Recovered from watching Wednesday night's unbelievable Champions League action? We've got 10 classic encounters involving English clubs to look back on.

Manchester City and Tottenham produced a Champions League Classic at the Etihad Stadium, with Spurs progressing, despite losing 4-3 on the night, on away goals after a late City goal was disallowed by VAR.

Here, we looks at 10 other classics involving English clubs in Europe.

September 1992: Leeds 4 Stuttgart 1

Leeds were beaten 3-0 in the first leg and after goals from Gary Speed, Eric Cantona, Lee Chapman and Gary McAllister gave them a 4-1 win at Elland Road it appeared they would go out of the competition on away goals. However, teams were only allowed three foreign players in those days but Stuttgart brought on a fourth - defender Jovo Simanic for his only appearance for the club. United were subsequently awarded a 3-0 win, levelling the scores. UEFA decided a replay would be needed on neutral territory. Leeds went on to win 2-1 with goals from Gordon Strachan and Carl Shutt at the Nou Camp.

April 1999: Juventus 2 Manchester United 3

After drawing the first leg of the semi-final 1-1 at Old Trafford, Filippo Inzaghi's brace had United 2-0 down in the second leg after just 11 minutes but Roy Keane, Dwight Yorke and Andy Cole sent Sir Alex Ferguson's men into their first final for 31 years.

May 1999: Manchester United 2 Bayern Munich 1

Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer both struck in stoppage-time to overturn Mario Basler's early opener and grab the European title for United in exhilarating fashion.

April 2003: Manchester United 4 Real Madrid 3

Trailing 3-1 from their quarter-final first leg, United pressed desperately to reduce the deficit and were only denied by a mesmerising individual display from Real Madrid hat-trick hero Ronaldo.

November 2003: Inter Milan 1 Arsenal 5

Finally, Arsene Wenger's men turned it on on the big stage with Thierry Henry's double leading the way to an extraordinarily one-sided victory in the San Siro, with three of the goals coming in the last five minutes.

December 2004: Liverpool 3 Olympiakos 1

Liverpool squeezed through to the knockout stages after Steven Gerrard's strike four minutes from the end. Rivaldo's 26th-minute free-kick left the Reds needing three goals to go through on head-to-head against the Greeks. Florent Sinama Pongolle levelled before Neil Mellor and Gerrard scored in the last 10 minutes to send the Merseysiders through by the slimmest of margins.

March 2005: Chelsea 4 Barcelona 2

Three goals up inside the first 19 minutes, Chelsea were then pegged back in a swinging end-to-end encounter before John Terry's priceless late header rounded off the most dramatic of victories, 5-4 on aggregate in the last 16.

May 2005: Liverpool 3 AC Milan 3

At 3-0 down in the final in Istanbul, Liverpool looked finished. They staged a magnificent comeback though, with goals from Steven Gerrard, Vladimir Smicer and Xabi Alonso taking the match to extra-time. Jerzy Dudek was the penalty shoot-out hero as Rafael Benitez led Liverpool to a stunning triumph.

April 2009: Chelsea 4 Liverpool 4

Liverpool, trailing 3-1 from the first leg at Anfield, cancelled out the deficit with first-half goals from Fabio Aurelio and a Xabi Alonso penalty. Didier Drogba, Alex and Frank Lampard had Chelsea 6-3 ahead on aggregate, only for Lucas and Dirk Kuyt to reply. However, Lampard's second of the night in the 89th minute took Chelsea through 7-5 on aggregate.

February 2017: Manchester City 5 Monaco 3

Manchester City had to come from behind twice to take a crucial two-goal lead to France for the second leg of this last-16 tie. Raheem Sterling put City ahead but Radamel Falcao's header and an effort from Kylian Mbappe sent Monaco into the break ahead. Willy Caballero saved Falcao's penalty before Sergio Aguero levelled. Falcao put Monaco back in front but goals from Aguero, John Stones and Leroy Sane rescued City. City eventually lost on away goals after going down 3-1 in France.
