Berbatov and Messi are the bookmakers favourites to be the top scorer in the Champions League this season, but what do you think?

UEFA is to investigate a missile-throwing incident involving Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard and Marseille fans at Anfield on Wednesday night.

Gerrard was hit by an object – believed to be a cigarette lighter – as he prepared to take a corner in the first half of their 1-0 Champions League win.

Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez confirmed his captain was unhurt and praised him for not retaliating.

“He is a good professional. Steven did well not to react,” said Benitez.

A Liverpool spokesman added: “Uefa’s delegate is aware of what happened and it is now in his hands.”

Uefa’s spokesman at the game added: “The incident will be included in both the match delegate’s report and the referee’s report.”
