Bayern steamroller sorry Gunners

Arsene Wenger's time at Arsenal has rarely been as fraught as it is currently. Out of the FA Cup to Blackburn, the Capital One Cup to Bradford, and a whopping 21 points shy of Premier League leaders Manchester United, the Gunners would have wanted to put up a strong display in the Champions Leaguge against Bayern Munich.

But early goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller simply flattened Arsenal, as Jupp Heynckes' men rolled straight through the Gunners with the only blot on their copybook a second-half goal from Lukas Podolski in the 3-1 win at the Emirates Stadium.

It remains to be seen whether Wenger will be able to straighten out his side in time for the return leg...

Hasta la vista, baby

Thomas Vermaelen's stoppage-time winner helped Arsenal move to within a single point of local rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League.
Vermaelen, affectionately known as 'The Verminator', displayed the recent determination that has flourished among the Gunners and Arsene Wenger was full of praise as his side came from behind to win in their fourth consecutive Premier League game. They now also have a gap of three points over fifth-placed Chelsea and look likely to grab a spot in next season's Champions League, despite last week's elimination from the competition by AC Milan.
