Liverpool might be the favourites to win Group D, but they face a tricky opening Champion League game at French side Marseille.

Chelsea captain John Terry has successfully appealed against the red card he picked up in Saturday’s win over Manchester City.

Terry was sent off for a foul on Manchester City striker Jo, but a Football Association hearing upheld Chelsea’s claim of wrongful dismissal.

He received a straight red from Mark Halsey, with the referee deeming the incident to be serious foul play.

Halsey issued a red card for serious foul play, which applies when a player “uses excessive force or brutality against an opponent when challenging for the ball when it is play”.

The England skipper had been set to miss three games including Sunday’s encounter with Manchester United.
