Arsene Wenger catches Wojciech Szczesny smoking in the showers


Arsenal and Arsene Wenger haunted by "ghosts" of defensive errors past

Arsenal ripped apart in Dortmund

Jurgen Klopp finally recorded a victory over Arsene Wenger on home soil as he watched his side dismantle Arsenal 2-0 in their Champions League group stage encounter on Tuesday night.

The scoreline rather flattered the Gunners - BVB skipper Sebastian Kehl claimed afterwards that they could have scored four goals - with the Bundesliga outfit racking up an astonishing 23 shots on goal, the most any side managed as Europe's premier club competition returned.

Arsenal were on the backfoot from the first whistle to the last, with calamitous defending gifting a largely wasteful Dortmund plenty of opportunities.

The pace and directness of Ciro Immobile and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang caused the north Londoners serious problems, while Danny Welbeck's wayward finishing, Mesut Ozil's disappearing act and Lukas Podolski's lost shin pads all contributed to an awful night for Arsene Wenger.

Wenger rolls out the red carpet for Van Persie's grand return

All eyes will be on the Emirates Stadium on Sunday as Robin van Persie steps out at his former stomping ground for the first time since his headline-grabbing move to Manchester United last summer.

The Netherlands international arrives back in north London a champion, with the Red Devils having already wrapped up the title with victory over Aston Villa last week, and a guard of honour from those he called his team-mates a matter of months ago awaits his return.

Despite Arsene Wenger's calls for respect for Sir Alex Ferguson's side and their top-goalscoring striker, Gunners supporters are set to give their former hero a rocky reception after his decision to quit the club for one of their chief Premier League rivals.

Szczesny senior fumes at Wenger over son's poor progress

Wojciech Szczesny has found himself out of the Arsenal reckoning in recent weeks, with Arsene Wenger citing his mental state as the key factor.

But the keeper's father, who himself represented Poland during his playing career, has laid the blame squarely at the Frenchman's door.

The younger Pole, according to Szczesny senior, was made to play through a series of injuries by his manager and is now suffering the consequences.

Whatever the reasons, Maciej is certain that it is the master, not the pupil, who is at fault.

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...
