.

LASK: Schlager, Wiesinger, Trauner, Andrade, Ranftl, Holland, Michorl, Renner, Gruber, Raguz, Balic. Subs: Lawal, Gebauer, Filipovic, Eggestein, Ramsebner, Potzmann, Madsen, Cheberko, Goiginger, Grgic.

Leicester City: Schmeichel, Castagne, Fofana, Evans, Fuchs, Mendy, Tielemans, Praet, Barnes, Maddison, Iheanacho. Subs: Ward, Jakupovic, Justin, Morgan, Albrighton, Perez, Under, Choudhury.

Zorya: Shevchenko, Khomchenovskiy, Cvek, Vernydub, Favorov, Kochergin, Ivanisenia, Nazaryna, Kabayev, Yurchenko, Lunov. Subs: Vasilj, Matsapura, Rufati, Perovic, Gladkiy, Abu Hanna, Gryn, Ciganiks.

“Doherty rampaging down the right-hand side” says Peter Drury, a strange line to hear given Spurs’ history with the name. Here’s the Ginger Pele in face-scoring FA Cup semi-final action.

They’re ready to go at Paradise; goodness me this would be a night. But still, it should be phat so let’s be having youse.

My days, what a group of away trips this is for Arsenal fans not to enjoy.

Evening all, Daniel Harris taking over. Feel free to email me at [email protected], or tweet @DanielHarris.

Arsenal stumbled to victory but Partey was fantastic in his first start for the Gunners and Aubameyang and Bellerín changed the game after they came on.

84 min: Another couple of changes for Arsenal. Lacazette is withdrawn in place of Willock and Saka comes off to be replaced by Tierney.

83 min: The minutes are ticking down. It has been a bumpy ride for Arsenal in Vienna but they look set to get the job done. Elsewhere, Rangers still lead in Liege and Dundalk trail Molde. Goals aplenty in the Europa League.

77 min: Kitagawa replaces Kara. Elsewhere, Roma lead Young Boys in Switzerland and Bellarabi has added a fourth for Leverkusen against Nice. Moments before Arsenal’s second, Leno almost gifted Rapid a route back in after dropping another clanger when he hit a clearance against David Luiz. Fortunately for Leno, that time Fountas was unable to capitalise but this has been a game to forget for the usually dependable keeper.

75 min: What was Arteta worried about? Leno has endured a difficult evening but Arsenal have been transformed since the arrival of the cavalry.

Two substitutes combine as Arsenal come from behind to take the lead! Elneny threads a pass through for the overlapping Héctor Bellerín, who slides the ball across the six-yard box for Aubameyang to tap in. He was never going to miss.

A mad couple of minutes, but Arsenal level in Austria. Nicolas Pepe, who had drawn a foul from Ritzmaier after the midfielder crudely blocked the winger, whips in a free-kick and David Luiz jumps highest to plant a header beyond Strebinger.

The Norwegian side level through Etzaz Hussain. He arrows a fine cross from Marcus Pedersen into the corner of goal. Meanwhile, a fifth goal in Poznan, with Benfica re-taking the lead through Darwin Gabriel Nuñez.

60 min: A double change for Arsenal and Arteta, then: Héctor Bellerín is on in place of Cédric Soares.

59 min: Leno almost gets caught out again after Vienna hunt down the backpass! Another hairy moment for the Arsenal goalkeeper, who is consoled by Gabriel. Can Aubameyang stir Arsenal? He is on in place of Nketiah, who had been booked.

57 min: A penny for the thoughts of Özil, who has presumably just put the kettle on at home in north London. Arteta cuts a deeply frustrated figure and is readying Aubameyang.

It had been coming … Taxiarchis Fountas seizes on a dreadful cock-up by Bernd Leno. The Arsenal goalkeeper tries to be too cute playing out the back after David Luiz passed the ball back to him. Leno, on the edge of his own six-yard box, ends up undercooking a pass, which deflects off Kara and straight to Fountas, who drills home emphatically. Big error but cool finish.

49 min: Now Bukayo Saka is fortunate after the ball strikes his forearm in the box. The Arsenal winger looked on a little sheepishly and the Rapid forward looked bemused. Saka appeared to move his arm towards the ball. Arsenal are yet to get going in this second half.
