That put Matip on a total of 10 points, with his headed goal bringing in nine points while a single tackle bumped him up into double digits.

Man City had to work hard to land success against Dortmund and after falling behind, they found the equaliser through an unlikely source.

John Stones was an injury concern ahead of their game, but those who put their faith in him were handsomely rewarded with 10 points in total.

Playing as a make-shift full-back, the former England international scored a screamer from 20 yards with 10 minutes left on the clock.

MIDFIELDERS

On the opposing team, Jude Bellingham proved to be a standout for Dortmund at the Etihad.

The former Birmingham City midfielder opened the scoring for the Black And Yellows, on his way to claiming nine points on the night.

With Dortmund facing Sevilla in the next few fixtures, Bellingham could pick up a steady stream of points for his users.

The only card to feature in both UCL teams to date, Mykhailo Mudryk is proving to be the rising star in this year’s tournament.

The Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder found the net for the second gameweek in a row, scoring the equaliser against Celtic.
